Captain Ninja, Alex J. Cavanaugh
is hosting a First Love Blogfest today so head on over and check it out! Link up and tell us about your first music love, first book love, first music love and first person love.
First Movie Love
Would have to be The NeverEnding Story - Through a book, Bastian finds himself in Fantasia. Fantasia is facing oblivion from an enemy known as The Nothing. The Empress chooses Atreyu, to save their world.
First Music Love
From the first music cassette I owned, the song Thriller. I can still recall parts of the dance.
- Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block. We're talking obsessed - my walls and ceilings were littered with posters, t-shirts, magazine... I even wrote a few letters to the fan club! It ended with Joey when he didn't write me back, and Leonardo DiCaprio started on Growing Pains.
First Book Love
I was in third grade, when Santa gave me Dracula. It was the kid's version of the classic, but to me it was a thick hard covered novel. I struggled with a few of the bigger words (underlining them in pencil to either ask my mother about, or look up in the dictionary) but I loved it, and have read Dracula half a dozen times since.
Oh my gawd, New Kids on the Block.. you must be about my little sister's age because she loved those guys, too. And Thriller? YES! What a cool, cool song and music video that was! I love the way it was redone in that Jennifer Garner movie where she wakes up and she's 30... so much fun!ReplyDelete
13 going on 30 - I'm 30ish going on 13!Delete
Thriller was cool.. New Kids? You are a young chick aren't you?ReplyDelete
not that young... 34Delete
Dracula for Christmas? Guess that's not as bad as my husband giving me Carpenter's Prince of Darkness for Christmas. LOLReplyDelete
Carpenter's Prince of Darkness- wish my husband thought of thatDelete
Joey didn't return your letters? The jerk!ReplyDelete
Thanks for participating in my blogfest.
I guess you could say he was my first heart break too :(Delete
NKOTB rock it bak then. And NeverEnding Story was a top 5 pick for me.ReplyDelete
there are still a bunch of their songs banging around in my memoryDelete
I always knew you were cool. Now I have proof.ReplyDelete
I was something - LOLDelete
The NeverEnding Story is a great movie!ReplyDelete
its a classicDelete
I loved Thriller and had to go buy the Micheal Jackson red jacket, because I'm just that cool, LOLReplyDelete
Neverending Story is a great movie.
Sorry- just can't get behind NKOTB. Never did like boy bands. Still don't. :)
I wanted that red jacket so badly!Delete
EEK... I remember that era from my kids! Also remember the Thriller video scaring the crap out of my daughter when she was little. Every time it came on, she would either leave the room, or cover her ears and hide her head.ReplyDelete
too bad it scared her, was a great videoDelete
hang tough... is that a new kids song?...ReplyDelete
We all love something...right!
Howlin' Wolf Records: On-Line Magazine
hangin tough - yep, and I know every word!Delete
Loved "Neverending Story", first heard the song on the radio, then saw the movie, then read the book. Great stuff! The "Thriller" album reminds me so much of my freshman & sophomore years in college!!ReplyDelete
I don't recall hearing the song on the radio, but I may haveDelete
New Kids On The Block are so awesome, great post Bay Girl, it's such a great idea to go over all of our first loves, Alex really made a good idea with this one.ReplyDelete
when NKOTB did their reunion tour a few years ago I couldn't get tickets... that Joe broke my heart a second time LOLDelete
I watched The Neverending Story dozens of times with my children. The second one was a disappointment.ReplyDelete
there are only a few sequels that are as good or better than the originalDelete
I loved Thriller! The video was great. :)ReplyDelete
It was great - still is reallyDelete
A kids version of Dracula, how cool is that? I still love the never ending story to this day. It is a fantastic movie!ReplyDelete
there are a bunch of classics I think should be kids versions - its a great way to decide if you like somethingDelete
I forgot that Leonardi di Caprio was on Growing Pains. It's a weird concept but yeah, an upgrade from Joey McIntyre. And Thriller is a great video. You were a smart, well-rounded kid.ReplyDelete
and I'm still round :) (lol)Delete
I play Thriller on the Wii (Michael Jackson Experience) almost daily. Love that song!ReplyDelete
I want that game!Delete
Love, love Thriller! I remembe when this album dropped and we had a video night sleepover to catch the premiere on MTV.ReplyDelete
And I love that Dracula was your fave book. I did not read it until I was in high school. It is a wonderful novel.
if I'm not mistaken, that book is still at mom's with the hard words underlinedDelete
Hi Baygirl. I can share all those with you except your first love, lol. Great choices. One of the good things about this 'fest is that we get reminded of favourite things we'd forgotten, like the Never Ending Story. Priceless.ReplyDelete
its also exposing a whole lot of "new" things too (depending on age)Delete
I've not seen Neverending Story, but I definitely share your taste in 'Thriller' and Dracula! Great choices!ReplyDelete
you should definitely check it out! I love it :)Delete
I think I was just a little too old for Neverending Story--I haven't seen it, even though it appeals to me. It just hit when I was the age I thought I was too old for all that, but BEFORE I was mature enough to know that didn't matter.ReplyDelete
never too old for anything :)Delete
Oh, I love Thriller, but as a kid the video scared me to death! I learned the dance moves, though! But I always liked the video to Bad better.ReplyDelete
I can't remember the Bad video - guess what I'm going to be watching in a little while?Delete
Thriller is a great song. I love when radio stations play it around Halloween.ReplyDelete
I like when radio stations play it randomly during the year and you see people fighting the urge to dance to it in the storesDelete
Hi Baygirl, I see Thriller out there a lot. Seems to be one of the most loved set of songs.ReplyDelete
its a classic song -and the video was greatDelete
thriller is a classic!! hi from the a-z challenge!ReplyDelete
classic indeed! hi right back :)Delete
I LOVE The Never Ending Story! Actually all of those!ReplyDelete
Sorry I'm late.ReplyDelete
Neverending story! So wonderful. I haven't seen that in years.
Amazing thing about young crushes and that there is always someone new that comes along.
Thanks for sharing with us.
yes, they always do..Delete
Great picks. My ex husband was so in love with The Never Ending Story that he wanted to name our son Bastian. We ended up going with Aaron.ReplyDelete
he would have been the only kid in the class with that nameDelete
Congrats on being so darn young!ReplyDelete
thanks? some days, let me tell ya - I feel far from youngDelete
"Thriller" is still one of the greatest albums ever. Love the zombie dance.ReplyDelete
