Music Mantra Monday ~ Nothing Will Break My Stride

Okay, this is a total flashback to the '80s for me. And, I have to say, hilarious.

I was getting ready for bed tonight and my youngest sent me a text from upstairs (my bedroom is in the basement), which isn't unusual in this house. Anyway, this is sort of how it went:

SOPHIE: Last night I had the strangest dream.
ME: Did you kill someone or die?
SOPHIE: I sailed away to China.
ME: Hm. This sounds hauntingly familiar.
SOPHIE: In a little rowboat to find ya.
ME: ...oh geez...
SOPHIE: You said you had to get your laundry clean.
SOPHIE: Didn't want no one to hold you, what does that mean? You said...

Then did the bridge, which I will spare you from. But holy moly. THAT was so funny. I remember listening to that song on my clock radio while blow-drying my hair years ago! That's what I love about music. Generation after generation it comes back in the strangest ways. My kids are huge music fans. My oldest is into the music I listened to in high school (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins...you know. 'angry music'), the second oldest listens to everything from oldies but goodies to Metallica, Xander is the same and Sophie...well...she is a pop star.

But they ALL love the Beatles. I can withstand the 80's coming back as long as they never let go of the Fab Four. Plus, this song has the same meaning for me now as it did back in the day: I'll keep moving forward and nothing will stop me.

Go ahead and share some of your own classics (I don't consider the above selection a classic but it's fun to remember the decade it was popular in).
