Musical Monday

With the passing of John Hughes, I have been hearing lots of great 80's songs from his movies on the radio. If you were in high school in the 80's, or even junior high, you can't hear "Don't You Forget About Me" without flashing back. He picked great songs for his movies and so many of them really represent the 80's.

This song didn't get as much radio play as many others as it wasn't a theme song, butI just love it. It's I Go Crazy, by Flesh For Lulu, off of the Some Kind of Wonderful soundtrack.

I couldn't find the radio version, so skip ahead to about the 1:20 mark if you want to hear the song with out the looong intro that this version has.



For more Musical Monday go see Diane or Jori.

As a child of the 80's, I thought I'd heard them all, but that's a new one to me! Great song.

Happy Monday to you!

Well I am as old as dirt but I just loved all of the eighties "hair bands" My eldest son was in his teen years at that time, so I just grew to love that music. Wasn't Don't You Forget About Me also in the movie "Pretty In Pink"? I didn't make the connection from your lovely devotional blog that you were the same Mimi. I think you are terrific and strong, and yes I would love to come to Michigan and decorate your house. Just tell me when. When I am back in Toronto, I will just head west down the 401- ha ha. I once kept our deceased hamster in the freezer one winter, until the ground thawed for a proper burial.You are all right by me!
