The funny thing is, it wasn't even me that purchased my first CD online. It was my husband and he bought me Hunting High and Low by Aha for my birthday. I was excited and hesitant at the same time because I didn't want to not like the album if that makes any sense. Every fiber of my being was hoping that Aha wasn't the one hit wonders that VH1 had professed them to be. As it happens, they were wrong. Very wrong. Because if I listened to that album once in a day I listened to it a hundred times. That was it, I was hooked. From then on I searched Amazon, E-bay, Half.Com and who ever declared they had the music I was looking for. The Cure, The Smiths, Echo and the Bunnymen, etc. I was in heaven. And with the sudden resurgence of 80's music due to the VH1 show Bands Reunited, it was a lot easier to find them here in the states too. You would be surprised how many closet Kajagoogoo lovers there are out there.
I have no idea how many CD's of 80s music I have at last count. Some one actually gave me a DVD of 1,000 best songs of the 80's one year for my birthday. So apparently they have a bigger collection than I do, which I think is really awesome. And you know what? I'm always finding new bands and songs, that I had no idea even existed during that time. I love finding new/old music.
Well that's my story. Now you know why I started this page and the blog. Everything else after this will be just history retelling itself. Lots of trivia and fun facts.
And before anyone asks, I have nothing against the 80s music that was made here in the US. Heck, we gave the 80s some of the best music ever! In fact I plan on doing a special blog just on Hair Bands. I know, you just can't wait. :)
Ciao for Now ;)
