Mike Quinn has offered to sing a stirring rendition of "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" at the reunion. Forget the DJ/Band, let's do KARAOKE!!!

I want to hear Mike Konrad sing "If you want my body..." by Rod Stewart!

Don't forget "Your Love" by the Outfield. Better recognized as "Josie's on a vacation far away".

This song was HUGE in the month of May our Senior year.

AMY JACKSON said...

Amy O'Brien Jackson wants to hear "COOL IT NOW" by New Edition. I used to make Monica Kramer and Lori Early listen to that song over and over in my bright orange Pacer- they hated it!!!

Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince and LL Cool J

I think about all the concerts I attended, mainly with Amy Bates. How about Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, and the Van Halen 1984 tour? Included in my memories are the Footloose soundtrack, the Violent Femmes, MTV hits like Duran Duran, and Michael Jackson. Speaking of Jacksons, I'd like to see Amy O'Brien dance to Thriller. I think we also loved oldies, like songs from the Animal House and Big Chill soundtracks.

Speaking of oldies...I heard the Doors at a party or two or three.

I was also at the 1984 VH concert to the side of the stage. David Lee was so wasted he could hardly do his sword trick he was so proud of.

More songs: Word Up by Cameo, Pretty in Pink by The Psychedelic Furs, Howard Jones (think big hair, pop singer), The entire Synchronicity album by The Police, the Purple Rain album by Prince, Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears, the soundtrack from Eddie and the Cruisers.
