#PeaceSongTuesday – 21

Since we still have this terrible war in the current conflict in Eastern Europe going, I would like to continue playing songs for peace and unity in this world for a while.

#HitsByYears – 1985 #5

We arrived at the last day of a week that could have been filled with so many more songs of a fantastic music year. So here we go with the last three songs for this #HitsByYears week. One of the songs was written by an Austrian artist and reached #1 on the US charts. When I visited Manhatten (as I mentioned yesterday), I bought the single of the American version and was so proud of it. I was the only one of all my friends who owned it. However, today I am sharing the original version here.
It was awesome digging into the hits of 1985 – when even I only shared a fraction of those many songs that brought up beautiful memories.

#HitsByYears – 1985 #4

Today, I am sharing three songs that I listened to on my “walkman” when I visited the US for the first time in my life. The walls in my bedroom were covered not only with posters of Michael Jackson but of New York City. And here I was, standing in awe for the whole time to be at the place I had been dreaming of for so long.

It is #PeaceSongTuesday and 1985 too, had some songs that fit well into this day – unfortunately.

#HitsByYears – 1985 #1

Welcome to another #HitsByYears week. Two years ago, we started with my birth year, 1970, and, meanwhile, we arrived at one of my favorite music years within my favorite music decade. This time the choice was the hardest for me. I reduced my already limited list to 25 songs which was already difficult. And from that, I whittled down the list again to a maximum of three songs per day. So, unfortunately, you won’t find “Take on Me”, “Rhythm of the Night”, “Burning Heart”, “The Power of Love”, or other great hits of that year. But I hope you like the ones I am going to share over the coming days.

#HitsByYears – 1984

#HitsByYears – 1984

Let’s continue with the hard choices of this fantastic music year! You will find famous songs that are still played on the radio today, and others that may have been forgotten over the years.

When Doves Cry – Prince & The Revolution

It’s A Hard Life – Queen

Let’s Hear It For The Boy – Deniece Williams

I know there are so so so many more famous and great songs that have shaped the history of music. I hope you like my choices. However, please feel free and leave your personal favorite song of 1984 in the comments. Since all of the songs you find here have been already scheduled in advance, you may still find your favorite in a later post anyway.

In Love and Light

#HitsByYears – 1984

Since I have not had much time for scheduling posts after I returned from my vacation week, I will go with another #HitsByYears week. I am sure you don’t mind. Meanwhile, we have arrived at one of the greatest music years of the 80s – at least in my opinion. It was hard to break the songs down to a maximum of three per post. You will find famous songs that are still played on the radio today, and others that may have been forgotten over the years.

#SongTuesday

The following song is one of those I would have loved to add to my latest #HitsByYears week. So, here we go with another song that takes me back to 1983.

Baby Jane – Rod Stewart

In Love and Light

#HitsByYears – 1983

The last day of digging songs from 1983 has already arrived. That is why you will find again three songs instead of two. There are so many other stars who produced unforgettable hits, like The Pointer Sisters, Paul Young, Culture Club, Kiss, Lionel Ritchie…. But of course, this week cannot miss a certain duet of two of the greatest. I hope you enjoyed this little journey through another great year of music.

#HitsByYears – 1983

The two songs I’m going to share today I barely heard again after they played nonstop on the radio in 1983. It was absolutely time to dig them out again. I always particularly liked the Slade hit, just a real earworm. I was 13 years old and didn’t really pay attention to the lyrics. But when I listened to My Oh My again, it touched my heart even more because the message is so important and timely right now.

#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?

What about working out frequently, guys 🤨 Maybe some of you are getting motivated with the next song. No worries, you can relax again with song number two! Have a great day!

#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.

#HitsByYears – 1982

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 😉

The warm season has finally begun is hopefully showering us with sunshine and warmth instead of rain soon. However, I felt like sharing some romantic Italian summer vibes today.

#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!

#HitsByYears – 1981

The following song might be a special treat for my UK friends today because it won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981. It is also a great song to start the weekend. Enjoy the day and have a great Saturday.

#HitsByYears – 1981

Wow, already Friday. There are still so many hits left. I think it won’t hurt to let 1981 run the week until Sunday. What do you think? But for now, get some extra 80s power from a young blond power woman.

#HitsByYears – 1981

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.

It is quite a while ago since I went for the last #HitsByYears week. A lot is going on on all ends lately, and I don’t have much time for posting. So, let’s continue with 1981.

#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

Today, I want to go with a song that I got introduced to by an 80s series with the same title. I loved the series. I remember the episodes were on tv every Monday evening… and I was always ready to watch. I loved it!

It is already halftime of this #HitsByYears week and therefore I start posting more than only one song.

#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!

#HitsByYears – 1980

The past months and weeks were tough but at least I passed the exam last Saturday. This means that I don’t have to use every free minute for learning anymore. Therefore, my regular posts will be back from next week on. For this week, we are going with another song week.

