If we'da known Saturday was indie mom's bday, we'da baked a cake. Course, we'da had to eat it ourselves, as our fiber optic doesn't transmit foodstuffs. Anyway, my new friends - and yes, both indie mom and alt gramma over at the excellent Speed of Dark kindly extended the bloggy hand of friendship to pplist - celebrated indie mom's thirtieth with an excellent post. (You gettin' all this, hmmm?) indie mom has the clever plan of posting a song from each of her thirty years so far and began today with '77-'81. Below are the three I like best. Oops, and of course, Happy Belated Birthday, indie mom! I'm looking forward to many happy returns to Speed of Dark!
Fleetwood Mac – Never Going Back Again – Speed of Dark
Dire Straits – Sultans of Swing – Speed of Dark
The Cure – A Forest – Speed of Dark
