Weekly Song Challenge #16/Totally Awesome 80's - R #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, grab your big plastic earrings, put on your acid washed jeans, and let’s dance!

On Wednesdays, I present a Weekly Song Challenge.  I’m going to just include that challenge in this post to make it easier on everyone.  The linky below is for those joining in the Song Challenge for this week.  Also, your responses don’t need to be limited to the 80s. I stayed with the 80s theme - just because :) Click Here for more information

A Song with ‘Radio’ in the title: On The Radio - Donna Summer

A Song with ‘Rain’ in the title: Mandolin Rain - Bruce Hornsby & The Range

A Song with ‘Run’ in the title: Running With The Night - Lionel Richie

Come back tomorrow to see what ‘S’ songs are reppin’ the 80s! 



  1. Mary,

    I'm behind on my normal blogging activity and don't even know if I'll get my Wild Wednesdays post done which I'll apologize in advance for not getting a chance to participate in the WSC. :( For now, I'm going to rock with your rad 80s playlist while I doodle or put together one of next week's A2Z posts. Phew, I wish I had done all of this months back instead of allowing myself fall into doubt of whether or not I'd do the challenge which now looking back was ridiculous of me to even entertain. Have a good day and happy A2Zing, my dear!

  2. I love all these! Thanks for putting them together for me to listen on my drive.

  3. There were a couple of songs I did not know like like #5 and #8 but so enjoyed and glad to see Rapture on here. I love that song and remembered when I memorized her Man From Mars bit. I also love Rock Me. Amadeus which is kind of dumb but I like it. Donna Summer had such a powerhouse voice and enjoyed the first song but I can't go any further as the video is unavailable...bummer.

  4. I'm in a kind of Rapture after experiencing this playlist. Rapture. Rock Me Amadeus. Run to You. Really Rockin'!
