Tune in Tuesday is a weekly music feature hosted by Ginger at GReads. It’s a great way to share some tunes that you enjoy and to spread some music around the blogosphere. If you want to take part in this feature just put it up on your blog and share the link at GReads.
For July GReads asks the following:
What were you listening to when you were a teenager? We all come from different decades, with different tunes. For this month, please pick some of your favorite songs that bring you back to those glorious teenage years!
This week I have chosen 1985, which was the last of my teenage years. It was also the first year I flew across the Atlantic (landing in Chicago), not knowing that I would eventually live on this side of the pond! Other things that happened in 1985 were: I bought my first car, a yellow Vauxhall Chevette, and passed my driving test.
Here are some of my favourite tunes from 1985:
And She Was – Talking Heads
Kayleigh – Marillion
When Love Breaks Down – Prefab Sprout
In A Lifetime – Clannad and Bono
Alive and Kicking – Simple Minds
