Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

I think I just went back to the Eighties!

Or had an out of body experience!

Ever got on the track of something you haven’t seen or heard for sometime and then get completely lost and engrossed in it?

It happened to me today….

I take part every so often in a song chain thread on a particular forum I visit which involves following up with another song that has a word from the previous song posted in the title.

So following up on the song “Strange Brew” by Cream led me to post “People Are Strange” – not by The Doors as you may well imagine but the soundtrack for one of my all time favourite movies “The Lost Boys“. So I posted the track which was covered by Echo & The Bunnymen.

And that’s when I found myself “lost in music” or so to speak.

I came across a whole shed load of Echo tracks on YouTube and abandoned myself with glee 🙂

One of my most favourite songs: “The Back of Love“. Just click through the image below to enjoy it!

I got Lost in Music today...

Fancy a quick peep at The Lost Boys trailer? Go on, it’s got Kiefer Sutherland in it – it would be very rude not to take a look!

Sorry, I can’t help it….. I really got hooked on 80’s music.

My misspent youth at Legend, a nightclub in Manchester, UK (on Princess Street) every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday morning each week was the bane of my parent’s life and probably added a few early grey hairs for them wondering what I got up to….. 😦

I did go to the Hacienda club on occasion and saw John Foxx (formerly a lead singer with Ultravox) perform there one night, but Legend was definitely the place to be for me! Or, as me and my friends referred to it “Leg Ends”….
