I have a riddle for you. What’s more fun than 80’s music?
Give up? Okay I’ll tell you. Nothing. So grab your significant other and get ready for a good time!
While you’re at it, make it a costume date night and dress up in the most “awesome” 80’s clothes and hairstyles you can think of. Then rate each other and see who has the best 80’s look.
This list of 5 songs is a great way to bond in an LDR, so let’s get started!
This is my all time favorite 80’s song. First of all, Eddie Murphy + Singing = WTH?!?!
Just that fact alone was enough to arouse my curiosity. I’m not going to tell you anything about the song, you’ll have to go check it out together on date night. I’ll give you a hint of what my favorite thing about the music video was though…It involves hair. (I’ve said too much already.)
Now, you can’t fully enjoy this “party” without watching the MadTV Parody video after.
So, because I’m awesome, here are the links to both videos:
Okay guys, I have a confession to make. I’m a bit of a rebel. So if you tell me not to do something it will take an army of ninjas to stop me from doing it because you said not to. Especially when you can’t give me a good reason why I shouldn’t do it.
The first time I heard this song was on Jimmy Fallon’s “Do Not Play List” … Can you see where I’m going with this?
This song is hilarious! It’s pretty catchy and became an inside joke at LDRmagazine. Now when we want to motivate each other we sing “Do it Roger do it….” Don’t get the reference? Go listen to it:
I’m just gonna be honest here. I’m obsessed with this song. Seriously. If this song ever comes on in the grocery store, you know I’ll be busting a move in the middle of the aisle. #ShamelessAisler
So of course I had strong opinions on the X-Factor cover that Nicola Marie did.
After you check out the original song, listen to the Nicola Marie version and compare the two. Is Nicola’s better or worse? And do you agree with the judges? Go decide for yourselves:
You know this song. What? You don’t? Tell me you’re kidding. You were? Oh okay good.
This song is a classic! And of course we loved hearing it in 13 going on 30.
Revisit this rock queen together and see if you can still do the dance moves. Go rock out:
As a child, I took everything literally. So when I heard “Our house, in the middle of the street.” I was like “Whaaat? They’re going to get hit by a car!” As an adult, I get that it’s not literally in the middle of the street, more like the middle of that side of the block. Do I know what it represents or understand the deeper song meaning? Nope. I still have no clue. If you figure out it out let me know. (Seriously.) Here’s the video:
