Totally Awesome 80's - Y #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 ‘Z’ songs are reppin’ the 80s! 



  1. Mary,

    I added my link to your linky party for today's A2Z prompt. I guess I should've done this all along this month but my brain isn't work its best it seems. Your playlists have been phenomenal this month and has given me a lot of great background music to enjoy while making rounds, sketching, or doing work around the house. What on earth will I do next month when I don't have these daily playlists? Happy A2Zing, my dear!

  2. I love this year for songs. It was the best of times and the worst of times for me. My dad was dying of brain cancer and he died April 30th in 1988. That is tough but my summer was so much fun because my friend came home from Greece and my other came to Toronto and we partied a lot even though there was a huge heat wave that summer. These songs were playing everywhere. I would add A-Ha for the 1988 part-"You are the One."

  3. This has been so much fun! Thanks for the throwback memories of songs and i'm singing along every day of this month with you!
