Friday Nostalgia

1988: I was 25, living in an apartment in Decatur. I had a toddler, was pregnant with my second child, and my 23-year-old sister lay dying right up the road, in Emory Hospital. I'd have to beg my husband to come home for an hour so I could visit her.

He didn't love me.

Jeff, playing night and day on VH1, became my fantasy husband.

Not to mention the awesome mullet.

I vaguely recall this song. I was deep into my goth phase then. If it wasn't Siouxsie, Dead Can Dance or Bauhaus, I wasn't interested. Except for maybe Kate and Kylie, but I didn't dare tell anyone. :)
