This is the earliest song I remember loving, I remember when it would come on the radio, I would say "It's my song!!" lol:

(ironically, it does go on to describe my then future lovelife all too well. :cry: )

Later on, this was my favorite song, and the album it's on is the first CD I ever got:

Most embarrassing so far. I had a dog named "Brandy." I used to sing this to her changing "Mandy" to "Brandy." Geez, I was weird. :lol: I really miss that dog.



Well...there IS a song called "Brandy".

According to my parents this was a favourite of mine when I was very young.

A song about some dude standing on a corner ogling girls would not be played today.

This is the very first song that I took a keen interest. It was 1983 and I was 8. I started out my life of a music fan as a Kinks Fan.

Super embarrassing! My friends sang this to me because my nickname rhymes with Mickey. It didn’t fit that well because I wasn’t “fine.” I was going through my awkward phase which never went away.



Oh Mickey, you're so fine
You're so fine, you blow my mind
Hey Mickey, hey Mickey
Oh Mickey, you're so fine
You're so fine, you blow my mind
Hey Mickey, hey Mickey

I dont remember that from the original era it came out (the early sixties?), but I do remember hearing it on oldies stations in the 80s.

Had an uncle who used to rock out to George Thorogood a lot. This song reminds me of being at his place...sitting on a bear skin rug with that giant dog they had, Sedric (aka Seddie). That dog was great.

Off Topic
My local New wave station played the Thompson Twins a lot. Alannah Currie the lead singer was my '80s crush. As it turns out she was born the exact same day as me.

She has had an interesting post music career. According to Wikipedia "In 2004 she returned to London where she works under the name Miss Pokeno and makes art that fuses "joyful dissent" with disruptive and uncomfortable narratives. Her practice plays on the boundary between the humorous and threatening, as with the (semi-) mythological militant feminists The Sisters of Perpetual Resistance and the Armchair Destructivists. She has a studio in London called Doyce Street Studios Projects.

In 2022, her artwork was shown in London in a group show, Five Needle Five Wire, curated by Roxana Halls and Wendy Elia. Other artists included Sarah Maple, Adelaide Damoah, Wendy Elia, Roxana Halls, Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf, Marie-Anne Mancio, Annie Attridge, Carmen and Luisa, Vicki DaSilva, Farrah Riley Gray, Fiona Robinson, Tina True, Julie Umerle, Jessica Voorsanger and Chloe Wing"


Isn't she adorable :heart:
