Some days, I am hungry like the wolf to go back to that pre-parent period of my life, when I had time to go to concerts. Although I have never been a girl on film or experienced a union of the snake or had Big Hair of the above variety (nor have I ever been a man), I would like to know if there is anyone out there who feels the same? Please, please tell me now—is there something I should know?
OK, peoples: One guess as to which concert I am seeing tonight.
Ding-ding-ding! Yep, I've been gifted some Duran Duran tickets. (And if you said "Wham!" you sniffed way too much hairspray back in the day.) The group is on their All You Need Is Now North American tour through October. Tonight, Dave and I are going to the Madison Square Garden concert, and I am psyched.
The Notorious boys (the original ones)
Duran Duran is one of my all-time favorite groups from my teen years. They were MTV, back when MTV used to only run music videos (as in, when it used to be good). The group's 13th album, All You Need Is Now, came out last December. Check out the lead single: It's their original sound, the one that made them big. (Dave, stop reading now.) My Simon Le Bon crush has returned.
Dave and I have seen a few good concerts in recent years—The Who, The Dead, John Fogerty, Norah Jones—but we don't go to ones anywhere near as often as we used to. You can bet I'll be singing my head off tonight. (Don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after.)
I must stop now or one of you might reflex me to death.
Got fond memories of Duran Duran? What music most reminds you of your teen years?
