Breakdance 80s Memory


I was part of a 3-sometimes-4 man crew back in the mid-80s, and we'd "rehearse" on the stage found at the end of our school's canteen, hoping to impress the ladies ... I did the "Robot" (but never popped-n-locked), while another guy was fit enough to be an all-rounder, and the tallest guy in the crew's speciality was standing on his head … I can't speak for the other guys now, but I was a terribly sad "poseur" LOL ... we never did challenge anyone or performed enmass in public, besides our mucking about "rehearsals" hahahaha

Decade later, I just wished we took some photos of our hijinks and getup - a somewhat attempt at group harmony dressup but at the same time exuding individuality! I scribbled on my canvas shoes with fluorescent colors, and cut up my sports wrist band to use as a glove … now THAT would be for the history books! Flashback-Whiplash and facepalm-worthy memory-lane jaunts hahahahaha

*FLASHBACK-WHIPLAH*

BTW, the feels was more the video featured below, rather than the classic evergreen shown in above film hahahaha


Now, THIS was my jam LOL:

R.I.P. David Bowie (1947-2016)


My earliest memories of the late David Bowie begun with songs from his 1983 "Let's Dance" album. The 80s were a time when music became a conscious entity in my soundscape even though I have been told I had a very *musical childhood (*and by that it meant my maid constantly sang for me, so my parents said … and no, I never did lear to play any single musical instrument :p), and MTV helped kicked that notion deep into my consciousness too! My first Bowie was the "Let's Dance" MV actually!

Slowly but surely, other tracks on that album came into fore, with "China Girl", and very soon, I dug into his earlier discography, and followed his songs up and down thru the ages, without any particular need to discern "WHEN" they were released, because they could be devoured at any time, and tasted delicious!


Some of my fav songs from his 80s period are featured here today (others can be viewed/heard HERE on #tunestalk).

In time, more tunes flooded my soundscape, and different acts and musicians ebbed and tided thru my earphones …

You were a musical hero of my growing teenhood, and I thank you for inspiring me with your constant re-inventions of yourself, and regardless of guises and performing personas, the sounds of David Bowie would always remain eternal.

Rest In Peace, David Bowie.

My memories of local Radio DJs in Singapore during the 80s were not as "positively glowing", as I'd remember recording songs off the radio for my own "mixtape", and most DJs just talked into the song's beginning and ends, which left me with incomplete songs, and that made me selfishly irked by DJs, in general LOL
