Today's Mewsic Monday doesn't have a theme and you can post what you want but we have decided to go with an alphabet theme for our own choices.
Today for us it's the letter A. Mum has picked these fab tunes from her past (mostly from her youthful 80s days).
ABBA -The EagleFrom 1978. This is one of Mum's fave ABBA songs and she was a big fan in the 70s and early 80s.
ADAM AND THE ANTS - Kings of the Wild FrontierFrom 1980, the time of the British New Romantic movement. Mum says it was great to be a teenager then because music was so exciting and fresh. She was too young to go the New Romantic clubs though.
From 1982. More strange hair and outfits, but Mum says it was fun!
A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS - I Ran
A-HA - The Sun Always Shines on TVFrom 1986. Like ABBA, A-HA are a band from Scandinavia, but from Norway, not Sweden.
1982. This British band were very popular during the early 80s.
ABC - The Look of Love
This is from 1964. before Mum was born but she says it's a classic.
THE ANIMALS - House of the Rising Sun
AURI - The Space BetweenMore recent times now (2017) This is the side project of Nightwish keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen, his wife Johanna Kurkela and Nightwish guitarist and pipe player Troy Donockley.
After compiling this post I realized that there's an animal theme running through Mum's choices as well as the A theme. She says it wasn't intentional. Such is her love of animals that it even comes out in her choice of music!
