10 Songs from 1989
Looking up 1989 in Wikipedia was fun. Listening to Taylor Swift 1989.. eh. Today I worked out to Top hits of 1989. YES!
1. We Didn't Start the Fire- Billy Joel
Great song. It has been on almost every playlist I have had since the 80s. I don't remember this song in 1989 but I think it's one of the most perfect songs to define a time period. I want to re write it.
2. Bat Dance by Prince
Michael Keaton will forever be my batman. Jack Nicholson will forever be my Joker. This song... eh.
3. Straight Up- Paula Abdul
This song makes me wish I could have gone clubbing in the 80s.
4. Higher Ground- Red Hot Chili Peppers
I remember hearing they were around since the 80s but I never heard it. It's a total 1980s Red Hot Chili Peppers song. Did they create 90s music? I feel like they were the bridge between 80s and 90s music.
5. You Got it- Roy Orbinson
This gives an older vibe to me. 1950s maybe with a twinge of 80s.
6. Hangin Tough- New Kids on the Block
I was IN LOVE with them. Joey if were being specific. I rationalized it at I guess 6 years old that he was the closest in age to me and therefore the most possible to be in a relationship with.
7. Rhythm Nation- Janet Jackson
I am pretty sure we did a cheerleading dance to this song in high school in the late 90s.
8. The Best- Tina Turner
I worked at Best Buy in the early 2000's. There was sing star. We would have Sing Star parties at the condo I rented. This was my jam. I want to be Tina Turner when I grow up.
9. The End of Innocence- Don Henley
My mom had a Don Henley Cd. I think.
10. Toy Soldiers- Martika
It's got a vibe.
