Like, OH MY GOD! It’s totally awesome you came back to find out what my favorite G’s are from the 1980s. Like the most rad tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
I think I love the theme song for Growing Pains as much as the actual show. It’s one of those songs that makes me ache, like a nostalgia for the 80s and my teens kind of ache – much like the theme to St. Elmo’s Fire (more on that on April 22nd). I still watch Growing Pains when it comes on tv, and I have the first few seasons on dvd. I remember acting out Growing Pains in drama class in high school. I played Maggie.
My favorite movie of all time is Grease, but it was released in 1978. Grease 2 was released in 1982. While Grease 2 isn’t nearly as great as the original, its campy cheesiness is brilliant. I love this movie and its soundtrack. “Cool Rider” was pretty much my theme song the summer between elementary and middle school – before I discovered real music.
Guns N Roses (go gos)
I enjoyed Guns N Roses in high school and have lots of memories associated with their songs including “Sweet Child of Mine,” “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Paradise City,” and “Patience,” which is my favorite GnR song.
