After all the scary, horrifying murders this week, I think we all need a laugh, or a flashback to times of innocence
. At some point this week, for some reason I was having a conversation with someone and in the course of the conversation they said three or four words straight from a Sheena Easton song. So, I finished the lyric so to speak. I thought they had said it because they knew the song, but it turns out it was just a random grouping of words. In fact, they didn't even know who the hell Sheena Easton was. Never heard of her. Finally they admitted that maybe they remembered the For Your Eyes Only song.
Sheena Easton was like the Scottish Madonna. I really don't know how else to categorize her. I loved her though and it sucks that people don't remember her, especially considering that she was always in the tabloids. I think she was paired up with Don Johnson, Prince, and some others that escape me now.
Then, in another conversation with a completely different person yesterday they admitted they had just discovered a band they were hearing about for the very first time. A band called Pink Floyd. I know, I know, but it is completely f**king true. That's why I had the song reference today, because that conversation got me in the mood last night.
So, anyway, what I want from everyone today is the first record/CD you bought. If all of you say something critically acclaimed I will know you are lying. And, I want to know the first concert you went to as well. And yes, The Wiggles counts. And no, no one sees a Smiths concert first time out. I want things like Sugarhill Gang or Men At Work with Red Rider opening. Black Sabbath with some band you don't remember. Spill it all.
