ok, so I had to help my friend with this thing for the alumni webpages for her school. So I stole the idea from her, and I thought it'd be interesting if we all filled it out with 80s songs of our choice... The songs don't have to blatantly make sense for each category, just fill it was 80s songs that you like. Here is mine:

Opening credits: If you leave - OMD

Average day: Take on me Aha, Come on Eileen-Dexy's midnight runners

First date:Mad About You - Belinda Carlisle

Love scene: Take my breath away -Berlin

Breaking up: You give love a bad name- Bon Jovi

Secret love: Just like Heaven- The Cure, Jessie's Girl- Rick Springfield

Life's okay: Don't stop believin' -Journey

Mental breakdown: I'm on fire -Bruce Springsteen

Driving: 99 red balloons -Nena

Deep thought: Don't get me wrong -The Pretenders, Time after time -Cyndi Lauper

Looking back: Always Somethmg There To Remind Me - Naked Eyes

Partying: Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car - Billy Ocean, All night long- Lionel Ritchie

Happy dance: Footloose - Kenny Loggins

Regretting: Careless Whisper- Wham!

Long night: Drive- The Cars

Closing credits: Ceremony- New Order
*That's it! I'm so gonna be like Angela Bower...except with better clothes.*
