Son of 30 songs from the 80s day 1 (21-30)

30- "Eat It" - 'Weird' Al Yankovich

I have a sense of humor. So sue me.

29 - "Life Is Life" - Laibach

70s light rock standard transformed into a Wagnerian ... uh ... opus.

28 - "Salt in my Tears" -

This was a top 10 hit, so why was it out of print last I looked?

27 - "You Spin Me Round" - Dead Or Alive

I almost won soda for knowing this. "Brand New Lover" is a better song, but not nearly as identified with the 80s.

26 - "Run Run Away" - Slade

Last gasp from these British rockers known for creative spelling. Gee, sounded like Casey Kasem there. No long distance dedication today, though. Actually, Casey would have said "see chameleon, laying there in the sun" as if was a HEAVY lyric and dripping withdeep meaning.

25 - "Words" - Missing Persons

Vocalist Dale Bozzio designed all her own costumes, well demonstrating the wisdom of choosing music rather than fashion as a career path.

24 - "River Run Dry" - The Family

Another Prince project.

23 - "Manic Monday" - The Bangles

I like this one better in German, but I only heard it on a trip to Germany.

22 - "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" - Red Hot Chili Peppers

From the days before they discovered if they did ballady type stuff, they would sell more records.

21 - "Take Off" - Bob and Doug McKenzie

This one has Geddy Lee on it. Probably one of the greatest novelty songs ... EVER. Had to be there, maybe. Hoser.

Tomorrow: nasty girls, monsters, men in motion, and the only song to ever use 'parthenogenesis' in the lyrics.
