Tune In Tuesday (56)

Tune In Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Ginger @ GReads so you should head on over and link up! It is a great way to bounce from blog to blog and discover what others are listening to! I love music but there is so much out there that I haven’t heard of before. That being said, feel free to leave a link to your Tune-In Tuesday post!

This past weekend I attended 80′s Fest with a few of my friends and it basically rocked our socks off! 80′s Fest is this weekend long event in a town right next to us in which you dress up in 80′s attire, look at 80′s memorabilia, listen to some AMAZING 80′s cover bands (Rock Star and The Square Pegz), dance your little butts off, AND raise a ton of money for cancer research. As you can tell, this is by far one of the most epic of things to occur in this boring, little Michigan town. I am a 90′s child by birth but in my heart, I know I am an 80′s child. The music, the clothing, the movies, just EVERYTHING shouts Katelyn to me. So since I have been in such an 80′s mood lately, I will try my best to get all of you in an 80′s mood as well by having you listen to some of my favorite songs!

p.s. There will be pictures at the end of our radical 80′s Fest get-ups (which may be a tad bit different from what 80′s clothing really looked like)

Pour Some Sugar On Me by The Maine (Def Leppard Cover)

I love The Maine AND this song so very much so when I figured out they had covered it I just about died!

Here I Go Again by Whitesnake

They just don’t make videos like that any more.

Time After Time by Quietdrive (Cyndi Lauper Cover)

By far one of the best cover songs I have ever heard!

Jesse’s Girl by Rick Springfield

Nothing makes me think of 13 Going On 30 like this song <3

Push It by Salt-N-Pepa

While at the RT Convention, Jasmine had this song stuck in her head so when they played it at 80′s Fest I FREAKED out (in a good way!)

Your Love by The Outfield

This is and always will be one of my favorite 80′s song. For those on the braver side, I suggest listening to I See Stars cover of the song. There’s a bit of screamo involved but I still love it!

  1. I AM an 80s child & I’ll have to say.. the clothing needs to stay in the 80s, haha. It is no where near what they’re trying to bring back now. It was awful. SERIOUSLY AWFUL lol. The music and the movies, however – AMAZING. They don’t make it ‘em like that anymore. Cute pics!

  2. I love Jessie’s Girl, it doesnt remind me of the movie, just life in General at that age. I have a friend that loves Rick Springfield and still goes to see him in concert….!

  4. I love everything about this post. I am a little older than you, so when these songs were popular I was a very very young little girl but I can remember listening to them and singing them into a hairbrush like I knew what I was singing about. AND I used to put on my white roller skates with hot pink wheels and skate under my carport with my cassette player to my old cassette of Def Leppard’s Hysteria. Pour Some Sugar On Me was my favorite. Bahahaha!
