Andrei in the office

Something less serious... The 80's were silly

In the 80's I paid my way thru college (or more properly earned a couple of bucks on the side) as a professional DJ playing "Top 40" music with an Urban emphasis.

What this means is that I know "Buffalo Dance" and "Cherry Pie" by heart whether I want to or not.

I found myself listening to one of my compilation discs last night on the 'drive home.'

I realized... You know this stuff was big and popular.. I really loved some of these songs... but in retrospect... They're really silly. The whole group was just, really... silly.

So, I'm curious... It's a top 5 list.

What are the 5 acts of the 80s that you liked, loved, knew were popular... but... 15-25 years later... Wow. What were they thinking. What were we thinking?!?!

Results.. next week :)
