OK. I’m feeling a little nostalgic tonight, and I’m in the mood to listen to some tunes. I’ve been firing on all cylinders today, and now I’m ready to let my hair down. I thought I’d be a bit frivolous tonight and share my 80’s music crushes.
My Top Ten 80’s Crushes
Let’s get this one on the table first. Vanity was my NUMBER 1 crush. I had a poster her above my headboard. I watched the Last Dragon about a thousand times, just to see her. I didn’t really care too much for her music, but wow, did she capture my imagination.
1 Nasty Girl – Vanity 6
This is really the only song I liked of her, although I did own the one and only album they made. Watching her on screen in the Last Dragon is what mad me fall in love with her. My ultimate fantasy girl.
The rest of these I’ll put in any order, because after Vanity, the rest didn’t matter.
2 Opposites Attract – Paula Abdul
3 Like a Virgin – Madonna
4 The Glamorous Life – Sheila E.
Another Prince protege.
5 Total Eclipse of the Heart
6 What I Am – Edie Brickell
7 How Will I Know – Whitney Houston
If I was going to pick a number to crush, Whitney would be it. I lost count of how many times I watched this video.
8 I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll – Joan Jett & the Black Hearts
I love a good rock chick. Joan would hit the number 3 slot on this list.
9 The Sweetest Taboo
10 Call Me – Blondie
Rounding out the list is Debbie Harry
Thanks for taking this little nostalgic road trip with me back to the 80s to meet my crushes.1
