Where do I even begin? From the neon attire to the "I just got electrocuted" teased hair to the keytar playing leather wearing musicians, the 80s were a good time. Despite all this awesomeness, for me the 80s were spent watching the most bombastic cartoons (Jem anyone?) and swooning over the New Kids On The Block (seriously I had the books, the cassette tapes, and even a pj tee shirt with their pictures on it, crazy). Yep I was just a wee child in those days reading every Babysitters Club book I could get my hands (I thought I would one day start my own busniess watching kids, yeah right) and crafting friendship bracelets for my very best buddies. I was afraid of E.T., rocked a side pony many times, collected scratch and sniff stickers, and wore my jellys till they had to be thrown away. While the 80s were cool in my book its only now that I realize how much I missed out on since I was so little then. I didn't have a clue about Duran Duran, Dirty Dancing, or Mr. Roboto. Oh but I am making up for it now. So dust off your aqua net, put on your high top reeboks (preferably with some scrunched down socks), throw back some Pop Rocks with coke, and get ready for a fun inducing dance party. Take me away Patrick Swayze!
I know that playlist is crazy long, but how could I choose just one Madonna or Michael Jackson tune? Its wasnt possible. Dont judge me, just listen and be happy.
