What does your favorite ’80s song says about you?

“Africa” by Toto – Not only do you have quality taste in music, but you have a definitively global perspective.  While having an ear tuned to events around the world, you also know how to break it down at a dance party with some pretty raw and funky moves.

“You’re the Inspiration” by Chicago – A romantic, you often can be seen staring at Orion’s Belt or honing your mad poetry skills.  The fact that you really like Chicago makes you pretty cool, but at the same time the fact that you really like Chicago makes you pretty weird.

“Physical” by Olivia Newton-John – Clearly progressive with your hyphenated last name, you also enjoy getting physical, as the song implies. Yoga, biking, jogging and promoting orange juice are just a few of your hobbies. Maybe knitting, too.

“Beat It” by Michael Jackson – Often people question what you do in your spare time, and try to kick you around.  But you have the strength of a caged raccoon, the courage of Littlefoot and the dance moves of Usher.  You, my friend, are a force to be reckoned with.

“Fire Lake” by Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band – “What is this song,” you ask? Three minutes and 35 seconds of awesome, that’s what.  People aren’t sure just quite what to make of you – mostly because you sound and look like a cross between Smokey the Bear and Bob Dylan.  Down home and just a little country, you enjoy the outdoors, a friendly campfire and a good road trip.

The ’80s was an interesting decade… we hear a lot about it, but we don’t know much.  I was only around for about 8 months of it out of the ten years. All I remember are some tears, a stroller and a few dirty diapers.  But we have some of the culture. We have some of the music. And that is a gift.
