Was the Bon Jovi video too much for you? I thought it might add a little something to your day. No problem whatsoever. My old boyfriend blasted that song from his shiny black Fiero EVERY morning as he turned into the school parking lot. How cool was he? (Not very, actually, be he was really sweet!)
So, how many of these chart topping songs from the 80's do YOU remember?
Can you tell me who sang them? **Bonus points if you know who the Bon Jovi blaring boyfriend was!)

2. Bette Davis Eyes (1981)
3. Waiting For A Girl Like You (1982)

Look! It's me and my BFF's looking AWESOME in our butt-ugly neon shirts, ties and big ole hair! I sooooo wanted that denim jacket. And Laura's hair! And Paige's height! And the pink bandana in Cindy's hair.
What, those songs too easy? Then how about THESE?
1. Misunderstanding (1980)
2. Urgent (1981)

Aww...Junior Prom, 1987. Can you believe I made the poor boy wear a pink bow tie? Can you believe he didn't mind? And can you believe he was TWENTY years OLD when he took me to my prom? What the heck? I wouldn't let my baby girl date a twenty year old for ANYTHING! Are you reading this DD?? Cause it WON'T be happening, girlie. Never mind what Mommy and Daddy did...things are different these days. When you're 40, you can certainly date a 44 year old. OK? Good. Glad we agree.
Senior pictures. So glad I went to a school that DIDN'T require yearbook photos to be taken in ugly black drapes or ruffly shirts and bow ties. We got to pick our pictures. Thank goodness I got to be forever immortalized in a humongous shaker sweater from The Limited and a boring plaid skirt! Sitting on a cube? Wearing my sweetie's class ring that was wrapped with a spool of blue thread and clear nail polish! We don't know what happened to his class ring. If you're out there and you're reading this and he gave it to you 25 years ago when we broke up for a couple of months...call me!
OK, that's all the retro I can stand for now. I'll put up the answers for the songs on Friday.
