Five for Friday: 5 Songs That Remind Me of My BFF

So this really needs to be a two parter, because I have a pair of besties.  This is post is specifically about five songs that remind me of Kasi.

Kasi and I met during our college years.    We were nearly instant friends.  I think it stems from the fact that we’re eerily similar in a lot of ways and for some reason we don’t get on each others nerves after a few minutes.  It’s odd.  She likes a lot  pretty much all of the same things I do.  Scary movies.  Check.  All things 80s. Check.  Things that are super nerdy (ie. science, reading, fantasy).  Check.  But probably the biggest thing over which we’ve bonded is music.  We make a point to see each other (she’s in NOLA and I’m in ATL) at least 2-3 times a year.  And the trips are always centered around music.  I head to Voodoo Fest every year.  We took a 311 cruise earlier this year.  And TODAY Kasi is on her way here for the 311 concert tomorrow!

So here they are, the 5 songs that remind me most of Kasi.  No matter where we are, if one of these songs comes on, life pauses for a few minutes.  Because all of the lyrics (and dance moves) must be performed!

Number 5: Dexy’s Midnight Runners- Come on Eileen

Number 4:  The Offspring- Bad Habit (specifically for the part at 2:31)

Number 3:  Vanilla Ice- Ice Ice Baby

Number 2:  House of Pain- Jump Around

Number 1:  311- Stealing Happy Hours

Honorable Mentions:

Anything by Duran Duran

About 100 more 311 songs

Big Country- In a Big Country

Simple Minds- Don’t You (Forget About Me)

Journey- Don’t Stop Believing

Michael Jackson- Billie Jean

…..and at least 20+ more 80’s songs.
