Something new and different

I've gotten kind of bored with doing recipes - that's the way I feel toward cooking too - so I decided to do something different. Hope you guys don't mind.

Music has always been a big part of my life. It shouldn't be surprising that I have a son who's a musician, he's certainly been exposed to enough of it over his lifetime. In fact, he could name the titles of songs when he could barely speak.

My iPod has a wide variety of songs and I thought it would be fun to share some of the things on my iPod and the history behind them. Going all the way back to my high school days.

I think most of us are around the same age, so some of these might be familiar to you, and possibly a little nostalgic.

When I was in high school, I began my obsession with Australian's. LOL This hunky Australian was Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital, before going on to a hugely success career as a solo artist. His biggest hit, Jesse's Girl, is still popular, even today. But here's a few of his other songs that are my favorites.



Video's have come a long way since 1984 (lol) but that song is just as great today as it was back then!! IMO



When I was 19 I was lucky enough to get to go to his concert. I was also lucky enough to get there hours and hours before the doors opened. I was even lucky enough to get to the front row!!!!

Then my luck turned downward. The crowd got crazy and started crushing us into the barrier that separated us from the stage. The security guards ended up pulling me, and one of the girls I was with, over the security barricade to get us air and keep us from being crushed.

All in all - I'd say it was worth it! LOL I got to the front row, it was an amazing experience and it's a story I can tell on my blog. :)

Have a great Thursday!!
Peace and love,
Alannah

Love Rick Springfield - though I've never been to one of his concerts. The boy could wear a mullet!

This is a great idea for a blogpost, Alannah. I'm looking forward to more insight into your iPod.

Le sigh..love Rick Springfield. It's a real shame today is a NO INTERNET day, otherwise I'd go on youtube and look up more of his stuff.

Ah well, maybe tomorrow.

Now, who else do you have in your iPod?

I didn't figure I was the only one who broke out in a sweat looking at him!

And I still do...even with the mullet! LOL
