Hmmm........Maneater by Hall & Oates........

Juuuuust kidding!  I was a good girl in school........for the most part....... ;)


Seriously, I'd say for the most part, my life in the 80's was a blend of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper, Never Surrender by Corey Hart, and Land of Confusion by Genesis.

I was one of that fortunate generation who turned 18 in 1989......so the 80's.....and my official childhood.....closed at basically the same time.  Then, of course, my closing theme would be I Remember You by Skid Row.  8)

The Mob Rules Black Sabbath  This was the theme song to my Marine Corps boot camp platoon.  In the first month we were so bad at marching, the Drill Instructors called us "The Mob".  I jokingly said one day "Yea, but The Mob Rules", and it stuck.  I know the song predates the 1980's, but it was made popular again because of the movie "Heavy Metal".

Whenever I Call You Friend Kenny Loggins & Stevie Nicks  This was "our song" with my ex-wife and myself.  We were friends for over 3 years before we started dating.  It still holds a special place in my heart.

Jocko Homo Devo  The song was weird, made no sense, and the musicians playing it were beyond description.  But this song was a taste of things to come.

Eat It  Weird Al Yankovic  The first REAL hit by a musician that would have a career that spans over 20 years.  Al had the tallent to picjk a song we were sick to death of, and make it new all over again.  When I worked at Burger King in 1982-83, it seemed like every car that came through the drive-through had "Beat It" playing on the radio.  After 8 hours of this, I wanted to beat my head against the wall.

Watching The Wheels John Lennon  This song to me signaled the end of the 1970's and the beginning of the 1980's.

We Did'nt Start The Fire  Billy Joel  30+ Years of history compressed into a pop song.  Includes both highs and lows in our recent history.

Ebony & Ivory  Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder  My High School Theme Song, and a great song about racial harmony.  To bad in the early 1990's, that would vanish.

I saw this topic in the long ago past, and thought it deserved to be revived.  :)

How did you manage to do that?

You got your /i's and i's the wrong way round, yet you still managed to get the phrase in italics.

You must have written something like this

My eighties soundtrack would be:

How Soon Is Now? - The Smiths
Unloveable - The Smiths
That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore - The Smiths
I Know It's Over - The Smiths
Asleep - The Smiths
November Spawned A Monster - Morrissey
The Wrong Child - R.E.M.
It Doesn't Matter - Depeche Mode
Half A Person - The Smiths
Never Had No One Ever - The Smiths
I Want The One I Can't Have - The Smiths
Ask - The Smiths
Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want - The Smiths

Unfortunately, I never really knew these songs when I was a teenager, but I wish I had. They're a pretty good indication of what life was like...

Total Eclipse of the Heart-Bonnie Tyler

Life is a Lemon (and I want my money back)-Meatloaf-not an 80s song but it deffinatelly summed up my life in the 80s.

Man in the Wilderness-Styx-again, I think this is a 70s song but oh well.

Logical Song-Supertramp

Love is a Battlefield-Pat Benatar


As you can tell from these songs, life for me in the 80s SUCKED!!!!!
