Heh, oh, really? Why not?

By the way, how in the world did I forget to include "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics in my list? *Smacks forehead* I loved that song when I was little. Still do.

After the charm of "She Drives Me Crazy" and "Good Thing" wore off, I realized how much his voice (and his face) annoyed me.

There is no way I could list my top 10 of the 80s because it would be tracks 1-10 on JT....I do know hands down however, my 2 favorite tunes from the 80s though.

One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head......I mean, come on, this song is sooo crazy that it's brilliant

Safety Dance - Men w/o Hats

I can't believe I forgot that song !! ... as I own it on a 45 single !

That also makes me think of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Relax"
as that 45 is right next to The Pet Shop Boys single ...
