Olivia Newton John is a legend in music. She gave the world some music that transcended genres. She died today at age 73. She was one of my dad’s favorites and mine too.
MTV is an American cable channel that launched on August 1, 1981.
The fact it’s been 41 years ago makes me feel a certain way. I’m going to say it was better back in my day when it was about music videos and culture. Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Madonna, Van Halen, Duran Duran, Whitney Houston, Pat Benatar, and so many more influenced the hearts and minds of so many youths.
Happy Birthday, MTV.
This video harkens back to the 1980s when the music was awesome. New Kids On The Block, EnVogue, Salt-N-Pepa, and Rick Astley are portraying some other iconic groups from the era. Check it out, it’s awesome.
What a beautiful, powerful, and tragic musical. This story is about surviving every day, being yourself, the AIDS/HIV, and mostly about love is timeless. The cast is super talented most of whom were in the Broadway production. A must-see for everyone.
Also, the world would be better if we could sing and dance spontaneously like in a musical. Maybe that would solve a lot of problems.
So true, funny how it seems. Always in time, but never in line for dreams.True from Spandau Ballet

Eddie Van Halen the guitar “god” that was a vital part of the hard rock scene for years died today. He was so talented and influential. His works will live on in memory. Thanks for the music and memories Eddie.
