80's Movie Meme - Some Kind Of Wonderful 1987




 Some  Kind Of Wonderful 1987 was one of the movies I watched in 1988 when it was shown on the local theaters in Manila. I was in first year college then at an all-girls school. A college friend recommended this movie to us, saying that "it was very touching" So I went to see the movie, I think - together with my "big sister" cousin Ate Edith, at the Quad Cinema in Makati. It sure was fun and romantic! :)



Some Kind Of Wonderful was another movie hit produced by John Hughes. Starred by  Eric Stoltz, Mary Stuart-Masterson, Lea Thompson, Craig Sheffer, Elias Koteas ( the punk friend of Watts), Chynna Phillips and  even the young Jane Elliot and Candace Cameron were in it!

There were some parts in the movie that I found quite challenging to do, like hanging out with the Class A group and still get better grades. As I watch the movie again, because I am now a parent, I love the father's zest to send his son off to college by encouraging him to save money aside for his college tuition. Quite smart move :)

Music Monday - Blue Kiss by Jane Wiedlin


Happy Monday, folks! Blue Kiss is my most endearing song from 1986. It's one I possibly can sing with my eyes closed because whenever it was played on the radio I would stop whatever I was doing and listen. And I love Jane Wiedlin's sweet voice, and that pixie haircut! :)

Blue Kiss

 A blue kiss coloring me goodbye
A new kiss could never feel so fine
Tomorrow I'll be livin in black and white
Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
When I kiss you
Now I color my world with a blue kiss
I've got kisses for you

Red lips kissin away my fears
A blue kiss bringin me back to tears
Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
Yea, these kisses are blue
Now I color my world with a blue kiss
I've got kisses for you

 edlin-blue-kiss-lyrics.html ]
A prism of love surrounded us
Don't you see what our hearts knew
How can you chose a one-color world
When you know that I've got a rainbow for you

Last night a spectrum filled the sky
This morning it shattered with your goodbye
Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
When I kiss you
Now I color my world with a blue kiss
I've got kisses for you

Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
When I kiss you
Now I color my world with a blue kiss
I've got kisses for you
Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
When I kiss you
Now I color my world with a blue kiss
I've got kisses for you
Why did it have to be such a blue kiss
Yea, those kisses were blue
Now I color my world with a blue kiss
I've got kisses for you

80's Movie Meme : Phenomena 1985 aka Creepers



I watched Phenomena in 1986 at the Quad Cinema in Makati City together with my cousin Ate Edith and niece Faye. This movie was shown in the cinemas just about the time (then) President Ferdinand Marcos declared a school break from January 28 up to February 9 to give way for the intense campaign for the 1986 snap elections. I was so happy to be in Manila that time, I have a long story for that too in my 80s diary, but haven't written an entry about that yet, ha! :D [What 80s diary, you must be asking.. get a few bits starting here]

 As I was saying, we were just as happy to watch this movie Phenomena (a.k.a. Creepers) starring Jennifer Connelly. The movie was our second choice to watch because the queue for the movie "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" starring Vilma Santos and Maricel Soriano was so long.Well, Phenomena was not so bad.  I felt a little bit interested in Biology/ Science after seeing this movie. And I admired Jennifer Connelly's aristocratic character here. Oh yeah, I really like this movie.. and I can still vividly remember the scene where we really screamed our guts out.. so be warned :) I love this movie also because of the memories that go with it. I hope you enjoy too!

Music Monday - Please Be Careful With My Heart (1989)


Please Be Careful With My Heart by Jose Mari Chan and Regine Velasquez was an OPM hit in 1989. I was in second year college back then; and me with my college friends - Rasha Garcia, Helen Pagal and Mina Gallardo - were frequent visitors at the local FM radio station DWID Dagupan to often request for this song.

This Youtube video came from the original music video. Thanks to dhimoet for sharing to us eighties followers. I love how Regine Velasquez looked here, this must be during her heydays at "Penthouse..Live!" together with Martin Nievera and Pops Fernandez. Until now, this song is a much-loved classic!

Cheers to those memories! Happy MM to all!

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.
