How Much Do You Know About 80s Music?

You Scored 100% Correct


You are an 80s expert,
You never confuse New Order with the Pet Shop Boys.
You know which classical musician Falco rocked.
When it comes to 80s music, you Just Can't Get Enough!

Oh, yes! That photo above was from the music video of "Take On Me" by A-ha!

Amazing that I happened to score 100 percent in this blog quiz :) I must've guessed the right answers as there is still much for me to know and pay attention to about the 80s music. I remember all I did back then was listen to the leading FM radio stations and made a mental note of the singers and groups who sang the songs. The rest of the trivia I know was possibly gotten from the Jingle songhits I regularly read for entertainment.

I wonder, how do you score in this blog quiz? Share your results as a comment! :)

Photo Memories From 1980


Photo was taken one Sunday morning after church. That's our group photo, the dormitory girls of Saint Louis School Of Campo Filipino, Baguio City. Mixed ages all of us from age 8 to 16. And what a group we are, especially during the weekends. You'll find me here in an awkward pose, if I was posing at all, I was blinded by the sun's rays. That's me in the first row, second from the left.. ha-ha! I was wearing all white dress and .. rubber shoes.

The following photos below are a few I got from my fellow dormmates facebook pages. I am not there in those outdoor visits usually during weekends but I sure went to plenty of those during my stay there. There is an elder lady in those photos, that's Sister Angele De Smet, a Belgian nun who took care of us dormitory girls.

Music Monday - How Do You Keep The Music Playing


With many love songs I heard, How Do You Keep The Music Playing is one of my best-loved from the 80s. It's so beautiful and romantic, leaves the listener love-inspired. I hope you like it too, happy MM!

How Do You Keep The Music Playing
by James Ingram and Patti Austin

How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading
too fast?

How do you lose yourself to someone
and never lose your way?
How do you not run out of new things
to say?

And since you know we're always changing
How can it be the same?

And tell me how year after year
You're sure your heart won't fall apart
Each time you hear his name?

I know the way I feel for you is now or never
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
That in your eyes I may not see forever, forever

If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it grows
With any luck than I suppose
The music never ends

I know (how do you keep the music playing)
the way I feel for you is now or never (how do you make it last)
The more I love the more that I'm afraid
(how do you keep the song from fading)
That in your eyes I may not see forever
(Keep the song from fading)
Forever

If we can be the best of lovers
yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it goes
With any luck than I suppose
The music never ends

Skywatch Friday #1 - Feels Like Summer

Took these photos at Bamboo Grove Resort in Mangaldan, Pangasinan on a splendid day outdoor with the tweens from our Children's Ministry last December. The weather was so lovely and I felt inspired to take photos of the sky on so many angles. Scenes like these make me nostalgic - from the scents, the weather, even the candy from the candy store - remind me of the 80s when I would frequent the beach resort with my friends at a nearby town. Happy Skywatch Friday!

Music Monday - Nothings Gonna Stop Us By MYMP


Welcome to my new blog! It's still under construction for my 80's theme that I surely hope to fulfill all my goals for this week. I just feel so positive and inspired this Monday morning that I can't help it... really nothing is gonna stop me :)) I'm featuring this song from the MYMP rendition. This song is a classic for me. It brings me back to my highschool movie review report in 1987 on Mannequin starred by Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattral. Enjoy the great tunes this Music Monday. Happy MM, everyone!

Presenting "A Day In Life" my series of texts from my journals that I kept between the ages of 14 and 17. I'll be adding new entries every now and then to share all my thoughts, ideas,events, experiences, memories, ideas I had during the eighties. It is for my continued amusement that I read and reread my old journals, even when there isn't much content, I still gain occasional insight how I'm still in the process of changing to maturity. Most of the names have been changed to protect the people I recently found on Facebook. A few are just partial entries, my bleeping and blinding exclamations have been removed and some entries have been modified to give way to my now correct spelling and grammar. Yet the mix of excitement, melodrama and pleasant memories from the eighties are still much felt :)I hope, as you read my old journal with me, you enjoy the same sentiments.
