"Forever young" should ring a bell to the child of the 80's in u and clubbing in Tana back then

Welcome to the musical hour of the week: I caught a preview of the OC yesterday before "House" and the background music was "Forever Young" by Alphaville. 2 quick comments : 1) The "OC" is a blatant rip-off of "Beverly Hills 90210" tv show that was very popular back in Madagascar in the early 90's ( Dylan, Brenda and David rapping ...hilarious) 2) My sister, Sandy and Daody who I hold responsible for my odd taste in music, must be reminescing their wild days in "Hi-Fi" or "Caveau" night-clubs of Tana. Remember when people were still slow-dancing in night-clubs ? Now, it would feel awkward right ? Boy, we don't get any younger and I kind of miss those days especially because I would look like a total fool trying to "drop it like it's hot" !
Feel free to rip your gray hairs off right now. Here is a sample of the song for those with short memories.
Have a great week-end ..still !

  3. Lova,

    I'm so affected when I think of these old happy days :-)

    When the song "forever young" was at the top of the hitlist, I sang it without taking much care of the lyrics. When I heard it a few moment ago, I realize what Gold (the singer of the group) said and I agree "It's so hard to get old without a cause
    I don't want to perish like a fading horse !!!!!!"
