MY FIRST FOUR LOVES
Alex J. Cavanaugh (Captain Ninja) is the host to this very interesting Blog Hop. 
Visit Alex and join in and have some fun! 
http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com.au/

1. MOVIE: 

I was trying to think of something really cool, but after some thought deciding to be honest, I would have to say:

Dirty Dancing starring Patrick Swayze!



2. BAND:

     SWEET
  
Original Members - Steve Priest, Brian Connolly, Mick Tucker, and Andy Scott.



  


HERE IS THE SONG I LOVED OF THEIRS - THE BALLROOM BLITZ

BECAUSE I LIKE ANIMA - THIS IS THE DEATHNOTE VERSION - ENJOY!!!


     

     3.  BOOK


     IT HAS TO BE  - 

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    By:

    Douglas Adams 

     

       

      I still have one of the original copies packed away somewhere in the house. I have read this book an amazing amount of times and just never get sick of it.

    My favourite character in the story: Zaphod Beeblbrox

     

     

     

    4. PERSON: 

    I could say my husband (Paul), who has been the love of my life, but the very first boy I thought that I loved was Lennox. I was in third year high school and I had his name written everywhere - on my books, my shoes, me ....

    I was lucky, he went to a private boys school the other side of town, so he never saw his name plastered on everything I owned. After school finished the relationship just petered out!

    I walked into a bakery one day up here on the coast, just after delivering my second child, low and behold there he was standing in front of me! At least he recognized me and stopped to chat!

    I loved Dirty Dancing, too. I do remember my first love, but I went with my hubby today. :)

    C.M.Brown said...

    Lennox was possibly more of a crush than a love but it was nice to remember him!

    Angeline Trevena said...

    You made some great choices today; love Dirty Dancing and Ballroom Blitz (and Death Note too!)

    So cool that you bumped into Lennox, I'm now Facebook friends with my first love and we had a long chat catching up on the last several years.

    Miranda Hardy said...

    Great firsts! Have a great week!

    Jemi Fraser said...

    Those outfits on Sweet are something else - singers used to have such fun dressing up in those outfits! Loved Hitchhikers Guide - great story :)

    L. Diane Wolfe said...

    My husband made fun of Dirty Dancing for years until I finally made him watch it - and he had to admit it was good.

    Danielle B. said...

    Hitch-hikers' is a great book!

    Cate Masters said...

    Lennox, what a great name. Funny to run into him years later.

    A Daft Scots Lass said...

    I love Patrick Swaze in Dirty Dancing.... the bad boy.

    Mina Burrows said...

    The 2nd person I've read that referenced Dirty Dancing. I still quote that movie sometimes. Love it. :)

    wordsfromsonobe said...

    Dirty Dancing was a real coming-of-age movie, eh? :) I thought the Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy was a good First Book Love.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog :)

    Andrea Teagan said...

    Love love love the hitchhiker's guide! Ballroom Blitz is great, I forgot about that song :) and of course how could I forget dirty dancing. And I did not marry my first love either, but I adore my husband. Thanks for sharing your first loves :)

    Andrea

    Donna Shields said...

    I debated between Footloose and Dirty Dancing, but Footloose won out.

    Ella said...

    What fun memories dance your list! It was fun to read~
    Great picks :D

    HWR Curator said...

    i never liked dirty dancing, mostly jealous... great book choice.

    We all love something...right!

    Lynn Proctor said...

    dirty dancing is one of my daughter's favorites, so i have seen it many times since she was born----it's funny, she found a lost cd of the soundtrack to it just yesterday!!

    Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

    First one to select The Sweet today! They had some hits, many of which have been covered by other bands.
    Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

    Annalisa Crawford said...

    I love Sweet! I'm a glam rock girl at heart. I was at a music festival with my kids last weekend, and a Meatloaf lookalike sang Little Willy. The kids were highly amused, and just a little incredulous... time for the greatest hits album to come out again lol

    Paula Martin said...

    Hitchhiker's Guide was such fun, I loved it.

    Tasha Seegmiller said...

    Hmm...Dirty Dancing is the only thing here that I recognize. And I didn't even see that until my late high school years. I think my mom thought it would corrupt me or something :)

    Nancy Thompson said...

    I still love Dirty Dancing and I watch it every time I catch it on the TV lineup. Great choice!

    Allison said...

    Hitchhiker's Guide was a lot of fun and a lot of silly :)

    michelle said...

