80s mania!!

Went out with Kenny, Bas and some of her friends on Friday night, to an 80s disco in Limerick, in a club called the Sin Bin. Had a fun night and did plenty of dancing — it makes so much difference in a club when you actually know the songs!!! I’ve fallen more and more out of touch with the music charts over the years. I still try and keep track of bands that I like, and try to listen to some new stuff too, but back in the 1980s and early 1990s I was far more in the loop than I am now. I used to hear or know just about everything back in those days, whether I liked it or not — I’d listen to the radio a lot, Top of the Pops, MTV and VH1 when we got satellite. Friday night brought all that back, the good, the bad and the ugly. Most of the people there were younger than me, so the best bit was knowing songs that nobody else did, such as The Safety Dance, form one-hit wonders Men Without Hats. I did the dance from the video and everyone thought I’d lost my mind!!! if you haven’t seen it, click here to be enlightened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcOZ6xFxJqg

I’ve been taking it easy the rest of the weekend, surfing the web, doing a bit of office work, visiting family, reading (Let The Right One In — a brilliant take on the vampire myths!!), listening via radio on the internet to Spurs grabbing a last-minute winner on Saturday to make it 4 wins out of 4 — unbelievable times at White Hart Lane!!! Soon I’m off to take part in a heritage walk on the road where I live — and the statues in my garden are to be part of the tour!! Strange days indeed, mama!!! Who knows, maybe I’ll finish off the walk by doing a little Safety Dance around the garden…
