Kris Jacen, Executive Editor over at MLR Press, had this awesome idea to make an anthology of stories inspired by love songs from the 80s. Needless to say I jumped on this opportunity. I love the 80s so much, to the point that I still listen to music from that era more than anything else. What can I say? We got screwed with the fashion back then —acid wash jeans, neon, and side ponytails, hello?— but the tunes were amazing.
For this call I chose Phil Collins' Against All Odds. The song is angsty as all get out and if you've read my work you know tension and angst is right up my alley :-D
So here's a blast from the past for your enjoyment. If you're as old as me, this song will probably bring some memories that I'd like for you to share with me. But if you're younger you've probably never heard it. If that's the case, I want you to tell me what you think. Are modern love songs better? Huh? Hehe
