We're having a bit of an 80s revival at our house. My daughter has lately discovered just how completely awesome the music from this era (yes, my era!) was! Now, my list of favorites is miles long, I thought I'd share a few of them here (complete with memories) so you too can join us in loving (remembering?) this fun music.
Back in the 80s music videos were just born. MTV was brand new (and decent still) with this cool music video thing going on. If a friend was lucky enough to have cable, we would often spend our evenings watching these videos. Here's one that I remember from those MTV evenings:
When I first started dating my husband (yes in high school) he gave me the 45 (raise your hand if you know what that is!) of this song. So, obviously, it reminds me of the beginning of our high school sweetheartness!
There was a dance, it was girls choice. I was junior, he was a senior. He was so cute, and I wanted so bad to ask him, but alas, I never had the guts. This song was the theme for that dance, and will forever remind me of my chickening out moment!
Nothing says 80s like a-ha... nothing:
Well, I could go on and on, but I'll stop at four. What songs do think I should have included? What songs bring back crazy memories for you (80s or not)?
