Love story 74 – ‘Daddy Cool’

Way back in the Inna days, Anthony’s mates used to come over and they’d crank up the stereo and listen to Bony M. Even though I would be in the house with Inna, we could both hear the music – loud and clear. She would grimace and I would grin. The following is a youtube of one favourite. It looks so funny now!

Love story 75 – ‘Staying alive

I’m not sure if my facts are right here but I think it was the BeeGees who made falsetto an okayish thing for male singers to do. This clip is, for me, hilarious, poignant and nostalgic and reminds me of when Anthony took me to the drive-in to see Saturday Night Fever. At the time, I was still a naive teenager so, while he sat behind the steering wheel drinking a beer or two, I sat primly next to him, alarmed by all of the f-words in the movie, for which (can you believe it?) Anthony kept apologizing for.

Staying alive.

[Note: For anyone reading these love story posts for the second time, since I had them in a separate blog, this is the last of those and, from now on, they will be new and hopefully fresh. Hope you get another laugh out of these two!]
