Just another reason why I love Twitter. And the 80s

As I wrote about earlier El has been playing around with the little keyboard we have and one of the songs she learned was a very popuar one in the 80s.

She wanted to know the name of the song but I couldn't remember.

We tried Shazam but that doesn't work if you can only hum or sing the song.

I could't find a recording of it without knowing the name so, I asked on Twitter.

But how do you 'sing' a song that has no words on Twitter?

So I typed this:

And then started laughing because who would possibly be able to get that?

Well, my friend @Busymom did and she replied...

And she was totally right!

And then we looked it up on YouTube and El said,

"That song was made in the 80s?!?!?"

and I proudly said,

"Of course".

And she frowned and said,


"But it's such a cool song!"

Whatever punk. You're all punks. The 80s rocked and you missed it.

Forever defending my decade,

Janine

Too funny. We actually had a cat that we named Axel after that character. My brother picked the name for the cat because he was black and had an attitude, just like Eddie Murphy in the movie.

LOL! That is SO funny. And also why I love Twitter. People who are sleeping on Twitter are totally missing out.

And I agree about the 80's ROCKING. In fact, my daughter was an "80's girl" for Halloween. She liked the fluorescent colors of the costume. She had no idea about the awesomeness of the 80's.

Oh, did you see Jill's post? http://www.scarymommy.com/1980s-sequels/
