Monday's Music Moves Me 11/25/13

Well, hey there! It is Monday and the start of the week toward Thanksgiving here in the U.S.
It is also time once again for Monday's Music Moves Me hosted by Xmas Dolly, with co-host of Stacy, Colette,Cathy, and me.

This week we usually would have a freebie but we had one more former Spotlight Dancer theme before December to do. So, it was decided by the head honcho that her theme was happening this week. It is a fun one too...select songs you listened to in high school!

Well, now, I have to tell you, I am truly an 80's gal. I was a "mallrat" if there ever was one.
I entered high school in August of 1982 and graduated in May of 1986.
Yes, I can claim that to my 15 seconds of fame.

So, I am ready to hop in my Delorean and crank up my radio with some tunes. Get ready because they were "totally awesome"!

Let me select my first tape with a "totally rad" #1 song from 1983.

"Like, O My God" I could "totally chill" to anything Michael Jackson sung but in 1984 he teamed up with  this "most excellent" singer for this #1 song. Let me put it in my Sony Walkman for you.





In 1985, there were so many songs to "veg out" with. However, the one #1 song that was "fresh" "to the max" was this one. I could even find it on MTV!





By 1986, I was "stoked" because I was a senior and ready to "book". Of course the music continued to be "gnarly". One such #1 song was this one that even people might have break danced to.





Before I an "wiggin" out and throw my Rubix cube due to not understanding of the thing, I have one more item to offer you from my "bitchin' " years in the '80's.

 This would have been me in 1988 with my most "totally tubular" Dudette. She was 1 year old here.



Look at that hair! "Gag me with a spoon!"

Make sure to link up and visit these "bodacious" people. "That's the ticket!"

  1. I remember all of these, but I didn't listen to them in high school. You're young. BTW, your link is messed up on the hop.

  2. These are all fabulous songs. While you were in high school, I was in college ('80-'83) and then I was a working gal. I totally love the 80s era! It's always great to dance with you on Monday's Music Moves Me. I count myself blessed to have you amongst my circle of blog friends. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I swear I had that exact Sony walkman!! And the rubik's cube too -- which I did manage to solve, but sure I did not break any world's record in the doing.
    I think We are the World was one of the most watched videos - not just for the song - but so you could pick out all your favourite artists at the time.

  4. Hahah! I remember Rock Me Amadeus! Guess we listened to about the same music. I was in high school 1984 to 1988.
