December 1963

Is there a song from your childhood that you love but haven't heard for long time and then you hear it you're happy to have it stuck in your head all day? That's what happened to me yesterday morning on my way into work I heard December 1963 by Frankie Vallie and The Four Seasons. I don't have any specific memories linked to this song. Only that I loved it when I was a kid and I still do. Speaking of musical gems that have a year in the title, 1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins and Bryan Adams crooning about the year I was born Summer of 69.

A little ditty 'bout Jack and Diane.

Subtle innuendos follow.

Adam Ant dancing with the Solid Gold Dancers. It doesn't get more 80's fabulous than that.

Oh what a night!!!!! Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me...

Adam Ant was on Solid Gold? Really? I guess everyone had to go on SG back then.

The Grease and Saturday Night Fever soundtracks show up pretty frequently in my childhood memories. My friend Andrea Miller was the cool kid and she had all the good stuff at her house.

How fun that you're starting up a new blog! :) Voices Carrie...I just got the joke! LOL! :D

I heard "Self Control" by Laura Branigan the other day and I grinned because I don't think I'd heard it since I was a teenager.

I also remember hearing "In My Dreams" by REO Speedwagon & "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" by Pet Shop Boys after not hearing them for years, and just having them stuck in my head all day! :)


......until we quit and Joanie got married. Should have known we'd never get far.


Best Frankie Valli Song:Grease
Worst Frankie Valli song: Big Girls Don't Cry
Best Frankie Valli Achievement: Doing the commercials for Sonic Drive-In (I LOVE their chili dogs and cherry limeade. Oh yeah, I guess you knew that since we ate at Sonic twice in Colorado last year)


Prince: 1999
Bowling For Soup: 1985

My mental jukebox is dragging today. That's all the year songs I could think of.


Oooh, Ooooh, I got another one.

Me and Millie and Paul Davis groupies (may he Rest In Peace) and we both drool over "65 Love Affair."

This song was blaring on the AM radio of the family station wagon as we were headed to Wheatridge for a soccer game.

I remember I was in the 3rd grade, so that would put you in Kindergarten. If my memory serves me correctly, my team won and on the way home we heard this song again. Forever cementing the song and the memory of that day in my head.

Oh yeah, that station wagon was wood-paneled, had a rear window that rolled up and was at least 54 feet long.
