THE 1980s — Music Themes


Wonderful Willow chose the Music Theme for this week:

THE 1980s

Youngest son wanted me to use the MTV video, but it was (to me) gross.  The words are expressive enough.
T.V. DINNERS –1983 — Eliminator — ZZ Top — Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard
3min. 54sec.

Since Buffy Sainte Marie was mostly at home or in Europe during the 1980s, this song seems appropriate.
I’M GOING HOME — Buffy Sainte Marie

Heaven isn’t so far away as people say
I got a home high in my heart
Heaven is right where I come from; I never throw it away
I know the place and I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

See up there, it’s not the same
They know your name
And I’m not ashamed to need it I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

You keep on knocking but
I’m not coming out of this state I’m in
I’m travellin’ right, I’m gonna get there soon
I’m standing up praying, I’m singing
Saying Heyo ha ha heyo ha hey ya
I know the way and I’m going home.
I’m going home
I’m going home

That’s where the heart can rest
The best is there
And only a fool would leave it. I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

I been around, I been to town
Hey, where you think I learned right from wrong
And I’m going home
I’m going home

    TV dinners… These 80’s themes are making me all sentimental… Metallica is such a great choice. I think the theme for next week is great. I think I can even find an REM song to fit. Thank you, Bear. 🙂
