Angsty 80's songs, from the soundtrack of my life, is my theme for the A-Z challenge this year.
I was first introduced to this song as a freshman in college. I was immediately taken in, and overcome, by the story it told. I nearly cried just now as I heard the first few bars play when I found the video. Remembering those cream paint colored cinder block walls of our dorm rooms, the tissues we went through pining over our teenage romances gone wrong, as well as the ones we were struggling to keep intact. The song was a reminder of how the sweetest love could go wrong, and how crushing it would feel if that happened.
I can't even pick out a few lines, as you need the whole package! Enjoy...
