80’s Gold


Take a good look at these songs. I need them for my iPod. And I will have them, all of them, even if I have to buy them two or three at a time out of the grocery money. You just can’t put a price on good music. (Well, I guess iTunes can.)

There’s always something there to remind me.

  1. Awesome! You do need those on your ipod. It makes me happy just thinking about it! Hey, here’s a cool piece of trivia I learned last night. Musicians apparently love iTunes. Why? A singer/songwriter we went to see last night told me they actually get a larger cut of the revenue from iTunes than if you bought their CD in a store! I don’t feel guilty anymore for downloading so much music!

  2. I think I have an 80’s Gold CD! I won it at one of our MOPS parties – guess someone broke up the set. Michael ripped it and put the music on our itunes library, so I can listen as often as I like šŸ™‚

  3. I have pretty much all of those. The older I get, the better they sound. If you ever need an 80’s mix CD, send me an email… I take requests!

  4. I must say… we children of the 80s did have a fantastic selection of music… and it was FUN.

    Even if it sometimes makes me cringe a little bit now because it is so silly.

    Remember FUN?


    Going to rock out with Cyndi & Billy & Depeche & Wall of Voodoo now…

  5. I was a young adult of the 80’s: 26 when 1980 came and 36 when 1989 ended.

    80’s Gold would represent to me

    I love 80’s music. More than the sixties (don’t tell my peers)

    More than the seventies (shhhhhhh)

    80’s music makes me hungry, hungry like a wolf!!

    80’s music makes me want to put on denim overalls with no shirt on and cry out: Come on Eileen

    80’s music just makes me say when I am made fun of by my peers: “I Don’t Care Any More”

    For me 80’s music was a Graceland.

    I love it!

  6. Heehee, Raymond! You are so right! I feel the same way (except instead of overalls with no shirt, I’d wear a torn t-shirt under a mesh shirt, and several skirts layered on top of one another, a la Cyndi Lauper.)

    Phil–I am tempted to take you up on that very kind offer!

    SoL–Thanks for the bit of music industry trivia! Makes me feel better, too. And I think being able to download individual songs probably forces artists to work harder to fill albums with high quality music, instead of a couple of hits and eight fillers. Everybody wins!

    Jennifer–You are a lucky girl! Hold on tight to that album–its value can only go up. šŸ˜€

    Karyn–Amen! You have to love music that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It really was fun, wasn’t it?

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to try to catch the deluge in a paper cup.

  7. Katrina,

    You are so funny! I think, though, you could perhaps buy a sirius radio thingy for the cost of these albums and just play the 80’s station all the time commercial free!!
