    i am one of Gloria’s big fans here in the Philippines…i found her music video on youtube and i hear it on fm radio stations that only play 80′s music. i am into lovesongs since 1988 (since i was 3). they are relaxing and far better than the music nowadays. in all my years in this world there have been less than ten people who believed me when i told them i havent forgotten some of my 80′s childhood memories. they dont believe that i started making memories as early as 3.. my secret is the 80′s music.
