Ah, the 80's - they were so special...

Boy, oh boy - this brings back just the best of bestest memories. I am a true child of the 80's and so proud of it. I was (and still am!) a huge Duranie even before they released their first single (here for your pleasure) and it brings a smile to my face every time I hear this song. I go back to being a 13 year old again and all the excitement that came with it - do you know what I mean?

I was always totally in "love" with Simon Le Bon and was honestly devasted when he got married. I wanted to change my name to - wait for it ... Portia Le Bon! (We were reading Shakepeare at school - Merchant of Venice? - and I thought the Portia sounded so much more exotic than Lisa. And of course it "is"!)

I have wasted a whole Friday evening wading my way through You Tube bringing back those days of the early to mid eighties - nothing else really matches up for me. Japan - Quiet Life; Department S - Is Vic There?; Big Contry - Chance; and the ultimate: David Bowie - Ashes to Ashes, Fasion, Scary Monsters. The list could go on and on.

Anyway, enough rambling from me - let me know if you appreciate my choice of Friday night music...
