Tracks of my years

Many moons ago when I was young and carefree.......Nelson Mandela was being released from prison, Italy was hosting the World Cup and we were all singing the Wonder Stuff's 'Size of a Cow', wearing cut off denim shorts with stripy tights and Doc Martins, I was lucky enough to have a group of about 15 friends. We did pretty much everything together, or in smaller groups comprised of the same people.......trips to the cinema or American Adventure, drinking a bottle of Newcastle Brown between all of us, getting grounded for vastly unjust reason........ we also used to have amazing house parties.

All of our Parents were pretty cool and because they knew everyone in the group they would rather us have house parties and keep an eye on what we were up too (or at least they thought so!!!)  At one of these house parties, where actually I don't remember there being any parents, we partied all night and on the stereo on repeat was this song:

It was an awesome party and since then it has become mine and Nelly's song. Every time I hear it I smile and it makes me feel young again!!!  This one is for her because we miss her very much and I know she's feeling a bit homesick at the mo :-( Love you Nelly xxx
