A trip down memory lane, Supermum is dancing all the way

I ENJOY a good old trip down memory lane.

What can be better than discussing the "good old days" when memories have faded as much as my jeans were then.

That way we can remember the good times, good fashion and good music, and forget those things we would rather forget.

The bonus for "my generation" is there was no Facebook back then. That means there will be no "on this day 20 years ago" surprise images to pop up in your news feed today to remind you of those best forgotten things.

But there sure were some good times.

News of a few of my favourite bands from the "good old days" stepping back up on stage in CQ has got me reminiscing… and toe-tapping.

If you like a tribute or two, there is both ABBA and Elvis coming our way.

My, my, how can I resist you?

John Paul Young is also bringing us the hits written for The Easybeats, Grace Jones, Ted Mulry and more with the Vanda-Young Project.

I'll be falling in love again if he gets to my favourite song of all time - Evie, Parts I, II and III.

Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd will bring a little ray of sunshine to our region when they too hit the stage.

It is no tragedy that the Radiators are heading to Emu Park for a show that is sure to gimme plenty to Fess up about.

Even news The Screaming Jets are headed to Rockhampton has given me shivers.

Emmaus College and The Cathedral College are following up by doing school musicals of Grease and Xanadu. I'm singing the Grease mega-mix in my head as we speak.

The memories are not all local though.

I spotted on Facebook the promotion of a "High School Reunion" concert in Brisbane, featuring a number of artists who featured in both my record and tape collections.

Dragon, Eurogliders, GANGajang, MI-SEX, Swanee, The Chantoozies, 1927 and my namesake Sharon O'Neill are only part of the line-up.

It would be dreams of ordinary men to be there for that concert.

Join me on a trip down memory lane and include a few dance moves or two.

YMCA anyone? How about the Bus Stop?
