[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]As choir prepares for their “Decades” spring show, we thought it would be a good time to look back at one decade in particular – the ‘80s. So grab some fingerless gloves and acid washed jeans, and get ready to tell the next person who asks that yes, you do listen to the band on your T-shirt.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”8432″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]“No Sleep Till Brooklyn” – Beastie Boys (1986)

A hard-hitting mix between rap rock and hard rock, this song is certainly not for those looking to relax. The wild, ranting vocals and intense background music make this song a perfect accompaniment to your hotel room-trashing rockstar fantasies and impromptu air guitar sessions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”Small Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”8433″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]“Jessie’s Girl” – Rick Springfield (1981)

This song is simply a classic; Rick Springfield’s voice is smooth and the beat is one to dance to. “Jessie’s Girl” is catchy, and not in the “I can’t get that annoying new pop song out of my head” kind of way. This 1980s hit is great for sing-alongs and anyone who is coveting someone else’s girl.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”Small Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”8434″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]“Come On Eileen” – Dexys Midnight Runners (1982)

We couldn’t make an ‘80s playlist without including “Come On Eileen.” You may recognize this song from the 2012 movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” While the essence of this song is difficult to explain, it is fun enough to deserve a spot on nearly every party playlist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”Small Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”8439″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]“Every Breath You Take” – The Police (1983)

The ultimate stalker’s anthem, this song was the biggest hit of 1983. This new wave rock tune starts off hauntingly mellow and gradually takes on a more desperate tone. Despite its slightly sinister edge, this song happens to be ever so calming.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”Small Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”8440″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]“You Give Love a Bad Name” – Bon Jovi (1986)

Originally written under a different title for Bonnie Tyler (“Total Eclipse of the Heart”), the repetitiveness of this hard rock hit renders it unforgettable. This song pairs well with angst-ridden study sessions and weekend road trips.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”Small Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”8443″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]“Footloose” – Kenny Loggins (1984)

As featured in the movie with the same name, “Footloose” is arguably one of the greatest dance songs of its time. This track is the quintessential ‘80s party hit. If you’re in the mood to let your hair down and dance like a maniac, this song is an excellent choice.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
