10 on the 10th


Mer is hosting her first 10 on the 10th today, and true to form, I can't figure out what to post ten of! You wouldn't think this would be so hard would you. :) Thinking, thinking...

A few weeks ago, I was telling my husband that I was shocked and slighly appalled that we were missing certain songs from our music library (we are iTunes folks all the way). Specifically, the lack of 80's music was glaring ... and as I am a child of the 80's there were certain songs that I felt that (over time) must be added or our children would be scarred for life because they had never heard them and they would miss that link with their mother's past. Okay, slight over-exaggeration, but still. :)
So, in no particular order, and most definitely probably forgetting something that will strike me as soon as I push the post button, ten songs that I LOVED in high school:

1. You're the Inspiration, Chicago
2. Only in My Dreams, Debbie Gibson Oh, yes, I loved Debbie Gibson and so wanted to be her. :)
3. Invisible Touch, Genesis

4. Anything by Huey Lewis. Power of Love? Hip to Be Square? Huey was so cool.
5. Soldier of Love, Donny Osmond.
6. How Will I Know?, Whitney Houston. Big voice, big hair, big song. I knew that one backwards and forwards.
I'm Forever Your Girl, Paula Abdul.
Never Gonna Give You Up, Rick Astley.
9. Kyrie Eleison, Mr. Mister.
10. La Bamba, Los Lobos. I realize this song wasn't technically an 80's song, but it was rereleased then and I felt pretty cool being able to sing a whole song in Spanish. Go me. :)

To link up your list of 10, visit Mer's! (Any songs that would have been on your list? And if you were only 3 in the 80's *coughlexiecough*, please don't make me feel old!) :)

    Popped over via Mer. Loved your list!

  3. OH, how could we NOT want to be Debbie Gibson? Great walk down memory lane. But where's Duran Duran??? :)

  4. Oh - I need to show your list to my hubby. He is a HUGE 80's music fan. Love the one by Whitney. And Chicago? Oh my.

    So nice to meet you!

  5. Girl, you gotta' get some Def Leppard on here. I do love me some 80s big hair arena rock. And Debbie.

  6. I love them all! I was a little old to like Debbie Gibson (I was in college) but I did so anyway!!

  7. GREAT list!!! You seem to be missing Michael Jackson though (Beat It, Billie Jean, Man in the Mirror) and the Footloose soundtrack. Also, how 'bout some Madonna? Oh my gosh...there are so many I could add. This was a fun blast from the past!

    Thanks for playing, Stephanie!!!

  8. fun list. going to do mine later today.

  9. Wow! These all brought up great memories from way back when! Good list.

  10. the whole joshua tree album (U2, released in 88, the year i was born) would be my list. :)

  11. Oooh! Great list. As a fellow child of the 80's, I totally concur!

    What a great list! I also wanted to be Debbie Gibson.

    Just thought I would let you know that I am taking the Walt Disney book back to the library tomorrow. I really enjoyed it.

    Have a great evening!

  13. Great list.........I remember them all! LOL My fave when I was in high school was that Billy Squier song. I don't even know if I'm spelling his last name correct. ROFL Oh and there was a song from Leif Garrett that I used to play on the 45 over and over. OK, I just dated myself with the whole 45 thing. LOL

  14. You still love Debbie Gibson, Huey Lewis, and Rick Astley? You're a woman after my own heart!

  15. I'm a child of the 80's and I remember almost all of these. Paula Abdul and Debbie Gibson were my favorites, and I always sang their songs in lip sync contests with my cousins. Those were the days!
