The Eighties

We're having an eighties BBQ tomorrow. 

This aught to be interesting, the BBQ is to force Spring, the eighties is just to have a theme. You see, Kim and Shelley just can't do gatherings without themes. We've done all kinds of them, from Hawaiian Luaus to Live Aid parties. Once we even set up the TV in the back yard complete with stereo system and played the Live 8 concert with 40 people singing along. Tomorrow, they've decided it's the eighties all over again. 

The BBQ will be going, we shoveled the snow off it today and cut a path to it. Hair will be spiked, clothing will be retro, the kids will be confused. 

Kim is trying to assemble a kick-ass eighties play list right now. 

Any ideas?



  1. Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell
    Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - Wham
    Duran Duran (anything from the first 3/4 of Decade, their best of)
    Tina Turner - Better Be Good to Me
    Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel
    Walking on Broken Glass - Annie Lennox
    Just Like Heaven - The Cure
    Pour Some Sugar on Me - Def Leopard
    Keep Your Hands to Yourself - Georgia Satellites

    That's what popped into my head.

  2. They Might Be Giants - the entire Flood album

  3. Thanks Michelle, We've got a couple of those but there are songs there I haven't heard in years!


  4. I have tons of 'House of Hair' type stuff burned. Give me a shout if you want any of it. I have to leave by 2:30 for work.


Yell at me...
