<3333 Geniuses of songwriting
I call them...sky blue, teal, moonstone, and grey. It could have a lot to do with my current obsession with Heathers, and Veronica's unfettered affection for anything blue, but I can't stop thinking about these colors. It should be said, too, that the film was released in 1989.
So these two bands I find last night are The Ocean Blue and The Sundays, who released their debut albums in 1989 and 1990, respectively. So combine the Ocean Blue's jangely airy 80s rock sound, the fact that their album came out in 1989, with my blue color set and it creates a trifecta of 80s time and space, truely taking me back and giving me the most incredible view of 1989 I have ever seen. Team this with The Sundays softgaze sound (also with the jangley guitars and vocal), and I've got myself a legit 80s color set. Imagine: Its a breezy, sparkling day in 1989, you've got a pair of jet black raybans on, shielding your eyes from the sun, you've got a sky blue shirt on, moonstone jeans, grey shoes, and under the teal sky you're listening to "You're not the only one I know" by the Sundays or "Between something and nothing" by the Ocean Blue, and you've got nothing on your mind but how good the song is. I'm pretty sure that's how 1989 was. Sure, I was only about 4 months old in the summer of 89, but I can still dream!
So whats in a color? or a color set? Are there years? Songs? What came first, the color set or the music? Whatever the case, 1989 just got a lot more beautiful, too bad I don't even remember any of the time that I actually spent in it! Aye aye aye!
5. October Sky: This is my small town 50s life DREAM. Where a young guy like myself can do something extraordinary if he just sets his mind to it...as long as he has a good music montage behind him of course. He can do all of this while still growing up and experiencing everything great about living in a small town. Sure I might have to work in a mine for a little bit, but why not? The days must go on forever there, and time is all I want right now.
4. Urban Legend: A world where urban legends actually happen and college girls still wear maroon lipstick and listen to chick rock? Felicity with murder?! YES! Plus I want to know Joshua Jackson.
