We arrived in South Africa yesterday morning and yes, the first thing I did was reach for my sunglasses. Is it just me or is the sun really hotter, brighter and bigger here in the southern hemisphere?
Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses At Night” is one of my favourite songs of all time and it was released in 1984 which was a massive year for me in terms of music. If I had to pick my favourite year for music it would be 1984 and some songs just take me right back to that time. Strangely enough, other big years were 1993 and 2002. I wonder if there is a pattern?
Wow. I can’t believe that this song didn’t chart in the UK. Perhaps that is because they would not have understood the reference to sunglasses and sunshine?
What was your favourite year for music and what songs really take you back to a specific place and time?
