Let's Talk About: The Carrie Diaries
I grew up watching my parents dance to 80's music, specifically New Wave, as it was the music of their youth. Tears for Fears, The Go-Gos, General Public remixes were part of the formidable years of a young me dancing alone in my crib.
My high school self got a hold of a collection of Chorus Girl CDs - thus continuing the 80s dancing streak. I would perform alone in my room, pretending to be in a Sheena Easton music video about a long long distance love affair.
I got into other genres of music and eventually forgot about those Chorus Girl CDs until I started watching The Carrie Diaries.
Like Sex & The City, the show and the characters are so exasperating that you'll end up hate-watching it. Carrie Bradshaw is a different kind of annoying as a teen and yet I still want her to succeed, somehow.
I love two things about this show - the fashion and the music. True to its theme, The Carrie Diaries remains loyal to everything 1980's and it is remarkable.
