Today’s prompt was “Songs of days gone by.” For me the only song that pops into my head when I think of my childhood is Footloose!
Summer of 1984, I was between 4th and 5th grade, 10 and half years old. I saw the movie Footloose at the Gem Theater in Beaverton, Michigan. I instantly fell in LOVE with the song Footloose. I was glued to the radio learning the lyrics and singing to the top of my lungs while I danced around the house.
Even 28 years later when I hear the first drum beats of this song I get big smile on my face and it makes me want to dance around. I even have it as my ringtone! I call it my happy song!
