I LOVED this performance back in 1985. Sheila E. on the American Music Awards. Ahhh. Nice. A little blast from the past.
I know that I am old now because I know for certain that 1985 was one of the best musical years EVER and it was the year I graduated from high school. That is the beginning of the end, isn't it? When you know your music is the BEST music? I think I'm willing to say that music was great from the mid-60s through the mid-90s and then I had a rapid drop-off from popular music.
But 1985. Yum. Great year. Prince's "Purple Rain", Madonna, Wham, Culture Club, Duran Duran and yes, my secret (or not-so-secret back then) crush on Rick Springfield. I'm sure there are more to be listed, but I can't reel them off from memory anymore. Hee hee.
See - here are some #1 songs from 1985. Who knew I would find this?
