On Sirius/XM’s 80s on 8 channel, each weekend is spent playing the top 40 songs from the same week from some year in the 1980s. This weekend’s selection was 1988 and May 1988, all in all, was a hell of a good month for me.
Hearing the songs it’s hard not to think back and wish to be young again, albeit not quite as stupid as I might have been. How we survive 19 to make it to 40, especially the males, remains a mystery to me. About the one thing I don’t miss from that time is my first car, a 1980 Monte Carlo low-rider that didn’t need oil changes because it leaked about a quart every three weeks or so and managed a whopping 12 miles to the gallon.
So many songs to choose from, we’ll go with this one …
