Totally Awesome 80's - E #AtoZChallenge

#AtoZChallenge 2021 banner

Welcome back to the Totally Awesome 80’s!  


A time when our clothes were bright and vivid (nobody had to tell us to NOT eat the laundry soap!). A time before cell phones,  and it was the very beginning of a time of personal computers. We had some unforgettable tunes, and that is what we’re focusing on today!


So, grab your big plastic earrings, put on your acid washed jeans, and let’s dance!

  1. Mary,

    Thanks for providing another wonderful playlist for me to listen to while I do various things in Blogosphere and around the house. It's a joy to have nice music playing in the background. Your theme hits the spot with me!

  3. I love the playlist but I am surprised that I don't know the last song or Election Day. How I danced to Wang Chun. In 1983/84, I went to Brock University and I saw Billy Idol in concert there. Because it was party week, I think tickets cost something like $20 or maybe even $10. My friends and I were shocked that Billy Idol was here.

  4. Tears for Fears were one of my favourites through the 80s! Great tune!

  6. Oh how I loved Wang Chung--for a short while. They were like a flash in the pan. But I still enjoy hearing their music.