    I love Dirty Dancing - especially the feel-good moment when he hoists Baby up into the air...
    Now the song Ballroom Blitz (original version)will be ringing in my head for the next few hours!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Angeline, yes I got the Death Note in there as well!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Miranda!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes, they did. I also liked Kiss - way before they became commercial and of course Bowie and Alice Cooper! Loved the ones who dressed up!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Mine was the same!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes Daniella, it sure is!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes, especially just after giving birth, when I felt all fat and frumpy!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes, he definitely had charisma!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes, I just had to put it on my list.

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks. Yes I thought about putting up the kid books and movie, but then I decided to go with the young adult, adult time in my life!

    C.M.Brown said...

    We have a lot in common Andrea! Thanks for stopping by!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Footloose is a good choice too!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Ella.

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Jeremy. I think a lot of guys were jealous of Patrick Swayze.

    C.M.Brown said...

    I hope you liked it when your daughter watched and listened to it Lynn.

    C.M.Brown said...

    Alex, what a great idea you had with this, it has been really fun checking out every ones first loves. A lot of response too! Yes the Sweet, gotta love em!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Ah Meatloaf, the thing that turned me off him, was all the sweat!!! But I must say, he did have a good voice, or should I say still does!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Paula.

    C.M.Brown said...

    You did lead a sheltered life! I had a childhood like that as well, but I was allowed to go out with a girl who was my third cousin and her folks were close family friends as well and so she was trusted. Our parents would pay for taxis to take us to the movies, we would catch another taxi and go to parties or dances. A bit of a bad girl at the time!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes me too!

    C.M.Brown said...

    That it was Allison.

    C.M.Brown said...

    THIS IS A BALLROOM BLITZ!!!! Lots of fun!

    Kela McClelland said...

    Dirty Dancing is an excellent choice. Great 'Firsts' post :)

    Marta Szemik said...

    I loved Dirty Dancing! Still do. Will watch it anytime it's on TV:)

    Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

    OMG, there wasn't a school dance that was any good if it didn't have Ballroom Blitz! All that and pleather pants. Those were the bad old days!

    EvalinaMaria said...

    Dirty Dancing is one of my favorites also. Thank you for sharing your memories.

    Evalina, This and that...

    Michael Pierce said...

    I've actually never read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I think I really should. Dirty Dancing is classic!

    Cassie Mae said...

    Oh bumping into your first love! How cute! And ya, points for recognizing each other. I often bump into people who totally say hi and for the life of me, I can't remember who they are, but I play along anyway.

    Robyn Campbell said...

    Dirty Dancing is an excellent choice! Patrick Swayze was awesome! I mean bodaciously awesome! Great choices. :-)

    Melissa Bradley said...

    Ballroom Blitz ... I always wondered who sang that. What a cool sound. Yes, Dirty Dancing is one of my all time faves, I love, love that final dance scene and the water lift. ;) Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a brilliant novel. Awesome choice!

    Lynda R Young said...

    Hitchhikers!!! Great first love! It's been a while since I read that last.

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Kela!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes it just does something, doesn't it!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes, exactly right. No school dance was complete without the Ballroom Blitz!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks for stopping by again Evalina!

    C.M.Brown said...

    It certainly is worth the read Michael! Wow do you like Dirty Dancing too!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes Cassie Mae, I can relate to that! I always have people say hello to me and I have no idea who they are either, but I am like you I say hi and play along too!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes that he was Robyn. Glad you liked my choices!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Melissa!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes it certainly is a good book Lynda, glad you like it!

    DeniseCovey _L_Aussie said...

    Hey Maroochydore girl! Great choices! I thought I was looking at Abba for a mo'. I'm surprised I haven't seen Hitch Hikers up before.
    Denise

    C.M.Brown said...

    No not an Abba fan, I like my rock a bit harder!

    Daisy Carter said...

    LOVE Dirty Dancing - that is cool! It's like a right of passage for girls to love Baby and Johnny!

    Heather M. Gardner said...

    Sorry I'm late.
    Holy lot of sequined jump suits! Great song though.
    Dirty Dancing is popular.
    Great picks.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    Heather

    Jessica Salyer said...

    Love the movie and the band, never read the book. That's so neat that you ran into your first love years later. Even better that you married the love of your life.

    C.M.Brown said...

    Yes, that is very true. It is a classic movie for girls.

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks for stopping by Heather and for the follow!

    C.M.Brown said...

    Thanks Jessica, you should read Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, it is a real eye opener!

    Tonja said...

    Dirty Dancing is still awesome!

    Barbara said...

    Haha! Awesome love story, and congratulations on your love with your husband :)Enjoyed myself here!

    Sharing the Love!

    I was nearly literally dragged to see "Dirty Dancing" by my then girlfriend. I thought I would hate it but actually wound up liking it. As for your book, yes, it was an awesome read.
