A special update to my blog today. Today my husband Frank and I celebrate our Pearl wedding anniversary, which is 30 years of marriage. Yes, we married in the decade of big hair, even bigger phones, shoulder pads, ruched up sleeves but some pretty awesome tunes!
To celebrate I am posting two special songs.
This first song was a big hit at the end of the year when we first met 1984. It was everywhere at the time and the lyrics say it all.
“Solid” by Ashford and Simpson reached number 3 in Nov 1984

This song was spending its first week at number 1 in the week we got married in 1987 and was to spend another three weeks at the top. It was the second biggest selling song of that year (behind Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”)
Like “Solid” this song has very appropriate lyrics. The video intercuts the group with footage from the rom-com film “Mannequin” which it was from.
