Now Listening to... 🎧

ThrowbackThursday

Today's #ThrowbackThursday track is this good one from Billy Joel. I believe Westlife did a cover of this that became really popular. It's always good to listen to the original though.

It's Thursday, so here's a really good #ThrowbackThursday song to listen to.

Is it fair to say that this is what emo sounded like in the 80s? Okay, maybe not. But man, check out these lyrics...

Once upon a time I was falling in love But now I'm only falling apart There's nothing I can do A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life But now there's only love in the dark Nothing I can say A total eclipse of the heart ♪ ♫ ♪

Let's do another #ThrowbackThursday piece. This song conjures up the scent of baby powder and hair gel. It brings back memories of waiting outside the gate of our house as a kid, waiting for a jeepney to pass by, so I can catch a ride to school.

Sometimes, if I'm early enough, I would even ride one that is driving away from school. It goes up a mountain, then loops back down and goes toward my school. It was a good way to pass the time.

The feel of the early morning breeze, this song blasting on the speakers, the excitement of meeting friends at school, those were good times.

Perfect song for #ThrowbackThursday. By the way, every time I hear this, I don't just remember my childhood, I also remember cruising around in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. 😀

And I meant every word I said When I said that I love you I meant that I love you forever

And I'm gonna keep on lovin' you Cause it's the only thing I wanna do I don't wanna sleep I just wanna keep on lovin' you ♪ ♫ ♪

Back to the past with this catchy pop rock track from the 80s.

On a night when bad dreams become a screamer When they're messin' with the dreamer I can laugh it in the face Twist and shout my way out And wrap yourself around me 'Cos I ain't the way you found me And I'll never be the same Oh, yeah Well, 'cos you (Ooh-ho, hoo-ooh, ooh-oo) You make my dreams come true (You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo) Well, well, well you (You-hoo, hoo-hoo-ooh) You make my dreams come true (You make my dreams) Come true (You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo) ♪ ♫ ♪
