867-5309

This is the Top 100 songs of the 80's as compiled by VH1.
I watched this tonight - Well, I've watched three episodes so far, but with all of the crazy dorky dancing I've doing and the singing into the remote control, I'm guessing I'll finish watching the marathon.

Two hours later, I'm just now beginning the last 20.

Pour Some Sugar On Me was my favorite song in 1988... I remember telling my sisters that I was going to buy the music video of the song, because I loved it so much. Instead I bought the cassette single. My friend Steve was at a research center near Kalamazoo, MI and I went to see him for the afternoon - I had that single in the car. I played it ten times if I played it once. That song literally made my heart beat faster. I know it's totally sexual, but I don't care. lol I love it. I'm so glad it was #2.

OK, the marathon is over. I'm tired and totally full of 80's nostalgia. I'm going to end up dreaming about proms, music, dances, old flames, and nights on the town. I'm looking forward to it!

Here you go - Here's VH1's Top 100 songs (as voted on by VH1 fans) of the 1980's.

Have a great day!

Bahama Shores Mama said...

Oh Bahama - Twice?? Really?? Oh good. :^) It is a nice collection of music.

Sarah, Thanks! Glad you liked my blog. I'm having a lot of fun with it.

I normally listen to Talk Radio when I'm in the car or I listen to motivational stuff on CD, rarely do I listen to music. It has been so much fun the past few days to have music streaming through my brain.
