Hi!  Paige here.  Remember when MTV first aired?  I do.  Remember the first video? (It is Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles… great to remember for Trivia night). Check out this list on Wikipedia of the first videos aired on MTV http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_music_videos_aired_on_MTV .  You are probably wondering where I am going with all of the MTV references.  Well, this week in Rosemary Beach, where our shop and studio are located, you have a chance to remember the 80’s all week long.  The MTV VJ Alan Hunter, one of the first 5 VJs on MTV, will be broadcasting his radio show,  Siruis XM’s 80’s on 8 http://www.sirius.com/80son8 , from Rosemary Beach, Florida.  It should be a fun week of music to remind you acid washed jean, big hair, Molly Ringwald, scrunchies, ET, The Cosby show, etc.  I am working on a play list for the shop and studio of 80’s music for the week.  It is fun to look back and remember the songs that I roller skated to with my best friend, Haiden, every Friday and Saturday night at the local roller rink donning knee socks and pig tails and later perms and VERY large bangs (sorry no photos of the bangs).  Every song I see on itunes bring backs more memories.   So far on my play list I have Chicago, The Bangles, Pat Benetar, REO Speedwagon, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, John Wait, Bon Jovi, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper,Boy George, Billy Joel, Wham, etc .  I could go on and on with the list but I will stop at some point.   What was your favorite song from the 80’s?

  1. Loved anything by The Police…also loved Phil Collins…reading the biography of Belinda Carlisle (The GoGo’s) right now for more fun 80’s memories…will never forget a Cyndi Lauper/Bangles concert I saw in Houston while in high school…some very interesting (might call them odd) people there! Ya’ll have a fun week…wish I were there!
