I am only 30, so my era is a mix of the 80's and 90's. That was my time, tight rolled jeans, high tops and New Kids on The Block. (My favorite was Jordan Knight, and yes I was a member of their fan club.)
Recently, when I sing clips of a song, my friend who is 6 years younger than I am, looks at me with blank stares. A few examples were Monica's "Just One of Them Days" and Seal's "Crazy". I think I felt my hair turning gray on the spot.
Here is the video, that's right, this is my jam!
Then, a few co - workers and I started to talk about movies. As we were stating the movies we loved growing up, it was only met with blank stares and curiosity from the "young-uns". You would think a 6 year age gap doesn't seem enough to create such a difference in what we did/watched growing up. Although, when I was a senior in high school they were only in 7th grade. Sigh...
|This is pretty much how I felt with them.|
Here are some movies that I loved growing up that will be lost on the new generation. These are must see movies if you haven't already seen them. There are many more, but these are the highlights.
The Princess Bride
Blazing Saddles - Side note, I basically love anything Mel Brooks does.
Batteries Not Included
Flight of the Navigator
Never Ending Story
Like I said, this is just a small sampling. I might have to do a blog about the awesome music I grew up on. Today's music ain't got nothing on Paula, Janet and Boyz II Men.
What were some of your favorite movies growing up?
