East End Boys, West End Girls

I’m in an 80s mood today; I’m listening to the title song even as I type.

The music I remember best (other than the absolute classics of the 60s) is the music I heard when I was a young adult — U2, REM, Prince, Tears for Fears, Culture Club, Pet Shop Boys, Michael Jackson, Level 42, A-Ha and so on.

It’s really odd, too, because this was probably the absolutely worst time in my life. One by one, my grandmother and parents died, my sister left with my nephew for Florida and I wound up in the most disastrous relationship of my life, one that still makes me cringe in shame when I think of it. But the music from that time resonates most strongly with me and despite all the bad, when things are really going wrong and I wish I had the ability to go back in time, knowing what I know now, and straighten out my life (not to mention doing all the things I regret not having taken a chance on) that’s where — or when — I want to be. Old enough to know better, I guess, although I apparently wasn’t the first time around. 🙂

My story’s really moving along. I went back and added a flashback (the other two had them) to the first segment and I’m really happy with it. Now I just need to write the last — and most important — part and I’ll be ready to let it cook for awhile. I’m going to go for a new record in waiting for the edit process, about 36 hours this time. Wish me luck!
