Monday Music - The Fabulous Irene Cara...

This is where it all began (personally one of my fave articles ever!!).

Music is SO important to the happiness of my home. :)

Now most Monday mornings when the working week looms I'll try to post a fave song or some music I'm listening to at the moment to provide some musical motivation.

So my little groovers......... here's today's installment!


Today we have one of my all time favourites... Irene Cara with 'What A Feeling' from the movie Flashdance.

I soooo wanted to be the girl in this movie when it came out. I remember singing it in my bedroom (and attempting some of those dance moves). And, many's the time I've belted this one out during a good karaoke session!

Love it!

And, as always when thinking of our 'Musical Must Haves' section...

Ask yourself: 'Do I L.O.V.E music?'

Which leads to: 'Have I got enough of it in my home and in my life?'

Because: Good interior design caters to ALL our senses, not just our eyes.... that's why I call it 'Atmospheric Design' instead!

  1. Such a classic! I have actually never seen the movie - but know the scene (who doesn't!?)

  2. At the time I was a figure skater so you can imagine how everything that was related to dancing was fascinating for me. I couldn see the movie until it was on television a few years later, but on tv the video was on heavy rotation and every magazine featured specials about hte movie and Jennifer Beals' style. I really go back to that time when i see this video or I hear the song. I was crazy about Fame, both the movie and the serial too.

  3. Wow Bobbi, a figure skater!! That is truly amazing. You must have been very strong, flexible and fit to do that..... I imagine it can be pretty gruelling and exhausting. It always amazes me what people have done through-out their lives. Incredible.

    I think most people recognise that particular scene Meghan, you're right. Here in Aus we had a beer commercial fashioned after it a few years ago with an overweight guy in a leotard taking off the dance moves... very funny!

  4. Yep, very good for karaoke and better to dance around crazy! My man laughed as soon as I pressed play lol

  5. Such an awesome song - it never fails to make me sing along and dance along with it ... it is therefore best listened to in the privacy of my own home! ;)


I'm very grateful for your participation.

Until next time may your home be full of lots of love, laughter, and life!
