Happy Monday! Alex Cavanaugh is having a Music Blogfest which seems like just the thing to beat the Monday blues. Here’s my top ten favorite songs (in random order):
1. Vogue- Madonna
2. Raspberry Beret- Prince
3. These Boots Are Made for Walking- Nancy Sinatra
4. Anything by Yo-Yo Ma (Love him!)
5. When the World Ends- Dave Matthews
6. Come Away With Me- Norah Jones
7. Walk Like An Egyptian- The Bangles (You knew that had to be on the list!)
8. We Didn’t Start the Fire- Billy Joel
9. Dancing Queen- Abba
10. Say Hey (I Love You)- Michael Franti
Can you tell I like the ’80’s? Weird clothes, good music! Have a great Monday, everyone!
The '80's did have some good and interesting music. I like Steve Martin's King Tut.
Thoughts in Progress
Mason- I have King Tut on my iPod! Talk about goofy!
We didn't start the fire?! That's my go to song when I want to get pumped about something. I'm not sure why just something about it makes me really gung ho for life.
Oh man .. Madonna, Prince, The Bangles. LOVE!
ohman! walk like an egyptian!!!! my sister and i used to go wild over that song when we were kids!!! 🙂 awesome list! 🙂
Loved seeing Walk Like An Egyptian on your list. Yeah, it wasn't surprising but it still brought a smile to my face!
These Boots Are Made for Walkin'…
what a great selection of music
thanks for the melody's,
I loved the 80's. Still do.
I was in a rather chi-chi antique store over the weekend and for some reason, Nancy's "Boots" came on over the store speakers instead of the usual classical. Half the store started singing along, it was hysterical!
My husband suggested I put We didn't start the fire. Well, I'm glad someone did because that's such a cool song.
The Bangles Yes!!!!!!!!!!! Love love love that song!!!! Lots of great picks on your list!!
Good 80's music is hard to beat! I would have been disappointed if you hadn't added #7. 🙂
Norah Jones is great listening. Enjoy many of your picks.
It's easy to get obsessed about history.
Great list…good to see Nancy Sinatra and ABBA!
Great list! I love every single one of those songs.
I love your list! The 80's rocked! 🙂
Definitely an 80's list!
Thanks for participating.
I love your list…and I'm an 80s fan too. 🙂
HEhe.. I love the 80's too! And I love all of those songs!
I wondered if you'd choose Walk Like an Egyptian!! 🙂
I love these songs – I'm such an 80s girl as well 🙂
we did a project in HS about we didn't start the fire. We had to find out what every line meant.
I knew Walk Like An Egyptian would HAVE to be on your list (lol).
Such an awesome list. So many memories . .
Come and get your newest award!! It's a pretty one. LOL. 🙂
YES!! *pumps fist* Another DMB disciple!
Love your list! We did a routine to Walk Like an Egyptian my senior year of high school so every time I hear that song, I find myself doing a few of the moves…only in the privacy of my home, though.
Some good tunes here. "These Boots…" is one I haven't seen on any of the other lists yet–classic!
Make sure you check my Wednesday post!
Tossing It Out
I love the 80s too! Great choices.
