Tonight we were looking for something to watch on TV and considering it was Friday night the choice was dire, or maybe it was because it was Friday night it was dire. Anyway, we ended up watching an epsiode of Top of the Pops from 1989 and the last song was Eternal Flame by The Bangles. Music wise I don’t think 1989 was a great year but I’ve always loved this one. So I thought I’d put it on here. What do you think?
When I think of any year I always calculate how old my kids were then and in 1989 they were two and three, so that’s maybe why some of the other songs in this episode had gone straight past me. I was just too busy and too tired probably to pay much attention to what was going on in the music scene. But this one stayed with me.
It also reminded me of Gilmore Girls, I loved that programme. Rori took her friend Paris to a Bangles concert and she had never been to anything like that before – she really liked that band!
