Today, the First Lady turns one year old. There will be an entire post tomorrow dedicated to the little baby that changed my life for the better. But today, we are looking at songs that remind us of “childhood.”

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.


Something Old

Artist: Ray Parker, Jr.
Title: Ghostbusters
Side Note: If you want to hear runners around you laugh, say “I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts. Who you gonna call?” I’m also willing to bet that someone screams “Ghostbusters!”
Quotable: “Don’t cross the streams.” — Yes, I went with a movie quote. Had to.


Something Current

Artist: Kylie Minogue
Title: Locomotion
Side Note: KM gets here because she just released an album this year. Her song Timebomb wants to be here, but she will forever be the girl who said…
Quotable: “Everybody’s doin’ a brand new dance now (Come on baby do the loco-motion)”


Something to Consider

Artist: Huey Lewis & the News
Title: The Power of Love
Side Note: We have to blame my dad for this… another option here would be “The Heart of Rock & Roll.”  — but Back to the Future gives this a boost of 1.21 gigawatts. This song is synonymous with the movie, so I included a version with NOTHING BUT Back to the Future clips… you’re welcome.
Quotable: “That’s the power of love.”

There you have it. Did you think a Thursday was going to go by without me sharing my music? THIS may have been tough, but it won’t stop me.
