Totally Awesome 80s Reflection #AtoZChallenge #4M


It’s Free Choice day, and also the day we post our reflections of the A to Z Challenge. 

I feel bad that I didn’t make it to many other people’s posts during the challenge. It’s been a crazy busy month for me, and I feel like I’m beginning to tread water. 

My theme this year was Totally Awesome 80s. It seemed to do well. Apologies to those who struggled with getting videos to play. Not sure what is going on there. 

Because the 80s were such an influential time in my life, musicwise, I thought I would share one last blast from the past.

  1. Soooo many good songs here. I enjoyed your theme, and videos not playing are just part of the You Tube experience, so....congratulations again. You got me in such an 80's mood that I will be doing 80's the next two weeks. My reflections post will be tomorrow.

  2. Mary,

    I loved listing to your playlist this morning and am happy that you decided to join the 4M crew on the dance floor. I'm so happy you pulled together a lengthy set of songs so I could hit play while doing other things in Blogosphere. Yep, I'm trying my best to catch up from last month. Don't worry about not getting to everyone is blogs. I had a rough time this year, as well, but I made sure to come by here so I'd have some good music to listen to while I did things. :) My reflections post will go up tomorrow. Have a boogietastic week, my dear!

  3. Really enjoyed all your music, Mary. I totally get not being able to visit more blogs. I was having trouble just keeping up with my regulars!

  5. Such a great playlist. Thanks for sharing them.

  6. Totally pawsome indeed! Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead :)

  7. Another very fun listen and you added U2! I enjoyed your A to Z very much since the 80s was my decade too.
