Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “high/low.” Use one, use both, bonus points for starting and finishing with one or both. Have fun!
Way back in the 1980s, I was a fan of A-Ha. Not because of the Pretty Boy image or unique partially animated video for Take On Me of the time, but the harmonies on their 1985 debut album Hunting High and Low.
I had it on cassette and wore out my copy in the car listening to it continuously, especially turning up the volume for The Sun Always Shines on TV, the first track on side 2.
Those were the days when music was music, not obscene shouting over a bungalow beat (all one level, nothing on top). I used to sing along, remembering all the words.
These days, they are all classed as golden oldies, and the younger generation seem surprised when I can still sing along, knowing all the words on ‘new releases’, as I remember them from the first time round!
For SoCS, am I allowed to add images? The writing was all in one hit though, so I hope I haven’t broken the rules!
