all 80's week...

all 80’s week…

in celebration of the forthcoming Fayetteville After Five’s celebration of the 80’s with regional favorites Suicide Blonde I am making my workweek all 80’s by creating a new radio station on my Pandora. (Pandora is WONDERFUL if you working folks haven’t clued in yet.)

80’s music makes me gloriously happy in a way that no other music can. I was raised on Q98– you know, back when Beyonce wasn’t on the radio. I revert back to that gleeful carefree state of being a kid, and as the triumphant dance opening of Madonna’s “Borderline” opens, all my work worries fade away! You should try it! Guaranteed stress free day at work awaits– and all it takes is a little 80’s tunage!

Seriously, though– if not eager to try out 80’s music while at your desk (oh, cutting crew, ms. lauper, and night ranger– how you make every little rotten thing about life seem okay…) at least come out to our FREE concert this Thursday, June 18th at Festival Park and rock out to all the classic hits of the 80’s and rejoice that you finally did throw that Members Only jacket away! Gates open at 5pm– festivities begin at 5:30pm. Bring your friends and fam– enjoy a variety of food vendors, and frosty cold one from Bud Light!

And in the vein of shameful self-revelations– share your favorite outlandish 80’s memory. What horrendous outfit did you wear? What song did you slow dance to at your wedding, thinking that it was *the* best song ever? Or, better yet, what song took you tabletop? What ridiculous geometrical shaped furniture piece did you buy? We wanna hear them! Let’s take a moment to think back to a simpler time– of Reaganomics and the rubik’s cube and, most importantly Duran Duran and Devo!
