Dance Down Memory Lane

Ah, Stasha, how I've missed you and the lovely Monday Listicles! So this week while I'm cooking up new projects for workshops that cannot be shared quite yet, I thought I'd pop over and see what the Listicles are up to...and it's a list of ten favorite songs from my senior year in high school. 

This I can do...a little musical procrastination walk down memory lane never hurt anyone! I tend to be a little all over the place in musical taste. I listened to my fair share of everything from country to Nirvana, but I {heart} happy music, and I like to sing along...ahem...loudly. If I had a nickle for every time the boys asked me to stop singing...well, whatever, they will appreciate my vocal talents someday, right? And in my defense I was just 17, and you know what I mean. Rock on, baby!
Yep, total band geek! I'm second from the left in the front row. Go, Wildcats!
My Top 10 Making-a-Radio-Mix-Tape from Senior Year of High School

1. Life Is a Highway by Tom Cochrane Loved it the moment I heard it. Now known as the Cars song in my household, eliciting squeals and requests for the movie every time the boys hear it. At least they let me listen to it, instead of Eric Herman.

2. Too Funky by George Michael  Anything. George. Michael. Is. Awesome.

3. Friday I'm in Love by the Cure He's wearing more eye makeup in this video than I've worn in my life...all together...still love it!

4. Everything About You by Ugly Kidd Joe John despises this song...you could say he hates everything about it...which requires loud sing-a-longs, dontcha think?

5. Baby, Baby by Amy Grant I wanted her hair so badly!

6. Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega/DNA  You are totally humming right now, aren't you? I am...

7. Groove is in the Heart by Dee-light Remember when MTV had videos? 

8. Move This by Technotronic so I don't dance, like almost never, especially in high school. Except secretly...in my room..to this song. 

9. Tennessee by Arrested Development I've never been to Tennessee. It's not a chipper song. Still you gotta belt it out, right?

10. I Feel Lucky by Mary Chapin Carpenter Country is big where I went to HS, so there was a lot of Randy Travis, Judds, Garth Brooks, etc... I disown any knowledge of Billy Ray though.

Bonus That's What Friends Are For by Dionne Warwick & co...it was our graduation song. 'Nuff said!
