I thought of three singers from the 80s that I haven’t heard of in a long time. I wondered to myself whatever happened to them. I am aware that George Michael has died. I have seen Rick Springfield on some TV interviews, and he looks really old. I think he has struggled with a lot of emotional problems. I googled Rick Astley, and I found out he actually retired in 1993. I used to have a crush on all three of these men, even though George Michael was gay. I didn’t really care for Rick Springfield’s music. I just thought he was cute, and the song, Jessie’s Girl, was popular, even though the lyrics sounded retarded. But Jessie’s Girl was probably his best song because I don’t remember his other songs.
Rick Astley’s music is better because his songs are more romantic and positive. His songs put me in a good mood. And, I used to listen to Wham! a lot in college, when I was living in the dorm. Every morning, I used to literally wake up to the song, Wake me up Before you Go-Go, which used to energize me in the morning to help me get up and get ready for my classes. It is very positive, in which I ended up using this song for my morning meditative ritual to start my day.
