What is this? This is the first in a series of 12 cross-over posts from my other blog, Prof deBock Dance Party commemorating the top songs of the 1980’s.
Count? 8 of 12!
Song: Girls Just Want to Have Fun!
Artist: Cyndi Lauper
Comment: This song was popular the first year I moved up to Vermont. In my book, this might be the quintessential 80’s song! And did you know professional wrestler Captain Lou Albino played the dad in the music video? How cool is that?
The list so far:
- Celebration by Kool and the Gang
- Rock the Casbah by The Clash
- Our Lips are Sealed by The Go-Gos
- Jack and Diane by John Cougar (aka John Mellencamp)
- Billie Jean by Michael Jackson
