Poison - Every Rose Has Its Thorn

For your Friday afternoon entertainment (because I can't think of anything to blog about.)

I used to have boy/girl parties at my house in junior high. We'd take over my parents dining room, eat pizza, and slow dance to this song. Over and over and over. We had a very limited selection of music, particularly slow songs. This song made the girls melt but somehow was also cool/masculine enough to get the boys out on the dance floor.(Thanks MB for the use of your tape all those many years ago!)

As I write this, a little of that good ol' teenage angst is creeping back into my soul. There's nostalgia, and then there's nausea. It's a very fine line between the two.

Aside: I'd like to point out how similar their hats are to those worn by Debbie Gibson in the same era. Mayhaps I need to check Youtube for a little Shake Your Love or Lost In Your Eyes.

If you are going to put music from your boy/girl Jr High parties What about Chicago's Look Away??? That song was a big hit back then and I think we played it at every party! I can even remeper who used to dance to it whenever i hear that song.
