In my last post I mentioned that my daughter had bought some more vinyl records. We bought her a record player for Christmas (see this
post), and she snaffled lots of my old records. I find it so strange that when she came home on Saturday three of the albums she had chosen were three I used to own.
Suzanne Vega “Solitude Standing”
I used to love Suzanne Vega as a melancholy teen, her voice is just really clear and fresh. I saw her in concert when I was about seventeen, with one of my bestest buddies, and she was amazing.
Billy Idol , “Vital Idol” – “White Wedding “, and “Hot In the City” ha, ha, this just makes me smile and remember happy teenage times.
Whitesnake, reminding me of trying to be a patchoulii wearing head-banger ( but I must have a weak neck – head banging no good for me!), and wearing this hand embroidered jacket which was aquired from an ex.
Guess who also now has this in her wardrobe and looks way better in it than I ever did?
and finally an album which I never owned – Stevie Nicks ” Bella Donna”, my daughters favourite song on this album is “Edge Of Seventeen” very apt… because she is.
A wall in her room – full of fashion and teenage inspiration, ” just like the white winged dove…”
wonder where life will take her?
