The Songs I Loved at Age 12

This month my oldest niece is turning 12 and that is pretty significant. It is the end of being ‘the kid’ and that start of being a teenager. Music has always played a big part in my life and I know that for my niece, it is no different. So in honor of her birthday; here are 5 of my favorite songs the year that I was 12.

  1. Richard Marx: Right Here Waiting I loved this song so much that I even learned how to play it on the piano.
  2. The B-52’s: Love Shack is this song really this old? Wow, I really am getting old!
  3. Janet Jackson: Rhythm Nation Yeah, so I was a HUGE fan of Janet Jackson during this time. This was song was one that I constantly rewound the tape to listen to.
  4. Tom Petty: Free Fallin’ During this time I developed a deep love and appreciation for Tom Petty and it continues to this day.
  5. Young MC: Bust A Move Just so everyone knows, I still listen to this song to this day while working out.

  3. OK…………Let’s start with Richard Marx…….I do like that song but what’s with the hair? Then there’s…………..The Love Shack, which we already talked about……… song but the content? Janet Jackson’s video was unavailable. Tom Petty………so-so on that song. MC Hammer?………..I can’t begin to imagine how anyone could exercise to that music! So I’m thinking…………..The 60’s get knocked for various reasons but I’m stick’in with it! Next time post some songs by groups that were popular when I was 12 like The Beach Boys and The Beatles! Now THERE’S some good music!
