Editor’s Note: The end of the 80’s marked the end to my adolescence, the end to High School, and the start of a chapter that added color, chaos and a cast of characters to my life that would leave a huge impact on who I am today. My teenage taste in music led the way to a style and lifestyle that would have me embracing the subculture of the late 80’s underground Hollywood club scene. Songs like this one bring back those days and nights, and the way it felt to be alive in my skin then.
