Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

A Song, Two Jaguars, One Girl

This Day in History: October 10, 1987
Tawny Kitaen catwheeling across two Jaguars in her white negligee

Are you familiar with the song "Here I Go Again" by English hard-rock group Whitesnake? On this day in 1987, it hit the Billboard pop singles chart in the US. If you don't remember the song, perhaps the saucy video will jog your memory.
It is one of the most iconic videos of the 1980s boasting over 16 million views to date! What made it such a huge hit? Might it be the actress Tawny Kitaen had something to do with it? After all, she just spends most of her time in a white negligee, writhing and cartwheeling across the hoods of two Jaguars (which by the way became the most famous cars in pop-culture history)! The two cars are parked next to each other like two lovers in heat and all Miss Tawny does is drive up the temperature!
