Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Memories Come With Music

So Friday night on "Don't Forget The Lyrics" whom else but Rick Springfield would make an appearance for a rocking eighties chic? Made sense to me and what better ICON for the eighties could you pick? He had some of the most outstanding songs in my memory. What girl didn't dream of Rick Springfield showing up to take you to the prom or even just to take you out. The past year of 2008 was about me reconnecting with a side of me I had almost forgotten existed. One that allowed myself to actually have fun. This past weekend was just an extension or continuation of that in that I hooked up with friends to play games and talk. I also went out and bought Rick Springfield's new album "Venice in Overdrive." I haven't come to an over all conclusion yet on whether I like the album or not. I do like the song "What's Victoria's Secret?" It didn't satisfy my need to walk down memory lane though so I pulled out my old greatest hits CD of his. I LOVE that CD. What can be better than someone that good looking sounding that good singing. Well I could think of a couple of things, but for now it will do. What also astonishes me is how good Rick Springfield looks now for his age. On his birthday this year he will be sixty years old. Some people just preserve very well I suppose because I know I wouldn't be kicking him out any time soon. Either way you feel, if you would like to check out some clips of music from Ricks new album, visit his website at www.rickspringfield.com
