Lately, I have bought a new CD player. The old one had been driving me nuts. So, the new one also has a cassette deck… yay! I dug out all my tapes. Many of them were self-recorded from the weekly chart show on the radio. So many treasures I forgot. Most of all, I immediately turned to some particular cassettes of Shakin’ Stevens. I decorated the walls of my room with posters of him. I had autographs, pillows, T-Shirts, scarfs, flags, buttons and patches all over my jeans jacket, and whatever you can think.
In 1983 (I was not even 13 years old), I saw him live in Vienna. My mom needed to accompany me but she did not mind it… lol! He was adorable. It is still unforgettable for me since it was my first concert… and seeing him live… wow!! So, today, I want to share one of my favorite love songs of his (actually, there is no song I don’t like). Who of my European friends remembers Shaky or this song?
A Love Worth Waiting For – Shakin’ Stevens
This rediscovery also inspired the poem for today. I hope you like it!
