The Sony Walkman went on sale for the first time in Kurt Russell played Elvis in a TV movie. But perhaps the best way to sum up the pop music landscape of is this: Ethel Merman made a disco album. Merman sang songs by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and George Gershwin, and she sang them exactly the way she'd been singing them for 50 years; the disco band was laid in behind her vocals by the producers after she'd finished. Even if Merman wasn't making many attempts to actually sing in a modern style, the fact that the year-old queen of Broadway was attaching her name to disco was a sign of how dominant the genre was.

She disliked the results of their sessions and gave them specific remixing instructions; they made slight changes and suggested that if she still did not like them, she could get them remixed herself.

I have finally realized that the church is fake and I'm so grateful that I got a second chance with this guy. However, and this might sound sad. I can pray for and with my youngest daughter and bless her thru prayer. I wish I could reach out to this girl and tell her not to pass up an awesome guy. I think there's a chance you two can find a way to agree on a lifestyle and values. Is it really worth it to give up what I want out of a relationship because its hard to balance studying which I understand is stressful and being with the person who makes you happy.
