The ladies running the show over at Monday Music Moves Me (Xmas Dolly, Stacy Uncorked, Cathy Kennedy, and Shakira) have provided the most awesome theme for this week’s music selections!
SONGS FROM THE YEAR YOUR CHILDREN WERE BORN
My kids are old-ish so that means I must be too…nah! It’s all about the age you are in your head! At least to me. Here's to 1990 and 1993. While I was working, preparing bottles, warming jars of food and cutting up PB&J's, I was also listening and dancing!
In 1990, Phil Collins had several songs in the top 100. Wilson Phillips was new on the charts with harmonies and lyrics that drew me in so completely that I ran out for their album. Janet Jackson was making a run and Milli Vanilli hadn’t been “found out” yet.
It was difficult for me to choose just two songs from this year. So I picked one that I still love from Heart that’s a bit scandalous if you listen to the words. I’ve always loved those two rocker chicks!
And the other was the one I sang and danced to the most in the early 90’s playing at every single party for the next several years. Remember the B52?
1993 seemed to be all about Whitney and I Will Always Love You. Meatloaf was jamming I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) as she belted out those ballads.
I was and still am touched by Stings song, Fields Of Gold. It makes my mind drift to places and people I love to remember.
I played Aerosmith’s Cryin’ constantly. Feel in love with the video on MTV and young Alicia Silverstone. Just wait until the end of this. Pretty damn good and a nice screw you!
And I just had to add a third. Rod might creep out some of you but he was all that back in the early days (despite the crazy stomach stories, if you know what I mean…) and this is my absolute, hands down, favorite song of his! He’s singing it live and I love that everyone sings it with him.
