I heard this song on the radio this morning and had major flashbacks. I am such a product of the 80’s. I attended a small college in Northern California, Chico State, from81-85. And I had a blast. This song was released in 1983 or 84 and those were particular favorite years of mine. I started tending bar at The Oasis Bar and Grill in June of 1984 and the fun just kept happening.
Two of my roommates also tended bar there and it got to the point that the boss wouldn’t assign schedules, because he knew that one of us would show up to cover it and he didn’t care who it was. Often it was whoever was the least hungover… sometimes it was just whoever had made it home by the time the shift started. Those were good times.
The summer of 1984 consisted of tending bar during the morning, tubing on the Sacramento River during the afternoon and partying all night, only to get up and do it again. Oh to be young and irresponsible again.
I’d like to hear from anyone who might read this. Do you have a favorite time in your life? What was it and why was it so wonderful?
