#HitsByYears – 1982

Last but not least, there are three more musicians who were not only big in the 80s but already in the 70s. I am not telling too much since you know all of them very well. As I said, I was trying to find songs that were popular but have become forgotten treasures. I confess that this is not the case with the last song but… that one had to be! 😉

#HitsByYears – 1982

The first song today is from a band I only remember because of that one song. I had completely forgotten about it. Thanks to my not going with the still popular 80s songs, I found it. The second one is another classic which I have not heard in ages. Do you remember both songs?

#HitsByYears – 1982

You know Amadeus of Falco. He recorded a version for the US in 1985 and reached number one on the charts with that version (as the first Austrian musician). But Falco’s first big hit was in 1982, and the last time I was in the States (which is quite a while ago), I heard an English version of that song. I thought, why not sharing the original today. The lyrics are German but also in Viennese dialect.

#HitsByYears – 1982

In this song series, I am trying not to share the hits that are still played on the radio stations. I rather dig out the forgotten ones which many of you will remember and loved listening to. Today, we are going with two songs which are from two of the greatest musicians in my opinion which I haven’t heard in ages.

Again, time for writing is rare and I decided to treat me you guys to another week filled with music from a great era. Once I found myself in the middle of an ocean of amazing songs, I thought it would have been less effort to write my regular posts… lol… but what can we do? It’s the 80s, and the choice of songs only grows with each year. So I decided to share two songs in every post. I am positive that nobody minds it 😉

#HitsByYears – 1981

For the last day of the 1981 week I am sharing two songs. The first one is a song that goes well along with the inspiration I try to share on my blog. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from pursuing your dreams, certainly not yourself. There may be interruptions and constructions along the way. But as long as your dream burns in you, it wants to be lived. Maybe you need to adjust the sails or check your GPS as long as you hold them tight.
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who celebrates it!

It is Thursday, and I will make it a #ThrowbackThursday this week – at least for me. A few weeks ago, I told you about my teenage crush in the early 80s. There are so many hits of his during those years that I couldn’t resist sharing two songs. I am sure you won’t mind it.

#HitsByYears – 1981

Today’s song takes me back to the summer of 1981. Like every year, we spent most of the summer break in Vienna. I remember this song playing whenever we turned on the radio in the morning. So, this song is always lifiting me up since it reminds me of fun, summer, sun, and unburdened joy.

#HitsByYears – 1980

There would be so many more great hits to share, but that is a bit of the thrill that keeps the suspense higher. So, I will conclude this week with only two songs. One is what we call a one-hit-wonder with lots of cover versions, and the other one is coming from one of the greatest musicians of this time. I hope you liked my choice. Have a great Friday!

#HitsByYears – 1980

Although I do remember some songs very well doesn’t mean I knew the title. The same happened with the song I am sharing today. I could not recognize the title, but once I heard the song… beautiful! It was confusing because some sources said it was released in 1980 and some in 1979. However, I thought it won’t hurt to listen to this gem. Happy Romantic Tuesday, everybody!

#MomentsOfJoy

I checked YouTube for some joyful videos. I simply put in the word JOY, and the first thing that popped up was an 80s boy group. I remember their song and it made me giggle instantly. It sounds like they hardly tried to imitate Modern Talking – obviously not very successful. When I checked out the video, I immediately decided to share it today. The song, the video, everything is so constructed which gave me such a good laugh. I could not remember how bad it was. I thought this must be the most embarrasing 80s song 😂 Do you know a worse one?
However, I hope it gives you some joyful moments😂

I was 16 when I went to London for the second time in my life. Not only London was special but the fact, that my best friend went along. It was her first trip to a foreign country and that even with a plane!

For this Friday I am sharing a song which may be almost forgotten since there are one or two other songs of that artist which are basically heard. Unleash your fantasy and have a great weekend!

Last Saturday I had tickets for Status Quo. They were the main act at an annual festival in our country. Of course, they look older BUT boy did they bring the hall to a full boil! It was already a hot day and hot inside but nobody cared. We jumped, danced sang, clapped our hands, … It was an amazing experience and I felt like a teenager again hearing those songs again.

