Music meme day twelve

Day Twelve: A song from your pre-teen years.

But all my songs so far have been from my pre-teen years! Or nearly all. I think. I'm being lazy and not checking, but it's a fair assumption. Still, taken literally this one does require something from my lifetime, so we're going for something between 1975 and the beginning of 1988. In which case I choose this:

- and my apologies that the official upload has rubbish sound quality! Somebody's over done the bass. Adam, however, is not to be discouraged.

That is still the best jacket in pop music.

In other news, I have found out that this is a thing: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1405930055/

Look at it, and marvel at its wonder. And there's a whole series of them! Up to and including Peter Capaldi. Of course they might be awful, but their mere existence has made me smile, so that's good.

Gosh Adam Ant really takes me back! I still love most of the music I loved then but Adam is from another era!

I heard about the Mr Doctor books and smiled!

He's spectacularly early eighties, isn't he! I still love all that stuff though.

I totally approve of this song. :-)
Did I ever mention I got my first Adam & The Ants record directly from England? You couldn't get them here but my Dad had an English colleague and when he went back home for a visit one day he brought Kings of the Wild Frontier and a Soft Cell album back for me.

I saw those books at the Doctor Who Experience. They also had mugs and other stuff.

No, you've never mentioned that before. How lucky! Strange now, remembering back to when things were hard to get. No Amazon in those days!

Oh yes ... every time I travelled to the UK I came back with 20+ books because you couldn't get English books easily. Then there was the English Bookclub a few years later where you had to buy one book per quarter - really expensive ...

\o/ Guess who I've been playing over the last few days?

I am cheered people are reading the Mister Men Books them to their kids. Get 'em while they're young;)

I am going to guess that you've been playing Keith Harris and Orville.

While I was looking at those Mister Men bits on Amazon, I found that there is a book called "The Mister Men & the Dinosaurs". I may have to buy it. :)

Oh no! Well, I may have to steal your Mr Men book for that;p

Adam was always so enthusiastic about singing and dancing! ♥

He was, wasn't he! Probably still is. I haven't seen any of his recent performances though. I think he's a bit "part-time" these days.
