Music Mundays ♦ Track 4

After taking part in the Bloggiesta over the weekend, I’m so tired out that this week’s Music Mundays post is gonna be a really easy one!

Last week our oldest son went to his first grad formal – it was extremely exciting and a little scary! But we made it with no problems and got about a million photos on the way.

So for today, I thought I would show-off some pics of my handsome son and his gorgeous girlfriend – the two of them clean up pretty nicely ;) And as musical accompaniment I included some of my favorite songs that go with some of those 80’s teen movies that I’m so terribly addicted to.


They started out the evening looking quite happy … even with 4 cameras flashing in their eyes!
The Movie
Pretty In Pink
1986

The Song
If You Leave
OMD
Still smiling but after half an hour, they are just about ready to head out.
The Movie
The Breakfast Club
1985

The Song
Don’t You (Forget About Me)
Simple Minds
  Now they think if they get in the car we will stop taking photos …
The Movie
Heathers
1989

The Song
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Nirvana

*This song wasn’t in the original movie but it fits the clip perfectly!*
But we hustled them out of the car in order to take some nice outdoorsy shots :)
The Movie
Less Than Zero
1987

The Song
Hazy Shade Of Winter
The Bangles

Such proud moments, I wish I could go back a year and appreciate my son's day. I was so stressed that I don't remember much :D
My song I would choose for my son would be The Pretenders "I'll Stand By You".
I love those 80's movies too, I'm a sucker for The Breakfast Club and can't count how many times I've watched it :D

Aww, they are such a cute couple!

So many things to say! First of all--no way you're old enough to have mothered that boy! :P

Second, my FAVORITE part of Pretty in Pink is when Ducky is in the record shop singing Try a Little Tenderness by Otis Redding. I squeel everytime that song pops up on my ipod.

Third, LOOOOOOOVE Heathers. Honestly, I just get excited when someone else knows what the heck I'm talking about--why hasn't anyone else seen that movie??
