Five on Friday - The (Nothing-to-Do-With-George-Orwell) 1984 Version


Every time I go back to Stockton I travel into my past and this trip is certainly no exception as my purpose of this journey was to visit my good friend Cyndi whom I firstmet when we were both employed by the City of Stockton as Emergency Telecommunicators at the Police Department.  Cyndi and I met during one of my training sessions in the Comm Center and from that first Friday night on it was like we had known each other for all of our lives.  Matter of fact, most people were surprised to find out that we had just met and hadn't known each other previously!  Some friends are just like that, though and they are truly blessings from above.

As Cyndi and I first met back in 1984, I thought I'd pick five songs from that year for this week's version of Five on Friday which is presented by Travis of Trav's Thoughts and which you could certainly join in on if you had five songs on a Friday that you wanted to share!

Oh, and just as an FYI for those who may not have seen it before, that last video is mine, mine, all mine!  I needed a video to use for "Thriller" and that one brings back happy memories of my time at the Asbury Park Zombie Walk wandering amid the shambling undead!

  2. ah, the '80s.. I'm listening to Genesis. I always liked this song. I haven't heard it in ages.

  3. A Santa Claus Zombie? Now that's just not right.

    Amanda is indeed the best of all.

  6. I have one friend like that - we met and felt as thought we'd known each other all our lives - it's special isn't it?

    Love YOUR video Linda.

  8. When Doves Cry and Purple Rain always brings to mind the artist once known as Prince then once known as a symbol and who is now back to Prince. Beautiful song and then a Christopher Cross song with that lovely guitar/piano background makes it a lovely week even when ending with zombies.

  9. What a great theme for a 5 on Fri! And of course, I'm very familiar with all of those songs because they were popular when I was in that 13-16 demographic that year. :) Great trip down memory lane.

  11. You know I love those boys from Birmingham! Thanks for including them in this week's five on Friday. Makes me feel young again. Then I start complaining about today's music and I'm reminded that I now sound like my mother did in 1984.

  12. Really loved this set, Linda - glad you're back spinning the tunes! When Doves Cry, That's All and Union of the Snake were tied as my favorites.
