We’re 80s chicks through and through and you may have noticed our love of playing some of our favorite 80s songs in our #unlockingthecar vids! Recently, in a moment of brilliance, Lora decided we should jot down our combined top 10 and throw in some pics of us in all of our big hair glory. And so here we are. You’re welcome. And happy #throwbackThursdayonsteroids!
P.S. To narrow down your all-time favorite 80s songs to FIVE is incredibly hard!! We want to hear from you, our fellow eighties-era friends – tell us your choices in the comments.
Bev ⓵ A-Ha – Take on Me
Loved them. Had many of their posters on my red heart wallpapered bedroom walls! Oh Morten Harket, you Norwegian hunk. 😍
Lora ⓵ Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
Steve Perry. That’s all.
Lora ② Spandau Ballet – True
So true. Funny how it seems.
Bev ② Madonna – Crazy for You
Ahhh those awkward end of school disco slow dances.
Bev ③ Abba – Super Trouper
Abba are/is the best. The end.
Lora ③ Wham – Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
I practiced dancing like the backup singers hoping for my chance to go on tour with them. His voice, glorious. His hair, glorious.
Lora ④ Duran Duran – Save a Prayer
Nick Rhodes crushing back then. John Taylor now.
Bev ④ Howard Jones – No One Is to Blame
When I tell you it was a thrill to interview him, I mean it! The king of synth-pop!
Bev ⑤ Dexys Midnight Runners – Come on Eileen
A song prominent in the very height of my 80s glory; roller discos, leg warmers, teased hair, and all!
Lora ⑤ Psychedelic Furs – The Ghost in You
I don’t know why, but I still get goosies to this song.
