This is my second favorite 80's song, and the music video is just as badass! Pump up the volume, kiddies, and bust out your best 80's dance moves! Take On Me by A-ha.
Because I have the terrible knack of quoting 80's song lyrics in regular conversation, this week's pick was inspired by discussions from this week. Enjoy some Jody Watley and Looking For A New Love. Happy New Year's, everyone!
I love the 80's, especially, for moments such as this. Television was utilized so well back in the day. It is amazing. I kind of miss those days.
Enjoy, Billy Squier's Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You.
I give you Wham's Last Christmas, because "Tis the Season," and it's my birthday. I can play Wham if I want to.
If you asked my very tiny, child self what my jams were, this would definitely be on that list. I used to belt out what words I knew and some that sounded close enough to my tiny ears. This is damn near an essential 80's track. I give to you Belinda Carlisle's Heaven Is A Place On Earth.
In honor of Monday's post, it felt only right to make this week's song As the World Falls Down by David Bowie from the movie the Labyrinth. Go on and get your swoon on. I will.
It's that time. I said that the last song wouldn't be an 80's Halloween without it, but without this song, it just wouldn't be a Halloween. Do we really need to have a conversation about it? I put this track on my playlist three times, because it is that big of deal. It deserved to be evenly dispersed through a playlist that was built to play for at least four hours. Les and I had to make our own fun back in the day when we both worked for a physician's office. I present, Michael Jackson's Thriller.
Have a Happy Halloween!
It just wouldn't be an 80's Halloween without this beloved track from one of my all time favorite movies ever! I want to see it in the theater again, because I love it so much! Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.
It may not be specifically related to Halloween, but I am a writer and enjoy wordplay. The outside of the box is just as fun as the inside. I was especially proud to add this 80's track to my Halloween playlist, (I Just) Died in Your Arms Tonight by Cutting Crew.
I could seriously go on all day featuring songs that have graced my holiday playlist, but there are only five Wednesdays in the month. We will have to make do. If you love David Bowie, you will love the next selection, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps). Add this track to your next party and rock out!
