Liza's October 80's Playlist

So it's no secret I'm an 80's fiend. Although I was born in 1984, I remember quite a lot from this amazing decade.... ESPECIALLY the music. My sister and I are former dancers and would blast some of the tunes below on our little pink cassette player. To this day, 80's music is always playing in my apartment and in my car. Anyways, I thought I'd do a little themed playlist this month and change it up a bit. Hope you like! I am kind of obsessed... Hahahaha. XO, Liza

Belinda is a classic 80's pop star. "Heaven is a Place on Earth" anyone? Yep that's by her too. She is fab.
Am I a major nerd for liking this adult contemporary 80's song? I think so... This tune though was kind of ruined for me when the blind guy on American Idol sang it. Agh, oh well.
Classic Cure song.
Favorite Def Leppard song hands down. 
EVERYONE knows this one, right? It's cliche, but I had to include it it my playlist.
Ahh Stevie Nicks how I love you. Alone or with Fleetwood Music, she is the best. She is SO young in this music video!
I couldn't decide whether I should include this song by Heart or "Alone." They are both great Heart hits.
The Bangles were definitely my sister and I's favorite girl group in the 80's. We honestly killed that cassette. Oh AND did anyone see them perform the other night on "Dancing with the Stars?" They sound EXACTLY the same.
No playlist is complete without Madonna, whether it's 80's or now! This song of hers is one of my faves.
RIP Michael. Such a talent. Love this song.
New Order's music is so soothing to me. Never get sick of it, especially this song. 
And to end, some Prince of course! One of my favorite songs of all time. I saw the Joffrey Ballet years and years ago do a whole ballet to Prince music. Let me tell you... it was unbelievable. The dance to this song was simply gorgeous.
