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



  1. Some great songs here. I remember Urgent from High School which was all the rage that year. I was hoping for a U2 song :)

  2. Mary,

    The ultimate sounds from the 80s! "Upside Down" is utterly fantastic. Diana Ross really moved into the disco scene with finesse with this Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit. Huey Lewis & the News is probably one of my favorite 80s group. They put out some good ones in the late 80s to early 90s. I was happy to learn Huey is back singing again. :)
