I have been in SUCH an '80s mood lately. OK, I'm pretty much always in an '80s mood, but lately, it's been even moreso.

Last night, I dreamed that I went to see Berlin in concert. I wanted to hear stuff like "Masquerade", "Sex (I'm A...)" and "No More Words", but everyone in the audience, who appeared to be about 25 years old, was shouting "play 'Take My Breath Away!'", because of course, that IS the song that Berlin is most known for. It kills me when a band gets tagged as sort of a one-hit wonder when they're just NOT. They had some darned good songs long before freakin' Top Gun came along. But I digress..

Anyway, that's a pet peeve of mine in real life, and evidently it bugs me in my dreams, too. Oh, but the funny thing? When I woke up after dreaming of seeing Berlin, I was speaking German. Woah, what? Not fluent German (I WISH), but it's like those years of German class in high school and college were all flooding back to me in the early morning hours. I looked out the window and thought "wie ist das Weather heute?" And then I told myself the weather was sort of meh and der Himmel wast grau.

I promise I haven't been smoking anything, illicit or otherwise.

I feel strangely back to my old self, unlike the new self of late, that I wasn't liking or enjoying being very much. Yessir, hopefully the old me is back. Maybe that new/old me will actually post on here on a regular basis, too, because that's totally what the old me did.

Now, it's quiz time! Who can tell me (without cheating and using Google) what epic (in my mind anyway) '80s movie this song was used in? I'll even be more specific. What shower scene in what epic '80s movie was this song used in?



My goodness, but I had such a crush on Tony James and his massive pink and black hair back in 1986. See, I even gave you the year the movie was from, too. There's no way you can't get this!!

(Answers are screened to give everyone a fair shake.)

Happy Monday LJ!!!!!!!!!!

While I should've remembered this, since my memory is so much more tuned into music than anything else, for some reason it escapes me (even after looking it up). Meh. Good movie, though.

Beuller? Beuller?

BTW, have you run across Rock Sugar yet? http://www.rocksugarband.com/

Think mash-ups between 80's Metal/Hard Rock & 80's Pop/Rock that actually works. The lead singer is best known as the voice of Yakko Warner in the Animaniacs.

The musicianship and the voice talent is awesome, not to mention the sheer cohones requires to attempt this, much less give it the 110% needed to make it work.

'80s -- packing lunches-- driving kids to school-- No I do not wish them years back:)

That was my mom during the '70s. Although it was easier for her. She worked at the school I attended, so it was sort of a one-shot deal and we were both where we needed to be.

Oh man...jealous. And would you believe on the way home last night, they actually played "Masquerade" on the '80s station? I must be psychic or something.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

I remember being mad the song wasn't more prominently/thoroughly featured.

I had a crush on Tony James, too. Omfg.

Very good. And yeah, it could've been more prominently featured, although the fact that they used it at all was probably notable.

Was he not just a doll? Unfortunately, he has not aged well. :-/

I know he was in Sisters Of Mercy for a while but, uh, it looks like Sigue Sigue Sputnik are touring? They're coming to Seattle in the summer. Hmmmmmm...

Why couldn't you and I have grown up close to each other? We could've gone to awesome concerts and crushed on the same rock stars.

Oh my gosh...so I am! I coulda sworn we were the same age, or thereabouts. But OK, yeah. I could've driven. ;-)

Only after seeing the answer, I must admit. The song that stuck out for me in "Ferris" was "Oh Yeah."

I think you just liked the footwear.

The footwear was pretty awesome, but I was all about the hair. Did you SEE those fauxhawks?

That was, ironically, the first new record I bought when I moved to Tennessee in '86. Funny, I thought it was a heavy metal band. I was torn between buying the record or the tape so I opted for the record (it was a dollar cheaper) and dubbed it to tape, which I had a drawer full. I don't know what happened to it though, I think I gave it away or sold it.

I never knew you had that (I don't think.) You probably don't remember seeing them on my dorm room wall in McCord.
