80s music

Earworm: Banarama – Cruel Summer

Continuing our female earworm week, I give you an 80’s trio of women that pumped out a few hits.  Here’s a catchy tune that’s sort of inline with our weather now.  Some reason, summer temp’s are still creeping in, and I thought this song was very fitting.

Earworm: Debbie Gibson – Shake Your Love

I’m going to start off with female artist earworm.  So starting today, I will be posting up songs that I find myself bopping my head to, and end up singing the rest of the day when I hear it on the radio/satellite radio. I’ll begin with 80’s pop icon, Debbie Gibson.  We heard this on the radio at work today, and we basically had a Debbie Gibson morning, and well, I’ve been shaking my head to her love all day.  Enjoy!

 

Earworm: “Take on Me” by A-ha

Okay, when you insult Take on Me, you cross the line. This is by far one of my favorite songs, and I am sorry, but if you don’t think that it is one of the greatest songs ever (or even argue that it is not music), you have no taste in music. It is a necessity on a list of top songs. For me, it would be number 7.

My buddy, who I shall refer to as Bruce for the sake of anonymity, and I were skateboarding at an indoor skatepark, and the stereo system started blasting 80s and 90s jams, and this classic hit was the first on the playlist.
I screamed, “YES THIS IS BOMB!” and Bruce said, “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! THIS ISN’T MUSIC!”
..Oh Bruce, your musical horizons must be broadened.

Of course, none can argue that this music video is fantastic.

By the way… “HIT IT MR. BUTTERS!”
