I was driving home the other day and heard "mony-mony" (the Billy Idol version) on the radio. I was flooded with memories of my youth. There have been a couple of songs that really had an affect on me in my adolescence...this is one. Have you ever been so in love with a song? I admit, I tend to have obsessive tendencies, I will listen to songs over and over and over and over again. I wasn't that into Billy Idol (okay, so, that is a lie) but I loved how the song was sung. I believe I did a lip-sync dance to it w/another girlfriend at a "talent" show. The other song was "Power of Love" by Hewey Lewis and the News! I have a slightly ridiculous memory of my father calming me down after I heard "Power of Love" b/c I was overcome with feelings for Michael J.Fox. I had such a huge crush on him at the time.
Back to the Future had come out and that was one of my favorite movies. Now that I think about it, the list of songs that I freakish loved in my wonder years could go on. But these songs were definitely the top 2 songs (Power of Love being #1) that evoked overwhelming emotion in an awkward pre-teen.
