Welcome back to this week’s countdown! If you missed the previous songs, you can go back and check them out. We were off to a great start yesterday. So, let’s Return to the week ending February 28, 1987, and see if it continues to be just as good.
Understandibly, this is Europe’s signature song. This is the epitome of ’80s rock, complete with keyboards, guitar, soaring vocals, and big hair. But, Europe is so much more than this song. They have several other great songs (just on this album alone).
I still love this worldwide smash hit from Starship. It was featured in the movie Mannequin. Yesterday, in my opening segment, I mentioned having a girlfriend at this time. We went to see Mannequin in the theater. However, we were in the back of the theater making out most of the time, so I have no idea what happened. I’ll have to go check out that movie again.
That wraps up today’s list of songs. So far I’m loving it this week! How about you? Come back tomorrow as we continue the countdown.
Hi Everybody. I’ve been so tired lately, that I can’t concentrate enough to right a decent article. But, I still want to share with you. While sitting at my desk at work all day, I usually either listen to podcasts or music. Today I decided to play some songs on my iPod. As of this second, there are 12,782 songs on my iPod.
So, let’s have some fun. I will hit the ‘Shuffle’ button, and share the first ten songs that get played. I will not skip any, so it is possible that there will be some non-80s songs. The odds are even greater that there will be at least a few ’80s songs on here. Let’s get started. Hopefully, this will not be too embarrassing. Feel free to make fun of me if you want. I stand behind my music! Wait..let me make sure there is no Justin Bieber. Just kidding, I really didn’t need to check. There is a 100% chance that you will NOT hear any Justin Bieber here. I really hope there are songs on here that you will enjoy. And you may even discover new music. Here..We..Go!!
“Heart and Soul (Live)” – Huey Lewis & The News
This was on a Sports special edition that I downloaded from iTunes
“Crazy Train (Live)” by Ozzy Osbourne
From Ozzy’s Live at Budokan album
“Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Warrant
In my opinion, Warrant is one of the most underrated bands of all time. This is a really good song off of the Cherry Pie album.
“Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” by Patty Smyth and Don Henley
I still love this song. Can’t get enough of Patty Smyth.
“Mary, Mary” by Run DMC
That’s right, I love Run DMC! Why you buggin’?
“867-5309/Jenny” by Tommy Tutone
The odds are pretty good that there would be at least one ’80s essential on this list.
“Trial By Fire” by Kiss
One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite Kiss albums – Asylum
“Black Water” by The Doobie Brothers
What a great song to relax to!
“Love Chaser” by Europe
Here is another underrated hair band. This is a really good song you may not have heard of unless you have The Final Countdown album.
“I Will Not Go Quietly” by Don Henley
Awesome rocker by Henley, with Axl Rose on the backing vocals.
Well that was something completely different. I hope you enjoyed. And phew, nothing embarrassing! I may have to do this again sometime. Let me know what you thought of this article.
And it would be great if you guys listed out some songs that are on your iPod too.
