Friday Flashback

The year, 1977. Me, a nine year old girl with a MAJOR crush on this guy.


OK, so after watching this I think I still might have a crush.

Oh the hours I spent scouring Teen Beat and Tiger Beat magazines for anything Shaun Cassidy related! And I'll tell you this, I would have done just about anything for a Shaun Cassidy satin jacket! I did have a fabulous blue satin jacket, but sadly, it was completely devoid of Shaun.

Many of Shaun Cassidy's songs have been posted on youtube and I listened to all of 'em while I was sewing on Wednesday. I must have heard them a thousand times when I was a kid because, amazingly, I still know the lyrics to nearly all of them and it's been 30 years since my Shaun Cassidy phase. On many of the songs, you can hear that distinct sound that only comes from a record playing. Aaaah! To be nine again...

OMG! I remember those magazines, we used to fight over who was having which poster. I had a poster scrap book. Wish I had kept it. He died didn't he? So young too? Am I wrong?
I loved Leif Garrett too

Shaun Cassidy! [swoon] I remember the words to that song too, which I didn't know until I just heard it now. Thanks for another great flashback, Kellie!
