Helen has given us the companion word to last week’s “Boy” prompt, which for some reason I didn’t do. I know there are a ton of songs out there with that word in it but I just wasn’t feeling any of them (although the rest of the #SLS gang had no trouble and it was fun to listen to the songs they chose).
Anyway, today’s “Girl” seems so much easier and I had a lot of choices. I picked this one because it makes me want to get up and dance and because, well, you know…
Hot Girls In Love by Loverboy:
We’ve seen Loverboy a couple of times. Once was years ago at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk at one of their free Friday night concerts. You know how I love free!
When they sang this song and got to the line “Hot girls in love” the first time, Mike Reno held the mike over the crowd. I shouted it out and he pointed to me! That was pretty cool because we were standing at the railing across the sand from them so I didn’t think he’d be able to hear me. Here are some scrapbook pages from our concert album:
The next time we saw them was just this year at the Mountain Winery. They were there with Greg Kihn and Rick Springfield (I suppose I could have used Jessie’s Girl too for today’s prompt.)
Here’s what I was able to capture that night. Not the whole song but almost.
And the original.
The guys look a little older now but they still can get the crowd rocking!
Thanks again to Helen for coordinating this music party, even when she doesn’t always feel up to par. Be sure to check out some of the other participants.
