…it was Valentines day, 1970.

thanks for celebrating it, mom!

happy birthday to both of us i guess πŸ˜‰

brent decided to play 80’s music all day friday to make me feel young. sweet, right? πŸ˜• well, friday on twitter a bunch of us had a great convo about the 80’s. and as much as we all like to say it was dreadful…there is something about that decade that when reflected upon, brings a smile to your face. dont deny it.

my sweet sis, heidi, found this video montage of 80’s video clips. my favorite can be found at around the 3 min 50 sec mark.

whats your favorite 80’s song?

    Oh my gosh, I’m going to be watching that video a million times… MEMORIES!!! Sitting with my brothers in the kitchen by the huge boom box hitting “pause” on the record button during the commercials of American Top 40 to make a mix tape of every one of these songs.

    Jack and Diane, baby. It was scandalous in our Catholic school. And mom made us do jumping jacks if we were listening to Let’s Get Physical because we were trying to convince her it was about working out… I think Mom gave up once Madonna got popular πŸ™‚

    And my friend Sue Ann went as Boy George for Halloween… so funny.

    Oh, and Tamalita… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

    i was obviously quite young when i went through the 80’s, but i was the BIGGEST 80’s rockin’ 5 year old there ever was. i embraced that decade like it was do or die.

    don’t make fun…but my favorite 80’s song is most definitely a-ha’s take on me. i STILL rock out to that song. regularly.

    although so many of these fall into my faves category. for reals. this video had me jammin’. it was only embarrassing for those around me.

    I remember NOTHING about the 80’s πŸ˜†

    Except the awful swimsuits, the horrid perms, standing on top of my swingset singing “like a virgin” and not knowing WHAT a virgin was, my mom locking us out of our house so we’d stay in the backyard and we listened to Dolly Pardon (yes, Dolly) on our little radio, and the horrid short shorts my mom was always wearing, even if she DID have the body for them…those are NEVER cool. 😐

    A big Happy Birthday to ya!

    Favorite 80’s song…boy that is tough….Probably ACDC Back In Black (early 70’s being August 1980) or anything by Elvis Costello or The Fixx

    Happy Birthday! I’ll be 40 Friday, my husband had the best 80’s party for me Friday. I love the video, certainly brings back memories! 40 is the new 20…I’ve decided to EMBRACE it…somehow! : )

    Happy birthday, Tam! What a fun video!! I’m still listening, but so far my favorites from this walk down memory lane are “How Will I Know” by Whitney Houston and “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. Oh, but you know what else I love? “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” Love. It. πŸ™‚
