It's An Andy Gibb Kinda Day

Ever get a song stuck in your head?   For me today, it was "Shadow Dancing" by Andy Gibb.

I don't know where it came from, but it popped in my head and I haven't been able to get rid of it.

I had a huge crush on Andy back in the day.   Of course I was only about 10 when he was popular, but that still makes me ancient.   When I was in sixth grade I begged for his record after seeing him on tv and my dad said "Absolutely not".   Maybe it was the long golden hair....the flowing shirts or the tight polyester pants.......I guess I'll never know his objection to the youngest Gibb brother.  

Luckily for me, my mom did the shopping and she made sure I got it.   I listened to the whole LP over and over and over, and I still have it!

When I was reading some blogs recently, I ran across a posting on 'just a jeep guy' I think , (it was A Rad Homo) about Olivia Newton John on Glee and since I was in love with her too....maybe that's why Andy popped in my head.  

I had such a grush (that's 'g'ay / c'rush') on Andy and it's funny to remember all those innocent little gay boy day dreams I had while singing along to his record.  

Today I'm not so little or innocent, but I just added "Shadow Dancing" to my iPod because for me, it's an Andy Gibb Kinda Day!

Argh! Maybe that's it Lewis! Also I just realized I saw the ONJ clip on A Rad Homo! (the song is still bumping around in my cranium btw)

I had a Shawn Cassidy pillow from the Hardy Boys although I think I had a bigger crush on Parker Stephenson. There were many others but only one pillow picture that I laid my head on each night.

Some of those pics you have above were plastered on the walls of my cousins' room - I remember his hot hairy chest when I was young and thinking - that's kinda nice. It was about 5 when he was pop - and I still remember that!

The thing I liked best about Andy Gibb other than my 45 of I Just Want To Be Your Everything was the always unbuttoned shirts ! His chest made me gay, I swear it.
