I have always loved music. From my first little green record player playing Donny Osmond albums, I have been obsessed with listening to music. Hopefully my Music Club is a chance for me to share songs that I love and hopefully help you discover new music or bring back amazing memories. Click here for my list to date.
When I was 14 I went down to Palm Springs with my aunt and uncle and cousin. I loved it. And I got to fly home on my own (I had a dance exam and I was already bad for taking off on holidays right before it!). These two gorgeous older men (they were probably all of 25 but I thought they were really old) sat beside me and I’m sure I completely embarrassed myself pretending I was older than I was. This song was huge at the time, so it always takes me back to Palm Springs.
One of my favourite all-time albums is Eagles Live. This song is on here plus the rest of my favourites. Still on my bucket list to see them live.
Another classic 80s song!! The video is awesome… has everything a stereotypical video from the 80s should have – big hair, bad perms, leather pants, storyline that totally doesn’t make sense, teenage girls taking off with the band members at the end. Perfection!
We saw them in concert this year (yep, they are still together) and they actually looked and sounded pretty much the same. Released 1983
This song comes from the Last Temptation of Christ soundtrack. You have to listen to the whole soundtrack to truly appreciate it, but this is my favourite track. I’m actually listening to it now as I write up my blog posts as I find it inspiring music to have playing.
I haven’t been able to find a video of Peter Gabriel performing it, but I do like this video by Francesco Albano Open Ensemble as they capture all the unique and haunting sounds.
Especially when it’s a long weekend! I don’t know if there is a radio station in Canada that doesn’t play this song on a Friday, but just in case you missed it, here you go. We went and saw them live last year. They were really good. Flash back to the 80s in Canada! Released 1981.
Watch the video… first two minutes is silly so might want to fast forward.Share this post!
