My theme song: I Will Survive
Because of everything I’ve endured through my 58 years, this Gloria Gaynor classic could have been written for me. Plus, it’s an 80’s hit, a time when I was in my prime. Hee hee.
I can remember driving around at night with my friends ( remember when that was a thing? Gas cost, like $0.65 cents a gallon and we could actually DRIVE around and not worry about wasting money!) and blasting the radio so we could commit all the songs we loved to memory. I WILL SURVIVE was a major hit in 1978, the year I graduated from High school and started College. It was the year I moved out of my parents home forever, asserted my total independence from them, and started supporting myself financially. It was the year of big hair, platform shoes, the first minting of the Susan B. Anthony coin release, and the release of GREASE, the really last great movie musical – in my opinion.
Happy Days and Charlies Angels ruled the tv watching universe, and the first test tube baby was born in England.
Jimmy Carter was our President, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and Elizabeth Windsor sat on the throne in England. She still does!
1978 was a really good year for me. And, apparently, the world.
