Jen Kehl at My Skewed View and Kristi at Finding Ninee host Twisted MixTape Tuesday, a blog hop that’s all about music. The premise is to create a five song mix based on the week’s theme. (You can click on the button above if you’d like to play along).
Here’s Jen’s instructions for today’s topic: If you were going to make a mix for a friend in the Eighties, what would it contain? This is NOT a best of. This is If You Were You, in the 80’s, and You Were Making A Mix Tape For A Friend (on any topic) What Would It Be?
The 80’s Part 1 covered the songs that were meaningful to me in my high school years, so for Part 2, we’ll hit the college years. There really weren’t a lot of pivotal moments during college. I was either studying, working, drinking, or getting into or out of relationships. I decided for my college years to focus on songs that remind me of certain people in my life during the last half of the 80’s. I’ll stick with five songs, three of which are reminiscent of relationships, one of my best friend, and one of a really (really) intense weekend fling. I’ll let it remain a mystery as to which is which.
1. The Sweetest Taboo – Sade (1985).
2. Under the Milky Way – The Church (1988).
3. Surrender to Me – Robin Zander & Ann Wilson (1988).
4. Like the Way I Do – Melissa Etheridge (1988).
5. Angel Eyes – Jeff Healey Band (1989).
I hope you enjoyed this week’s little interlude because next week, we’re entering the 90’s and I’m going back to hitting the rock…hard.
