  1. 1988 was overshadowed by anything else as our city hosted the 88 Olympic Winter Games is likely when I get a smidgen of a recall when “Good Girls” didn’t openly listen to “hair bands”

    Those old gals are listening now — except @BrettMichaels bastardized any worthiness to artistic creative melodies that where a byproduct of the 80s, appreciated greatly to our millennial children who quite like the styles, the melodies that made us unique in our then 20s

    Thanks for your loyal support
