          We were almost going to hire an 80's cover band for our reception! What a hoot! Still haven't given up on the idea though...

          But to answer your question, anything by The Cure!

              My favorite 80's song is Michael Jackson's "Starting Something". And my favorite part of the whole song is when he sings "mamasaymamasamalacumsa" over and over and over again.

                  David insisted that we play "You Dropped a Bomb on Me" by The Gap Band at our reception...it was great! I STILL think of our wedding every time I hear that song!

                  "Here I Go Again" - Whitesnake

                  "Take On Me" - A-ha

                  "Don't Stop Believing" - Journey (really anything by Journey!)

                  "I Ran" - Flock of Seagulls

                  "You Shook Me All Night Long" - AC/DC (This was the ending song at our reception...EVERYone was on the floor shakin' it!)

                  "Livin' on a Prayer", "You Give Love a Bad Name" - Bon Jovi (again...pretty much anything Bon Jovi is fun!)

                  The Clash has some good songs. . .

                  "Time After Time" - Cyndi Lauper

                  David Bowie!!! "Let's Dance", "Golden Years" and "Fame" are some of my faves

                  "In Your Eyes" or "Sledgehammer" - Peter Gabriel

                  Queen!!!! Anything by Queen!

                  "Wake Me Up Before You Go-go" - Wham! (This one always makes me think of Zoolander now!)

                  "Bust a Move" - Young MC (Lol! C'mon...it's pretty entertaining?! )

                  I love 80's music!

                      Totally forgot an all-time favorite, Lips Like Sugar (Echo & the Bunnymen). Love it! Makes me sing every time.