Happy Romantic Tuesday, everybody! The weekend was gorgeous with temperatures around 20 °C (about 75 °F). It is almost spring and while scheduling this song I am thinking of romantic days on a lake or at the sea. Again, Italian songs start playing in my head. This one fits very well… when even it is more on the dramatic romantic side. Anyway, I remember that song well and it also represents the warm season which makes me already feel good. Read more ›

Monday Song

music-2087771_960_720

The song I am sharing today is directly connected with memories of my first trip to the US. I was 15 and we flew over to NYC as part of a travel group. It was the year 1985. For the younger readers, at that time we had neither iPods nor smartphones. But I had my walkman (what is a walkman🤪) and serveral tapes – most of them I dubbed of long-playing records o “singles” myself.
Long-playing records? Those black oversized CDs which you had to put on a turntable and play with a needle which transferred the sound. “Singles”? The smaller version. There was only one song on each side. Yes, records have had two sides and you had to turn the record when one side was played to the end. Also we had to be very careful not to scratch the surface or the song was ruined either by the needle jumping over that scratch or because it got stuck and repeated the same part over and over again. They were not as robust as CDs. We did not have CDs either at that time yet, by the way.
So, I remember sitting in that bus with my headphones on. We had visited Washington D.C. and we were on the way back. It was already dark outside and I simply enjoyed being there and listening to the songs on my tape. Read more ›

Good morning in the middle of the week (already)! From today until Friday I have three very filled days to face as I am not only working all day but also have appointments on all evenings. This means that I may not be able to visit all of you but I will for sure get back to all comments! Sending you lots of hugs! Have a great day!

Although I am a woman at work I don’t think it is an overkill… lol. Sending you lots of hugs! Have a great day! Read more ›

Song of the Day

song-of-the-dayGood Morning on this Monday! For today I was looking into the songs of an Italian group. They were big in Italy and Europe in the early 80’s. I picked one of the songs I liked most… and there are many! It is a frosty day again over here and I thought some Mediterranean feelings won’t hurt… lol!  Read more ›

Yesterday I came across Joan Jett due to the cover of Have you ever seen the rain?“. I remembered one of my favorite songs of hers and no… it is not I love Rock’n Roll.
Crimson and Clover is one of Joan Jet’s greatest hits. But it is actually a cover version too (originally by Tommy James And The Shondells).

Song of the Day – Whispering Goodbye

When we think this year already took too many great living legends it teaches us something different. I can’t believe the sad news. But when it is right what I heard then George Michael passed away peacefully in his sleep. Yesterday the song “Last Christmas” has gotten a completely new meaning.

RIP George Michael

This song came to my mind when my thoughts went to my first visit to New York City when I was 15. I went there with my parents in a travel group. On the bus rides for example to Washington D.C. or to Philadelphia, I mostly listened to my walkman. This was one of the songs I recorded right before we went on that trip. Whenever I hear it or think of that song I also think of that trip! Read more ›

Another song I liked to listen to and never thought about the meaning nor did I bother to really understand the lyrics back then. But when I listened to the song now it really made me think and I checked Wikipedia:

The first line of the song, “All God’s children need traveling shoes”, is the title of a book by writer/poet Maya Angelou.
Speaking about the somewhat obscure and enigmatic lyrics, Tikaram has offered different views on their meaning, but said it’s mostly about the particular relationship with the world one feels when entering adulthood. “the song is really about not understanding – when you’re 18, you’ve got a very particular emotional relationship with the world, you feel very isolated, and everybody else is so distant and cold. And I think I was singing about not feeling anything or not being moved by things around. I think this is a strong feeling when you’re just after adolescence. Read more ›

Happy Halloween to all of you! I hope you are forgiving me that I wasn’t around on the weekend. It barely happens but I was knocked out by a really nasty. Excepting replying to comments I allowed myself to take a break. But I am back 😁

I don’t know if the song today is fitting Halloween (for some it may… lol). I thought it was a funny way of starting the week. So happy Monday! Read more ›

Hello, my wonderful friends. When you are reading this post I am already about to experience two exciting days. I am going to translate both days for an English medium at her sessions. I am happy and thankful that I am granted so much trust and given the chance to learn so much, and to also being able to use my English knowledge for something that beautiful. It is going to be a busy week but I will do my best to at least catch up with comments.

I leave you with another great song of a great music era! Happy Monday and week to all of you!

I wish you all a good day !

I was 14 when this song was released and I did not care about the lyrics. Most of all because it was a foreign language for me. So today is the first time I pay attention to them….. wow!  Read more ›

Yesterday that song started playing while I was driving. When I thought about the title my fantasy went into a totally different direction. Since I am dealing with occasional heat waves I thought it would make the perfect title for a menopause song 😂 I broke out in laughter instantly. My son who was sitting next to me looked at me uncomprehending and shaking his head with rolling eyes….. moms! Just felt like sharing this with you. Happy Friday 😄 Read more ›

The song I want to share today – for what reason ever – always reminds me of Fridays, weekends, time to go out. When this song was released over here in summer 1986 it was the year when I started going out with my circle of friends on the weekends. This song was always around.  I wish you all a fantastic Friday and a happy weekend!!! Read more ›

