One of the first records my parents bought for us was ABBA. Olivia Newton-John followed. Then it was Culture Club. Seeing Boy George in all his androgynous wonder when you’re 9 years old is a fantastic thing. I was fascinated by his make-up and thought he was just gorgeous. It was the 80s! Cyndi Lauper. Then Thriller. Ahhhh, what a time to be alive.
My sister and I would rush home to watch Video Hits on CBC (this was pre-Much Music being offered in every day cable packages). Seeing the songs come to life with video was amazing. Learning all the words and spinning those vinyl records endlessly became every day life.
