Monday Mix: Ladies of the 80s

I'm always on a little bit of an eighties kick.

We tend to revolve our mixes more around a theme than a certain time period but today is somewhat of an exception. A few weekends ago "Mind Your Own Business" by Delta 5 came on in a bar and though it came out in 1979, it reminded me how I've always wanted to make a mix with the name "Ladies of the 80's." Not only is this a fabulous mix title that rhymes but the possibilities of content are seemingly endless. I used to think 80's music was silly but gradually over the years I've become a true sucker for anything reminiscent of big hair and dramatic make-up and hopefully you do too after listening:

1. "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - Cindy Lauper
2. "We Got The Beat" - The Go-Go's
3. "Like A Virgin" - Madonna
4. "Mind Your Own Business" - Delta 5
5. "In Your Room" - The Bangles
6. "Heart of Glass" - Blondie
7. "Cruel Summer" - Banarama
8. "Heartbreaker" - Pat Benatar
9. "Cities In The Dust" - Siouxsie and the Banshees
10. "Running Up That Hill" - Kate Bush
