As an elementary school kid at the time, I wasn’t exactly up on my pop music while living in Patrick Henry Village. Sesame Street sing-along tapes notwithstanding, the first “real” band I remember really being interested in was Kiss…largely because a friend was very interested in them. In fact, one year we got a Kiss makeup kit for Halloween but we never used it because it looked too hard to apply. I should have mentioned that in my earlier Halloween post.
Somehow I got my hands on a few mix tapes, I think one from a friend and one from an older, wiser babysitter, which gave me a bit more of a glimpse into what was going on in the music world. Below are some of the songs I remember from those tapes. This isn’t specific to living in PHV, I know, but I thought perhaps this would help define the timeframe in which all my various PHV memories happened.
