Pretty In Pink

So, i'm driving home from work today, and I Go Crazy by Flesh For Lulu came on the radio. OMG, I swear I was transported back to the 11th grade when my hair was spiky, and I desperately wanted a pair of Doc Martens (which I didn't get until I was 22).

Although this song is actually from the movie Some Kind of Wonderful (1988), I was mentally transported into another John Hughes movie, Pretty In Pink (1986). More specifically the apartment of Iona. I was just a teenager in 1986, and oh my goodness I wanted to live in that very apartment. Painted asian stencils on the walls, retro furniture, and the floor! Wow the floor.

Not sure I could live with the bee-hive hair though.
