And So It Came From 1989

"What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue?" This is the question posed by Swedish pop duo Roxette in the chorus of their 1989 hit "The Look".

I heard "The Look" today on my way home from the movies and it sounded kind of amazing?

I don't remember being that aware of the song when it came out. In 1989, I was an eleven year old obsessed with musical theater and old standards, which is why my reaction today was so surprising. It's not like I was reliving some feeling or moment from my pre-teens. The song just sounded really good to me.

It's a great sing-along-song too! I love it when this sort of thing happens.
