I’m a child of the 80s, which means I had records, and then cassettes. I much prefer paying 99 cents now for one song, instead of a whole record/cassette or CD. But before that we had 45s (records). One song on each side. Of course we only listened to the one side, cause the B side was usually some little known song.
So here are a few of the 45s I had.
Eye of the Tiger by Survivor – I wasn’t really a Rocky fan, but who could forget this awesome song? Not me, obviously. Just recently we saw Survivor in concert, and they have a lot of terrific songs, but this is the best known to me.
Come on Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners – I don’t know if DMR had any other songs, but this one was pretty cool. Hard to dance to, but a good song.
Mickey by Toni Basil – Oh Mickey, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind. Hey, Mickey! Hey, Mickey! Now this one was a fun one to dance to, and I think this was a one hit wonder, but I could be wrong.
Abracadabra by Steve Miller Band – Love the SMB. Lots of awesome songs. I think this 45 actually belonged to my brother, but I listened to it often too.
So did you grow up in the age of records? Have any 45s? What were your faves?
