Totally Awesome 80's - S #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, put down your Rubiks Cubes, grab your RayBans, and let’s dance!

ps.. I would typically do a 'Throwback Thursday' post today, but as the entire month is a throwback, I've decided to skip today's normal post. I do hope that you will join me on Thursdays in the following months for a Throwback Thursday blog hop. The only rules for the blog hop is that your featured music be at least 10 years old.

Come back tomorrow to see what ‘T’ songs are reppin’ the 80s! 



  1. Mary,

    I'm back this morning to spin some 80s tunes on your virtual record player. Looking over your line-up I see you have some good ones. "Steal Away" I haven't heard in awhile. Now, it's time to get things going in Blogosphere with your music playing in the background. ;) Happy A2Zing, my dear!

  2. Loving every moment but I don't know the #2 song but I know all the rest. I love The Car and was shocked when Ric Ocasick died and when he separated from his long time wife. Sledgehammer was not only a great tune but I believe, the video won many awards.

  3. I love Sledgehammer, and the video to it is amazing!

  4. Great songs. Love Smooth Operator. Sade puts on a great show.
