  1. 1. I would have had a perm and worn something that fell off one shoulder. But that’s as much as I can remember, my long term memory is hopeless and probably the victim of my overworked and excellent short term memory
    2. It was Judy which I only know from recent re-read. (Abandoned due to the INCEST omfg)
    3. Simon Le Bon, Sting, Bono, Boy George, George Michael, Paul Young.
    4. Obvs women artists were woefully under-represented. I also read recently that Bowie was meant to be the opening soloist but couldn’t get a flight soPaul Young had to sing his bit (no pressure)
    5. HBC only gets more fun with age but Winona? Really?!? I’ve never detected the least bit of magnificence in her.
    6. Because tuna is cat food

  2. 1. I can only remember my white leather Diana Ferrari boxing boots that I bought with the money from selling the Kingswood for $100. Probably with black jeans or a miniskirt and a t-shirt with Japanese writing on it. Fave song is You Spin Me Round – Dead or Alive.
    2. Had to Google it. Read the book, watched the mini-series, completely erased from my memory.
    3. Bananarama, Marilyn, Alison Moyet, Phil Collins, … trying to picture more and all I see is denim/black outfits and blonde tips.
    4. Paul McCartney ?
    5. Loved Winona in Heathers, never saw much of HBC back then, love her now though. Winona now is a pale shadow of her former self 😢
    6. Because eeeeewwww, cat food
