Saturday Night Retro

Saturday night.  Not such a relaxing one this week.  The forecast for horrendous storms has prompted Joshua's Boy Scout troop to cut short a camping trip, and Husband is on his way to get him.  I'm glad they are erring on the side of caution.

Tonight's Retro will be with a twist.  I'm featuring songs I didn't like when I was in high school.  Why?  No reason, just thought it might be fun.

First up is one of my all time least favorite songs from one of my all time least favorite frontmen for one of my least favorite bands.

Painful.  And more so if your name is Sharon, and you go by Sherri in high school.

Moving on... how about this gem.  The picture alone is criminal.

And a terrific suggestion from my sister.

She asked my brother in law to name the worst songs of the 80s and he said, "Most of them."  Hehe.

In order to make this blog post I had to listen to several versions of each of those songs, so I could pick the "best" one.  I deserve combat pay.

Let's end on a happier note.  Who remembers these?

Roller skate covers!!  These were huge when I was in early high school in Tennessee.  I've encountered very few people who have heard of them, though.   How about you?  Have you heard of them?  Did you have them?  Leave me a comment.

ETA:  Husband returned with Joshua, and asked me to include this late entry in the bad songs list.


  1. How could we forget Falco - Rock Me Amadeus

    1. Carla, when I was working on this post my sister said, "Well, you better not include Rock Me Amadeus, 'cause it rocks!"
