Throw on those leg-warmers because it’s time to cut footloose with tunes from the rockin’ 80s! This week I promise to bring you music that will have you ‘vogueing’ and pining for a Brat Pack movie on T.V. because if there’s one thing Iove, it’s the 1980s!
Thriller / Michael Jackson – ‘The Walking Dead’ has nothing on the iconic Thriller music video, which has inspired flash-mobs across the globe. This album was a defining moment for the decade, and my personal favorite off the album has to be ‘Wanna be Startin’ Somethin”!
Now that’s what I call the 80s – If you’re looking for a sort of ‘time capsule’ for this decade, this album is one to check out! It has everything from Billy Joel to Cindy Lauper! I’m partial to ‘Jessie’s Girl’ myself! Check out this album and you’ll find yourself soon rocking out in your car on the way home, having the time of your life.
The immaculate collection / Madonna – This is the part where I tell you that this happens to be my favorite album of ALL TIME! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been listening to Madonna! I’ve learned that Madonna has the power to get me through the most difficult day! A little splash of ‘Holiday’ just makes everything better, or if I need a big pick-me-up I listen to ‘Express Yourself’!
The best of Blondie / Blondie – Debbie Harry led this rockin band with hits like ‘Tide is High’ but my favorite will always be ‘Rip Her to Shreds’!
Greatest hits / Run-DMC – Easily one of the most influential hip-hop groups to ever exist, Run-DMC delivered huge hits in the 1980s! In fact, they were the first hip-hop group to earn a gold record! So crank up ‘King of Rock’ and get ready to bop your head along with these jams!
Big ones / Aerosmith – Sure, you can see Steven Tyler on American Idol, but lets flash back to the 1980s during Aerosmith’s revival! Get ready to rock out to some of Aerosmith’s greatest hits! Though, my favorite will always remain to be ‘Dude (Looks Like a Lady)’!
Next week–the 1990s!
