The 1980s were my teenage years. That’s about all I want to say about that.
Actually, I’m totally kidding.
All in all, I had a wonderful decade during the Eighties. I was witness to so many amazing events and historical occurrences in our country and around the world.
I graduated from High School, traveled the world, and began a journey I never anticipated having, when I enrolled in Oklahoma Christian University (College, then) to finish my undergraduate degree in Vocal Music in 1989.
More than anything, though, the arts shaped me during this time in my life in a way they hadn’t before.
Popular music had a few different sounds during the Eighties, and the “David Foster sound” was one I really did, and very much still, enjoy.
In 1988, the Winter Olympic Games were held in Calgary, Canada. Since Foster is Canadian, he was asked to write some music for the games.
I just loved it then, and I love it now.
