Looky, Looky…

…Who’s Turning 30?
(or who Turned 30 0n May 18th, and when this post was SUPPOSED to go up… Sorry. I realized that I didn’t ACTUALLY put it up…)

Yeah. That’s me. Today, actually! I know it’s been over a month since I made a post, but I just wanted to weigh in on this big year. Let’s see, in 1984, Footloose came out. The week I was born, “Hello”‘ by Lionel Richie was #1 on The Billboard’s Top 40. Ugh. Not really a fan. But as I look down the list, the Footloose Soundtrack pretty much made bank on the list.
