During the time, when this song played on the radio for the first time, I was a year away from my 18th birthday, and I was trying to think of a way to escape the small town, that I was forced to live in, when I was a child, who started out, living in a city.
I decided that this song, was kind of like my theme song, for getting out of the stix, and going into the unknown, never again returning, to live in my small home town.
I now live in a city, not the same city, that I started out in, but this city is way cooler, because I live close to the beach, and the weather is mostly warm here, compared to living up north, where the weather is extremely cold, during the winter months. Cold enough, that the town built a skating rink for us, to enjoy for at least, 4 to 5 months, out of the year.
In case you are wondering, I did try to ice skate, but my ankles, weren't made for that sport, so needless to say, I was no Dorothy Hamill, but I did, however master, a cool way of coming to a stop, when I did attempt to skate. I would just head for the closest wall ......... Yeah I know, T.M.I.
It's true, blonds really do have more fun.
Did you have a particular song, that you picked as a theme song, for a crucial life changing moment, in your life? If so, then what song & why?
