Monday's Music Moves Me...Oh Those High School Days 3/30/15 #MondaysMusicMovesMe #music

Hello and welcome to the last Monday of the month. We are just moving on in this year at a fast pace. Unreal. However, I am taking the days as they come and enjoying the ride.

Today being music day, we have a theme this week. It is music that would have been played when you were 16.

As I was an '80s teen, this should be fairly easy.
I would have hit 16 around 1984.

Doesn't he look like he is trying to steal my watch? 

This first song was from the Pop group The Pointer Sisters. We were certainly "jumping" in the 80's and they were too when the did a band make-over.  

Next: As this was the year I found my first boyfriend. Almost all love songs were where it was at for me. This popular singer made several albums during the 80's and this was one that stood out in 1984.

Next: This was the first year I went to Prom. (Yes, that is me up there, all of 16 years old!) I was so excited. The theme for that year was of course taken from a song...Almost Paradise.  The movie, Footloose was very popular at the time.
For me, life as Almost Paradise in so many ways.

Finally: I was a huge Michael Jackson fan throughout the 80's but I was also a fan of this singer. In fact, I had a huge poster of him on my ceiling in my room. LOL  He had several hits including this one in 1984 which turned into a movie. (Just an FYI-to even find a video of Prince is amazing as a few years ago he sued YouTube for infringement rights.)

Well, that is it folks. Make sure to link up and I also ask you to come back everyday in April as I attempt the A-Z challenge. There will be music, quotes, and thoughts. ~Naila Moon