80’s, more 80’s …. yay! Another one from the year 1984. It is a real summer song and . After some days which already looked like fall, summer is back again. The temperatures started rising again since Monday and of course, they are the hottest from Wednesday to Friday when I am at work… lol! But whatever we do, isn’t it much nicer when the weather is nice? So let’s celebrate summer as long as we can…  Read more ›

For the last song this week, I dug again into the 80’s treasure box. Here is a song from 1982. As I experience it with so many songs, it is the first time I listened to the lyrics. I never cared about it as a teenager. I guess it was mostly because of the language barrier but for sure also because I did not bother to look that close at the lyrics.  But in the end, I love this song simply because it is a reminder to good times! Wish you all a good time on this Friday and a happy weekend! Read more ›

Yay, it is Romantic Tuesday 😍😍 Today I share another one of my favorite love songs. I was 15 when the song was published and it reminds me of one of my crushes during that time.  Hearing that song those butterflies are fluttering vividly again! I post it today because this song inspired me for my poem and therefore fits it well! Enjoy! Read more ›

One more trip back to the 80’s 😁 Gosh, what a year that was. I turned 15. It was my graduation year and first love showed up. I was part of a wonderful circle of friends and I woke up into a new me. I am sure many of you remember this song. But even if not it will give you that foot tapping experience. Happy Friday!!! Read more ›

Song of the Day

Good Morning on this Friday! I hope you are all doing well and you are already excited about the coming weekend. First I am working until 1 pm as usual but in the afternoon I will head towards our small local airport. My youngest son and I will spend the weekend in Vienna. No laptop, limited internet access, and the fact that I want to dedicate that time to my son will keep me from getting to WordPress until Monday. For now, I wish you all a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your weekend….. I will!!!  Read more ›

Song of the Day – Forever Michael

Wednesday is my community day when I post a guest quote (in case there is one in line – which basically always is). Whenever I do a Special song week I also started to post suggestions of friends on that day. Here are some desired songs from our community: Read more ›

Song of the Day

You have no idea how long I was searching for this particular song. I tried it again once in a while but because I could not remember who sang it there was almost no chance and I was not sure either if the title was really Weekend. But finally, I could reconstruct the year in which it was released: 1982! And there it was! I remember that at that time the song was played up and down for weeks. To me, it is still the ultimate weekend song because it has such a cheering up effect. So, enjoy!

Happy Weekend everybody!!! Read more ›

I am still excited about the Blogger Bash experience of last Saturday, about meeting so many of our community. I am immensely thankful for having you guys in my life. There isn’t much more to say to this song except that it is dedicated to my amazing blogily. Read more ›

Song of the Day – ABBA Week

Welcome in this new week! I hope you all had a good weekend. I know who had: Congrats again to our new and proud grandma Lynn to her two twin grandkids!

But last weekend the Eurovision Song Contest took place. What a Saturday for me. First, I was singing at a wonderful wedding and when I arrived back home I could enjoy other people sing. After a chat with a friend, I decided to make this an ABBA week. Wikipedia says: Read more ›

Song of the Day

On Saturday,  the Eurovision Song Contest is taking place again. For all of you who don’t know what it is I stole borrowed the perfect description and some facts from Wikipedia:

The Eurovision Song Contest (French: Concours Eurovision de la chanson), often shortened to Eurovision, is the longest-running annual international TV song competition, held, primarily, among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) since 1956. The competition was based upon the existing Sanremo Music Festival held in Italy since 1951. Read more ›

Song of the Day

Yes, the sun is out since yesterday…. finally!!! But the temperatures seem more like January than almost May. This morning we had 21° Fahrenheit. Crazy! But it is finally supposed to warm up again. I really hope so!!! Anyway, I thought of something light and cheerful today. When I got to this song and the video I immediately thought of our Trini. Read more ›

Song of the Day

Really, I enjoy Tuesday songs the most…. going through some love songs, drifting away in dreams and perhaps memories….. simply helplessly romantic 😍  For today, I picked one of my favorite love songs.  Read more ›

Song of the Day – Queen Week

Today I want to share some of Queen’s 80’s songs. There are so many I would have loved to post like Seven Seas of Rhye, We will Rock you, We are the Champions (although older), Flash, Play The Game, and many more…. the list would never end. I hope you like the few ones I picked. I don’t post songs I already did before although those might be missed. But then please check my page Song of The Day. If you are a real fan you will find them throughout the past year… lol! But nevertheless, the following ones have their “magic” too! Read more ›

Song of the Day

I am really excited to share a song with you today which might have been barely played on the radios stations. It was released in 1985. I have no idea anymore how I came across this song back then but I remember that I played the single over and over again.

