Mix Tape Tuesday – It’s an 80s-palooza!

This is part one of a three-volume 80s Mix Tape I’m doing. I thought I’d kick off the series with some good ol’ “stuff you still hear on the radio” 80s hits (plus a couple rockin’ movie tunes, for good measure). Next week I’ll be dipping into the more obscure (or at least what isn’t being played too often anymore). Then I’ll close it out with my favorite 80s television themes (not including the ones the lovely Miss Erin gave us in a previous Mix Tape).

So, get ready to party like it’s 1999, because here come the 80s.

  1. “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough” ALWAYS reminds me of when you told me about the octopus while we were walking down the Loara parking lot. Good times…

    And great playlist, as usual. Especially #5! Sigh. I love me some Falco.
