Siriusly, I LOVE 80's Music!!


Dearly Beloved Bloggers,

SAY SAY SAY....Do y'all ever get the urge to go back in time? Well, every now and then, I like to step into a musical time machine (aka Sirius Radio) and let it take me back to the sounds of the past. The other day, I was in the mood for some feel good 80's music and so, with just a click of the remote, I was reminiscing and having a good o' time. It made me wanna slip on some warm leg warmers, tease up my hair in a big frenzy mess and start dancing like a MANIAC. Well....not exactly, but you get my drift. I don't know about y'all but I think the 80's had the best music. Back in the day, you could sing about anything and WHAM it was a hit. All that was needed was a good beat. I mean really....when was the last time you danced to a song about how a STRAY CAT STRUTs or someone named MR. ROBOTO? The possibilities were endless for song writers and BOY (GEORGE)...could they WHIP IT!! You could sing about a girl named EILEEN or BILLIE JEAN. And at times, VENUS was her name. Other times, you could sing about your SISTER CHRISTIAN motoring and asking her what's her price for flight. And don't forget about that little ditty about JACK AND DIANE.

Colors were also a big deal in the 80's. Oh, yes. Those TRUE COLORS did shine through. In the 80's, the RAIN was PURPLE, the HOUSES were PINK, and the WINE wasn't just red. It was RED RED, as were those LITTLE RED CORVETTES and those 99 RED BALLOONS. And you remember when EBONY AND IVORY lived together in perfect harmony? Yup, those were the 80's. Weren't they just lovely?!!!

I hope your ears enjoyed this musical feast. Now it's time for me to BEAT IT. Thanks so much for going down ELECTRIC AVENUE with me.


P.S. If you GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN, just give me a call. My number is 867-5309.

  1. Miti,

    That was such an awesomely cool 80's post. I am an 80's girl through and through and I love catching that music on the radio whenever I can. My kids can spot it every time. "Mom, is that an 80's song?" You betcha!!

    Great, great post. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  2. That was cute!

    The 80's were the best. I have my 13 yr hooked on the tunes, too.

    Blessings

  3. MITI-

    Seriously...and I wouldn't admit this to anyone but my kids...I loved the 80's music! Everyone once in a while my hubby and I slip and break out into a song...our kids always end up staring out us with their mouths hanging open. They are not allowed to listen to pop music for obvious reasons and have had no experience with the FUN lunacy of what it was before it was all about sex, violence and drugs.

    You are so clever. It kind of reminds me of another 80's fad...the mad lib.

    Thanks for taking me back...now I can face my checkup at the old Doc a little easier.

  15. I love the 80s songs...the time was innocence, even as it wasn't. Even though the songs have what I recognize to be questionable lyrics, I remember them as being FUN!

  18. I did have the 80'a hair (sad, I know), and I do remember some of these songs, but several of them don't ring a bell with me.

    I guess I wasn't listening to music as much back then, but hey, the songs I do remember....I was groovin' to, with my far out hair......

  19. The 80's ROCK!!! We listen to the 80's on 8 all the time in our car! And if it isn't on, then the boys are asking for me to put it on! What an awesome post! Love love love it! Before school got out, we had spirit week and you can bet your sweet bippy that I dressed in 80's garb, complete with rolled jeans, 2 polo shirts, with the collars up, 2 pairs of socks, my banana clip, and big hair and blue eyes on decades day! So Much Fun! Thanks for the stroll down music memory lane!

  21. Loved this post and you are right...such great songs back then. The 80s on XM is one of my preset stations. I'll probably have half these songs stuck in my head for the rest of the night.

  22. LOL! I actually had a friend that had that number but then had to have it changed as she kept getting calls after they would play it on the radio. LOL!

  23. Great post! I love 80's music! I was a total Manic Monday fan! And, what about Walk Like An Egyptian? You are making me want to bust out my cassette tapes and use an amazing amount of Aqua Net to create sky-high bangs!

  30. I was going to try to pretend that I was too young to know all of that music, but it would be too big of a lie!

    Thanks for a blast from the past Miti!
