The official "New Wave Sissy Boy 80s Hits You Were Afraid To Admit You Liked In High School" playlist

I am sick today. I feel really crappy to be completely honest. I just want to go and lay down on my bed and take a nice snoozer. But, I know as soon as I do, the wee one will wake up from her nap and it will be over. So, I went to check my email instead of napping and came across this playlist and laughed. :0) So, I thought I'd share it.

"This is the ultimate 80's new wave guilty pleasures playlist. All the sissy boy hits we secretly loved in high school, but were never man enough to admit until grunge killed pop metal. "

That is this guy's description of the list. Now, I was not in high school during the 80s. But I love, love LOVE 80s music. Between the hair bands and techno pop stuff, it was just fun stuff. Here's his list:

Too Shy - Kajagoogoo
No One Is To Blame - Howard Jones
Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - Culture Club
Poison Arrow - ABC
Save A Prayer - Duran Duran
Careless Whisper - Wham!
Hold Me Now - The Thompson Twins
If You Leave - Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode
Tainted Love - Soft Cell
It's My Life - Talk Talk
More Than This - Roxy Music
I Ran (So Far Away) - A Flock Of Seagulls
Promises, Promises - Naked Eyes
Perfect Way - Scritti Politti
West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys
Only You - Yaz
Girls Just Want To Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper
Safety Dance - Men Without Hats
Love Plus One - Haircut 100
True - Spandau Ballet

Did you get some flashbacks? I know I did. :0) So, go get out your tape collection and your boombox and have a radical time!

I loved ONly You by Yaz. I would sing it dreaming of whatever boy I most recently had a crush on.

You just posted my entire mix tape collection from 9th grade. Ahh, the memories. I could not pick one favorite off that list. I literally LOVED them all. Loved. As in had A-ha and Duran Duran posters on my wall.

What was I thinking?

Wow. That's a lot of 80's music there. I'm not gonna lie, there's not much I like in that group. Tainted Love is fun though.