The song is about a woman who calls her spouse who is stationed on Mars. She can only call him once a year. A special version of long-distance relationship.  Read more ›

Had to catch up with my household today and prepare a lot for the coming days when I might be more off than on. But here is the song. When I wrote “household” I just knew which song to post 😁 Enjoy! Huge community hug 😘 Read more ›

What can I do? I simply can’t help it. I am a kid of the 80’s  😁! Lots of memories for some and perhaps something new to get introduced to for our younger generation. Enjoy a song from the early 80’s! Read more ›

Let’s start with a funny tune into this new week. Who remembers that song? It was part of the soundtrack to the movie The Jewel of The Nile . Has the penny dropped? 😉 Read more ›

Good morning, friends! OK, already lunch time over here. I am having a busy time the coming days including Sunday. Please forgive me for not being around too much. I leave you with a bit animal power from 31 years ago 🐯 Read more ›

Song of the Day

That was the coolest and most exciting special edition week I did by now. Madonna was so much fun to do. She showed up when I was 13/14. Her songs accompanied me throughout my teenage years and they were definitely like an awakening to a new me. All of her songs during the 80’s conveyed that feeling. So listening to those songs s like watching a movie of my story. To tell from all the comments that did not only happen to me!  Read more ›

Song of the Day – Madonna Week

Happy Weekend to all of you! What about a little vacation atmosphere and some relaxing tunes. Madonna has it all. I remember listening to the first song while on the ferry from Greece back to Italy, looking at the sea, enjoying the sun. I will always remember those moments when I hear that song. Hope you like my choice and stay tuned for tomorrow, you won’t regret it! Read more ›

Song of the Day – Madonna Week

The weekend is close and having a Madonna week made it clear to me from the beginning which song to post for today. One of my absolute favorites of her earlier days. That one was also part of the soundtrack of the movie Desperately Seeking Susan in which Madonna played a part. Lots of memories during the time when the single was released. The second one is another one from her great True Blue album. Happy Friday! Read more ›

Song of the Day – Madonna Week

Hello on this Wednesday – half way through!!! I hope you are all doing fine and the week has been well so far. Wednesday is always the day I am posting guest quotes. Actually the perfect day for posting song suggestions of two friends. Again without lyrics when posting more than one song.

Stay tuned, I’ll be coming up with some news later today 😁

Song of the Day – Madonna Week

It is Tuesday and Madonna is up all week long – sticking to the 80’s. I thought about two songs (therefore without lyrics) for today and think you wouldn’t mind it; a more romantic one and a more “discussed” one 😉 Read more ›

Song of the Day – Madonna Week

Two weeks ago Lisa and I agreed that it was absolutely time to do a Madonna week! Although I loved that idea immediately I was also aware of the challenge. Hits about decades passing into 7 days with one song a day? Impossible. But on the other hand, right this can make it even more interesting which songs might appear. Lisa suggested focusing on a particular theme or decade. A very good idea and of course, easy to decide for me. Here we go: Madonna during the 80’s! Read more ›

Song of the Day – Simply Red Week

Sorry, guys, I am late today. Having a birthday in the family tomorrow. Today is filled with preparations and going out for dinner and tomorrow with last preparations and with celebrating. My review will be coming up soon. For now here is song number 6 in our Simply Red week. I picked another not so well known song from 1987. I love the video. It was filmed in New York and it is totally 80s. But….. Read more ›

Song of the Day – Simply Red Week

Hmmmm…… today I found a song I can remember but it is barely played – at least over here. It is even another 10 years older than the one I posted yesterday. A nice rhythm and for once not a love song. Hope you like it! Read more ›

Song of the Day

Sorry, friends, I am late today! I am going to have a busy weekend and I apologize in advance that I might not be able to get to all of you today. That way I hope you won’t forget about me… 😉 …. Love you, guys! Read more ›

Song of the Day

This is one of my favorite bands of the 80’s and the song I picked for today is from my favorite album of theirs. After I bought Brothers In Arms (guess it is clear now which band 😊) I listened to it over and over again and I still love it. But there are so many great songs of theirs… I guess I will do a Dire Straits week once too…. For now, I hope you like this song.

I hope you are all well enjoying this Sunday. Big hugs to all! Read more ›

Song of the Day

Yesterday we got the message that Maurice White, the lead singer of Earth, Wind & Fire, died. I want to share one of the songs I grew up with and which is also one of my favorites of theirs.

I don’t know how much I will be around this weekend But I will do my best to at least get back to your comments.

Have a nice weekend! Read more ›
