Thursday Thirteen - 80s Love Songs

A lot of the 80s love songs stand out for me because they are a reminiscent of my childhood, young love and puppy love. ; )  Although some were hopelessly cheesy, it was also a period of raw energy. The 80s songs also exemplify a musical style which is fresh and bold that is why still a lot of people are drawn to the music of this era. For Thursday Thirteen, here is a list of my favorite 80s love songs.

  1. Hello - Lionel Richie 
  2. Zoom - Fat Larry's Band
  3. Endless Love - Diana Ross and Lionel Richie
  4. Cherish - Kool and The Gang
  5. Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon
  6. All Out of Love - Air Supply 
  7. Sailing - Christopher Cross
  8. The Search is Over - Survivor
  9. In My Dreams - REO Speedwagon
  10. You Got It All - The Jets
  11. Take My Breath Away - Berlin
  12. It Might Be You - Stephen Bishop
  13. St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion) - John Parr

Ah the 80s. I am embarrassed to say, I was a big Air Supply fan then....I can still sing just about all of their songs.

Some of these are favorites. My very first slow dance was to "Hello".

One missing--Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Thanks for coming by my TT.

Happy T13...that is a nice list...and the flashbacks associated with them are both good and bad. ;)

I'm not afraid to admit that #13 is one of my personal anthems. And Sailing...enter the cheese...still kind of gives me goosebumps.

Why did I just admit to that??

Whoa. How far have I come from all those years when I couldn't get enough of those ballads.

It's sort of scary to revisit it!
