Totally Awesome 80's - I #AtoZChallenge

Welcome back to the Totally Awesome 80’s!  

A time when the M in MTV actually stood for Music. A time when your weekends were spent at the local Blockbuster picking out movies to watch. We had some unforgettable tunes, and that is what we’re focusing on today!

So, grab your AquaNet, put on your leg warmers, and let’s dance!

Come back on Monday to see what ‘J’ songs are reppin’ the 80s! 



  1. Any playlist that starts with a Billy Joel song is wonderful

  2. Tiffany, Belinda and NKOTB - it doesn't get much more 80s than that! Happy memories.

  3. I have to admit, not much into the sappy New Kids but enjoyed all the rest and love that Elton John video with a young Bruno from Dancing With The Stars, dancing in his S & M outfit.

  4. Mary,

    Excellent song set! I don't remember Tiffany covering "I Think We're Alone Now". It's not exactly like the original, though. I definitely put her own spin on this oldie. I finished making my home-made pizza that we're having for dinner tonight while I listened your entire playlist. :) Have a great weekend!

    Check out today's Looney Tune Injun Putty Tat Art Sketch when you get a moment, my friend. Happy A2Zing!!

  5. Yeah, I was so irritated when MTV stopped showing actual music videos! They were an interesting phenomenon -- sometimes terrible, of course, but some were really works of art.

  6. Perfect list for me to have while reading all the other blogs. I Can't Go For That is my fave of them.
