The 80s and 90s Ballads

There are lot of songs that make me smile, mostly are from the 80s and 90s. They remind me of my younger years, my naughtiness and all…doing opposite of what my parents taught me, sneaking for a date, cutting classes (yes, I did that too) and doing stupid mistakes but I learned a ton of things as well. I learned to be independent, responsible and hardworking.

I have this MP3 compilation of the 80s and 90s ballads and my favorite is More Than You’ll Ever Know by Michael Ruff.

So mellow for the week’s Girls Talk theme, huh? But it is perfect for Sunday Song. It is not the song per se but it’s the story behind that makes me smile, the years when I was young, happy and foolish. And now that my daughter will be on her tweens in just a few years, I want to walk in her shoes again that were once mine. By doing so, I know I will be able to understand her while experiencing this confusing stage of growing up and together we will listen to the 80s and 90s ballads. Oh yeah, she loves them too. 🙂

  1. i think the best music era is the 80’s… i love almost all the songs that came out during that time

    Have a great week ahead girl, here’s my funny song if you haven’t visited me yet

    Food and Passion

  2. kinilig naman ako dun. ahihi. grabe flashback ng aming senior prom. waaaaahh!! ang sweet ng boses ni ruff. love!

  3. Yes, there was a song Young and Foolish. Didn’t we all walk through the same phases in life when we rushed headlong where angels fear to tread? We were so eager to experience life that we stumbled many times. But each time that we got up, we learned valuable lessons in life. Yes, songs of yesteryears trigger the memories of our wild escapades of the past. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  4. I am remembering certain things with this song. Methink we are of the same age? Tumatanda na? LOL.

    Happy GT!

  7. Rossel, sa lahat ata ng dekada, itong 80’s ang pinaka. Lahat halos ng magagandang pangyayari ay nangyari sa dekadang ito, andyan ang people power na nagdala sa atin sa kalayaan bagaman at di pa mulat ang aking isipan nong mga panahon na yun, walang kamatayan na mga awitin noong dekadang yun, natatandaan ko ang song na yan high school ata tayo noon. kaysarap naman talagang balikan lahat, kung sana’y pwede pang bumalik ang kahapon at magbyahe muli patungo doon ay gagawin ko. kahit walang gadget noong mga panahon na yun ay di pa rin mapapantayan ang mga panahon na yun.

  8. I love 80’s music! I can’t wait to hear your songs.

    I wonder if you might be able to link up this post to my Sunday Song post this Sunday? It would be so good if you could join in!

    Best wishes,
