About us.

Sam is five and loves to draw, furiously and with great passion.

I'm his mom, Lori. I am obsessed with the 80's - maybe a little too much. Movies, fashion, television, giant hair...pretty much everything makes me nostalgic for that decade.

Sam's first favorite song ever at age two or three was "Whip It" by Devo which of course made me crazy happy.

We mostly listen to 80's music at home and in the car and one day after hearing "Hold Me Now" by The Thompson Twins on our way to school, Sam came home and drew this for me:

"Hold me now...warm my heart"

He said it was us. He went on and on how much he liked the song and wasn't it so pretty?

I agreed.

We started paying attention to the music that's always on in the background and Sam started drawing what he heard. This was our time together. I love sitting with him and sharing something I love so much with someone I love so much.

We put on some music and sit at the kitchen table. He always asks me the song title and when I tell him he'll usually giggle and shake his head, then he gets down to business.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through the hits of the best decade of music ever through fresh eyes.
