Welcome back to the Totally Awesome 80’s!  

A time of big hair and mullets. A time of Jazzercise and leggings. 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!

  1. Mary,

    CONGRATULATIONS! We crossed the A-Z Challenge finish line yet another year together!! I can't tell you how happy I've been with your daily playlists. You've provided an excellent source of background music for me to enjoy while I do things in Blogosphere or around the house. I'm not sure what I'll do next month without your playlists since you've spoiled me. Now, it's off for some Zzzz. You've earned it, the other A2Zers have earned it, and so have I. Have a zensational day!
