I love 80's music, too. #s 1, 2, 4, 9 & 12 bring back lots of good memories! :o)

Sarah said...

It's funny... I was just thinking about "Don't Let It End" the other day and how I haven't heard it in such a long time. When I hear "Take My Breath Away", it's hard to believe that it's the same band that did such new wave classics as "The Metro" and "Sex (I'm A...)".

Angelika said...

I don't remember "Patience" at all. That's kind of ironic, LOL.

My Thursday 13 is up!

Can you take me hiiiiiiiiiggggggggghhhhhhhhh enough??

That will be in my head all day. Along with the visual of the blond hair swinging around the microphone... I love 80s music. Power ballads rock!
Happy Thursday.

Kat said...
