Bring on the Neon!

Okay, I'm going to date myself by saying the music of the 80's are what formed what can be considered my very unusual tastes in music. 

Or, if you're my husband, you can tell me I have no taste, but I digress.  Hah. 

It was a time of experimental music, crossovers galore, and some of the weirdest lyrics ever heard.

I wish I was in Tijuana eating barbecued iguana.

Everyone's a super hero, everyone's a Captain Kirk

I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

Five bonus points to anyone who can name the songs those lyrics belong to.  Lyrics, by the way, that I sadly did not have to Google.  Um, thank you, Spotify?

In addition to oddball music, we were gifted with some amazing talent:

Bryan Adams

Hall & Oats

Billy Joel

And some of these fabulous songs:

"Safety Dance" - Men Without Hats

"Break My Stride" - Matthew Wilder

"Video Killed the Radio Star" - The Buggles

And an honorary mention - "Bad Boys" by Wham!  A song I never even knew existed until my kid took a History of Pop Music class this year.  She's officially a George Michael fan.  Gotta say, she's definitely my kid.  :D
