Ten Songs We're Gonna Ask the DJ to Play at '80s Prom
We kind of wish we weren't so young in the '80s. Sure, we got to watch the amazing cartoons and play with those kick-ass toys (Teddy Ruxpin and Kid Sister), but that's all we actually remember. We missed the fashion. We weren't old enough to really enjoy the music. And we obviously didn't go to prom.
Until now ... A few of our favorite folks have teamed up for the eighth annual '80s Prom. Expect neon, heavily crimped hair, and tons of tulle. But what about the music?
Anyone can namedrop Madonna, The Cure and The Smiths. But we're thinking of music you'd actually be excited to hear, and not think, "Ohhh ... That again." So here are the top 10 songs we can't wait to hear at '80s prom!
