My song choices this week are from the 80's and i feel strong connection to.
Simple Minds was one of my fave's and you probably remember the song "Dont you (Forget about Me)" from the movie Breakfast Club. That song is what catapulted them into fame. Dont get me wrong, i loved that song tons but what is on my mind is "Alive and Kicking".
The next is pretty mellow and it soothes my soul every time i listen to it. I have 4 Cd's of Cowboy Junkies. They are a band of siblings from Canada and that also hit their top fame during the late 80's. They didnt get started until '85. Margo is lead singer and her voice is so incredible. They did a remake/cover of Sweet Jane and its been used in a couple of movies too.
