...for a different kind of girl

silent surburban girl releasing her voice, not yet knowing what all she wants to say about her life and the things that make it spin. do you have to be 18 to be here? you'll know when i know.

all perfect light and promises

In the event that my life ever requires a soundtrack, I think this song pretty much sums it up for me of late. As the music starts, that would be me looking at the camera, shaking my head, muttering "It'll soon be over."

Then I'd probably dance. Because why not? Nothing better to do!

April - I spent the better part of 1989/1990 dancing to this song. I stopped a few times to finish writing some papers or whatever, but dance I did most!

Choppzs - The fact that he was (so was) a good looking guy just swayed me more into this talented ways!

Nan - Who shall lead our dance? Or shall we dance near each other? Around each other? Do I need to start saving more pop bottle redemption money for a stripper pole?

Um...I'm probably gonna do that last one anyway, so, you know, dont' be all shocked when the neighborhood starts to change and you see less of me, ok? I'll have important writhing around to do in my living room.

kimmyk - Oh, I wonder what memories this song prompts! I have many, some not even prompted by this song, but appropriately worded. Do share!

Stacie - I, personally, fell hard for this band of boys. I'll deny this, but there may have been poster kissing and fake make outs with objects meant to represent the dearly departed Michael H. Hard, I tell 'ya. Share if you wish, too!

RS - As long as I don't have to leave my friends behind, mister. Or maybe they just wanna stand behind, out of the way, while I do dance. Either way? It's a party!

Nocturnal - And gorgeous. You forgot to mention how utterly dead sexy he was! Beats that dude from Midnight Oil, at any rate!

I heard this the other day on the Retro Lunch and thought of you bopping along in the minivan. I'm telling you, you HAVE to rent their concert at Wembley (from like 93 I think) and watch the crowd bouncing in unison when they play this song. Goosebumps, I tell you!

J - Sigh...Who would have thought the day would ever come that this song would be entrenched in a "retro lunch" set. I own that concert DVD and love it, but I swear after reading your comment, I immediately clicked over to YouTube and watched it just to see it again. The way he prowls as stage? So hella hot...
