Long awaited #80’s post!

18 Feb

Alright, so it’s no secret that music is fantastic. It’s also safe to assume you each know the awesomeness of the 1980’s. Don’t agree? Walk away from the computer, slap yourself, welcome back. Let’s try that again…music from the 1980’s is great(for the most part).

So, I belong to a 1980’s music club on Twitter. I mean, we’re a club without a clubhouse, so to speak. Everyday, unless I’m feeling super-busy or super-lazy, I try to chime in. Throw my song of the day in there as well as Youtube their selections. And I’ve promised(like two months ago) to blog about the music of the 80’s. So, since everyone has their own favorites from ‘the time’ – I decided to share mine. I also piled on a few links for the best songs in terms of remixed 80’s classics.

So sit back, grab a Whatchamacallit and a can of ice-cold Tab…cause it’s about to be on.

My ten picks(no certain order):

“I Wanna Go Back” – Eddie Money

“I Can Dream About You” -Dan Hartman

“The Finer Things” -Steve Winwood

“Pour Some Sugar on Me” -Def Leppard

“Toto” -Africa

“Hurts So Good” -John Cougar

“Nothing’s Gonna Stop us Now” -Starship

“Hard to Say I’m Sorry” -Chicago

“Against All Odds” -Phil Collins

“Out of Touch” -Hall and Oates

Yes, I realize a lot of songs could have also made this list. I encourage you to comment and post your own. I also, while posting my list, remembered how the guy from Hall and Oates had one hell of a mustache. So now that you have my ten favorites, I’m going to drop a few covers of 80’s songs as well. I’ll attempt links, but those who know me well, know that tech eludes me :)

There you go, it’s time to refill the coffee cup. I hope you found at least one cover that did it for you. Thanks for taking the time to check out the post, and feel free to so do the same with my official website!
