That’s My Jam: 80s Songs

I know that I already posted today for Training Tuesday [link-up if you haven’t already!] & am completely pumped to be hosting it with my girl, Abbey, but in true Kanye style I just couldn’t not be involved in one of my favorite link-ups of all time. So, you get two posts in one day. Aren’t you a lucky duck?

Alright, here goes! Hanging with Katie from State of Change & Shauna from theAwesomes for -

80s style!


I thought I’d get into the spirit and dress the part for the vlog. I wish my hair would have been bigger, but I live in Texas so I’ll probably have another legit shot at it. I’ll link to the songs I talk about below, but there’s a bunch of them so I won’t post all the videos. I tried cutting this one down on time since my last one was nearly 20 minutes, but uh, I apparently have a hard time with this.

So, the next 16 minutes of your life will either be life-changing or sorely missed. Enjoy!

Also, my double chin makes an appearance more than enough in this video. She obviously doesn’t like to be ignored.

  1. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
    Oh Cyndi, your hair kills me.
  2. Physical – Olivia Newton John
    Seriously, you guys, you need to watch this video. The workout gear, it’s awesome.
  3. Pour Some Sugar On Me – Def Leppard
    I don’t think they’re literally talking about sugar, but what do I know. I was only born in the 80s.
  4. Do You Think I’m Sexy – Rod Stewart
    I’m pretty sure if 80s Rod Stewart were a woman and very pregnant, I would totally be his doppelganger. Proof.
  5. Here I Go Again – Whitesnake
    I really think we need to remake this video – any one in? Seriously. It would be epic.
  6. Jessie’s Girl – Rick Springfield [my version is from Glee though]
    Why so serious Rick-ers? I’ve never seen eyes so intense. Except, you know, on a serial killer perhaps. Whoa, looking at the video with that perspective it’s really kind of creepy…
  7. Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
    I want to make babies with this song. Totally one of my favorites.
  8. Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr.
    I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
  9. Hit Me With Your Best Shot – Pat Benetar
    Oops. This song actually came out in 1979. I thought it was 1980 – oh well, it survived well into the 80s so it can be legit, right?

What’s your favorite 80s jam?

I'm currently mid video, and I'm dying.This is basically my commentary as I watch.

I hated HATED 80s music, except for hair bands. And Journey. Because. It's Journey. Classic rock, ftw.
I hated Madonna and Cyndi Lauper and Olivia Newton John and Michael Jackson and every other iconic 80s pop star. I don't even know why.

-Loved the story about you as a mascot.
-Nice eyebrow wiggle.
-"Jessie's Girl" always bothered me because my best friend was named Jessie. And that's the girl way to spell it. It should have been "Jesse".
- Don't Stop Believin' is a good song for EVERYTHING.
- After seeing Ghostbusters for the first time, I was always scared of turning on the water in my bath tub because I was afraid of the oozey-ness. I was a wimp.
-Impressive scar.
-I want to go to Texas now.

The end.

Ghostbusters?! That, my dear, is why you rock. :-)

1) I love you and I want to move so we can be together forevahhhh (creepy?)

2) Hair bands. YES.

3) Don't be embarrassed about your Glee song. Closet Glee fan here, and straight up if I was not married..Cory Monteith....

4) Your 80s wardrobe/style is amazing.

5)Your arm scar is badass.

6) I love you and let's karaoke. Except you will have to get me drunk before then. LOL.

That is all.

Oh my goodness you are just to funny and too adorable.
my two favorite lines:
"Unless we want you to settle down and marry us"
"Don't get me wrong I jam the hell out of it"
I loved that you put Ghostbusters on your list!
Also, I'm pretty sure you should come to Asia and we can do some KTV here because it's legendary.

If you ever decide to go lesbo I should be your first date. Not because I want to like get in your pants or anything but just cause I'm sure you'd be so fucking fun to have a date with. And just so you know, that first date would have to be at a Karaoke club cause you've got the voice an 80's band groupie lol.

Thanks for the laughs. Loved how you kept using the hairspray. You must have been high as fuck on those fumes haha.

You are so awesome. I don't even think that phrase describes it well enough.

I love your hair and I love the songs you chose! Totally jam-able. Pour Some Sugar on Me? One of my faves.

Rock on girl.