#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😂

#RomanticTuesday Song

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! However, on my way back I had some singles (remember?) in my suitcase like Breaking Up My Heart (Shakin’ Stevens), Material Girl (Madonna), and the one below. Who remembers?

Monday Song

Lately, I was reminded of Frank Stallone. I don’t know how many albums he published. But I remembered a handful of songs I really loved during the 80s. He can be heard on  movie soundtracks for example “Staying Alive” or his brother’s movie “Rambo II”, of which I want to share a song today. Enjoy! Read more ›

Friday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Born in 1970, the 80s were the decade where I started waking up to my own life. So, I am a complete kid of the 80s and therefore that music is still part of me. 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!

They Still Rock!!

IMG_20190706_223344.jpg

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.

I hope you had a good week or and if not then I hope the weekend will help you to recover from it or find solutions to possible problems. However, I simply want it to be perfect for you.

(When I scheduled the song for last Tuesday I came across this one and thought it won’t hurt to share another nice song of that band.)

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone. We had a wonderful time in Vienna celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. She did not expect us to come over and so the joy was even greater on both sides. My mom is truly the rock for us three daughters. Whatever it is, she is there. I am happy and thankful we have her. Read more ›

Happy Romantic Tuesday to all of you! I am going a bit more vivid and enthusiastic today.

Today I want to share a song with you which came to my mind last evening. I don’t know how familiar you are with it but I loved it and listened to it all the time when it was released… in 1985. Perhaps one of the reasons was that Michael Jackson sang the back vocals 😁 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 ›

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 ›

I opened YouTube to get some inspiration. But even before the site showed up the song already started playing in my head! I listened to it over and over again when it was released in 1983.

Song of the Day

Yesterday while talking to a friend I remembered this song of an Austrian band. They were famous in the 80s and got well-known through their song Life is Life. But that’s not the song I want to share today. Hope you like my pick 😊 Read more ›

A twisting Song of the Day!

It is another sunny day and I felt like posting something that brings your mood and feet in motion. I thought of a song of the year 1983 that always makes me twisting. The only thing missing is a pool… 🌊 👙🍸 anyway, let’s dance! Have fun and enjoy!!!!!

Sorry, about the quality of the sound. But I thought the original video would be more fun.

Hey, happy weekend to all of you!!! I am off today for a workshop. Therefore I will be late with replying. Today I want to share a song with you which always makes me jump.

Have a wonderful weekend all together! Love you all!!! Read more ›

International Song of the Day

I felt like making Wednesday my “international” song of the day. I would like to post songs from different countries or in different languages. Here in Europe we are used to listening to several languages such as French, Italian, Spanish, or many others. I would like to start with a song of an Israeli woman. The song was released in the late 70s but only the remix of 1988 made it into the European charts. It even is partly English. I always loved that song and listening to it again I have to say I still do!!! Enjoy! Read more ›

Song of the Day!

Song of the Day

The reason I post this song today is NOT the song itself. It is the singer. I recently heard that song on the radio and saw his name showing up and thought “Wait! What?”. I know this song for soooo long and never thought about it but since I know more certain expressions and English slang I started laughing out loud. I don’t get it how someone who is familiar with the English language names himself after a “body part” of a bird….. 😂 I had the perfect German translation at hands… whoever was interested… Enjoy the song… bahahaha!

When I looked to the mountains yesterday I couldn’t resist to take a picture. It was too beautiful.

I immediately had this song in mind – passionate and magical like the evening sky. Read more ›

Song of the Day

Do you remember who’s Axel Foley? Yes, that’s Eddy Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop. Did you know that actually Silvester Stallone was supposed to play Axel? They did exchange him because the costs for the action scenes exploded. When Eddy Murphy was called they simply turned the action scenes into comedy scenes. A completely different movie. Thank God!!! Because it is just great the way it turned out. Read more ›

A Sunny Funny Song of the Day!

Easter is over. Easter Monday is also a holiday over here. But today everybody is at work again (except my daughter; she is off for the next two weeks – lucky girl). The next two weeks is no school and therefore I am also a little more flexible in my daily schedules and appointments with my clients.

I am thinking of taking some time off from blogging in order to finally finish my fifth book. I only have to work on my last chapter. But the last time I was working on it was 2 years ago. I have to change and add a lot. I don’t know if I can stay away too long since I would miss you all sooooo much. But I would let you know and be back for my 1 year anniversary in May! Read more ›

Song of the Day!

It is Good Friday and the first of a four days’ Easter weekend. The kids are off from school for the following two weeks as well and spring has arrived. We are having a beautiful morning after many days of storm, heavy rain and even some snow in between.

20150403_075525

I thought what song could meet this spring feeling? I thought of a song that was always played at any party we had with our school mates. Although it is a sad song and full of desperation it meant the complete opposite to me. Read more ›

Song of the Day!

Today’s song is something very special. I love Paul McCartney and here he is with Linda McCartney. She was the love of his life, his muse and the woman who stuck to him, backed him up, and supported him whatever. It was so sad when she passed. There is also a beautiful song he wrote for her.
