SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD     GAMES THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD    
STUART'S PANORAMIC WORLD     MASTERTRONIC - WHAT IF?     TREKKIE DAD AND SUPER SOPHIE

The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 39 - Keeping The Dream Alive (Münchener Freiheit)

Wow, here's a blast from the past.  I loved this song when I was younger, and completely forgot about it until hearing it on the radio earlier today. 
 
I had some serious childhood flashbacks after hearing this one again after such a long time.
 
Released in 1988, it peaked at number 14 in the UK Charts during December of that year and is apparently known as being a Christmas song due to it being released during the festive season, even though the song has no link to Christmas at all.
 
Crank up the volume and listen to that awesome orchestral sound.  It always reminds me of a bit of a mix of ELO and the stuff Paul McCartney released in the 80s.
 
Enjoy.
