Why do the titles of song keep reminding me of other songs. I can just about remember the Cardigans‘ melodic tune #LoveFool, but confess I‘d rather blast out a bit of Whitesnake‘s Fool For Your Loving. Love a bit of 80s rock.

#WanderingJune Love this entire soundtrack ❤️🎵🤘🏼And I was lucky enough to see Madonna perform on Broadway #OnceAnEightiesGirlAlwaysAnEightiesGirl On a side note, I can‘t recall reading any fiction set in Argentina 🇦🇷 so I‘ll be curious to see today‘s posts. (Like my #TBR is lacking books 😜)

TrishB Good pick 👍🏻 3mo
Freespirit Oh I loved seeing this on the big stage. Early this year I saw it at the Sydney Opera House, with Tina Arena. Amazing❤️ 3mo

#AnglophileApril I‘m about to share a true but embarrassing story...I had been nursing a crush on a guy for months. One weekend a group of us went away skiing and I had wayyyyy too much to drink. In my drunken stupor I let slip some #carelesswhispers basically letting my crush and EVERY person in the lodge know how I felt about this guy. My crush let me know that the feelings were mutual and then in my moment of joy I barfed all over him🤮🥴😜👇🏼

Cinfhen 35 years later, we‘re still together ❤️ And we totally made out to this song #CarelessWhisper over that weekend 😉 (edited) 5mo
CarolynM Ok, I saw this after my reply to your comment😂 Of course there are some good things you can never have enough of😉 5mo
Reggie Lolololol when they can handle you with vomit or diarrhea or God forbid both, lol, they‘re keepers. Thanks for the story. 5mo

I‘m loving this! I decided to try something funny I had not read. This is been on my TBR for at least two years! She has a really great voice and fantastic comedic timing!

🤞🏻🤞🏻 for good mri news tomorrow!

Cinfhen I‘ve been meaning to read this....good luck 💚💚💚 5mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen It‘s very funny! Thanks, friend!! 💙😘 I‘ll post a picture of my next paint by sticker. I‘m doing music icons, and this one makes me think of you! 5mo

#AnglophileApril Madonna symbolizes #MyGeneration of 80‘s girls who wore stockings in their hair, fishnets on their legs, black rubber bands up their arms and midriff shirts with slouchy jeans 💄💋#OnceAnEightiesGirlAlwaysAnEightiesGirl

erzascarletbookgasm Definitely an unforgettable icon of the 80s 💜 5mo
TrishB ❤️ read my mind! 5mo
Cinfhen It‘s always about Madonna for me @erzascarletbookgasm @TrishB although I have a feeling I wouldn‘t “like” her IRL 🙄😬 5mo

Mdargusch Memories! I made a vcr tape of Madonna videos from mtv for @Reviewsbylola and @emilyhaldi because they loved to dance to it. Then I actually watched it and was horrified! I had to ban it after that. They were maybe 5 & 4. Wonder if I scarred them? 5mo
GripLitGrl ❤🎶❤ 5mo
Cinfhen Some of her earlier videos were rather risqué @Mdargusch ? 5mo
Reviewsbylola That started my desire to always have things that were banned by mom. 😆😆 @mdargusch 5mo
Reviewsbylola Btw, I loved that video cassette so much that I begged to have it back for my birthday. 😂 5mo
emilyhaldi Love your hashtag 🤣 5mo
emilyhaldi You definitely messed me up for life @Mdargusch 🤪 5mo
Cinfhen Ha!!!! @Reviewsbylola I can‘t believe @Mdargusch actually had rules!!! And banned Madonna 😲 5mo
Mdargusch 🤨 I have been told that there were many people that were afraid of me. 5mo
Reviewsbylola Yeah she had a lot of rules. 😂 5mo

#WinterWonderland I love EVERYTHING 80‘s❣️❣️❣️❣️ So #HazyShadeOfWinter was a no brainer🎶🖤🎟In 1984, a College student named Bret Easton Ellis sold his first novel for $5000; it was called Less Than Zero, named after an Elvis Costello song. The story follows the exploits of Clay, an East Coast college student home in L.A. for Christmas break. He‘s looking for his drug-addled childhood pal who has fallen into a bad way.
🎥 = Fabulous soundtrack

Ruthiella Great picture collage! 😍😍😍 9mo
Lola I read Less Than Zero when it came out and then re-read it recently. Total 80s girl here :) Hated the sequel. Maybe because it wasn‘t set in the 80s ;) (edited) 9mo

LeahBergen The Bangles! 😍😍 9mo
Cinfhen I don‘t think I read Less Than Zero @Lola but I know the Elvis Costello song 🎵❣️I don‘t remember what I read in the 80‘s 🙈 9mo
TrishB Fellow 80s girl 😘 9mo
Cinfhen There‘s quite a few of us @TrishB 🙌🏻🎉💕🎶 9mo
TrishB Sometimes forget I‘m not 15 anymore! 9mo
Cathythoughts 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻💕 9mo
Centique @Cinfhen I remember loving the movie. Look at that young Robert Downey Jr 😍 9mo
Cinfhen Isn‘t that nuts @Centique he looks sooooooo young!!!!! 9mo
Purrfectpages From one 80s lover to another... 👍 👏 9mo
BookishTrish I loved this book and movie. My fav Ellis movie is still 9mo
Cinfhen Haven‘t read the book @BookishTrish but it seems so familiar 🧐 9mo
Leftcoastzen Very 80s! I like this one more 9mo
Cinfhen That one I do remember @Leftcoastzen similar vibe 9mo
Leftcoastzen I‘m bad though, I like the Simon and Garfunkel recording so much better. 9mo
Cinfhen No......#TeamBangles all the way @Leftcoastzen 9mo
Lola @Leftcoastzen Yes to Bright Lights! I think I‘ll do a re-read of this one in 2019. I checked my GR and Zero got only 3 stars (ie liked, didn‘t love) from me in 2015. I think I liked Lights more, too on my original read. 9mo
JaclynW I loved this movie! I ❤ the 80's too! 😍 9mo

I had no idea #50wordsforsnow was a Kate Bush song! I lost track of her in the late 90s but as one can tell from my pictured record collection (vinyl-I‘m old) I used to listen to her ALOT. What does this have to do with books? She wrote a song about Wuthering Heights, Peter Pan and The last chapter of Ulysses...she‘s a reading person‘s recording artist!


Cinfhen Nice!!!!! @TrishB is Gonna love this 🥰 9mo
HardcoverHearts I literally just bought her box set LPs that was just released. She is an amazing literate lyricist! ❤️❤️❤️ 9mo
Ruthiella @Cinfhen Yay 😀 I‘m glad to find another fan! I can tell by many of Trish‘s post that she‘s an 80s music aficionado. 9mo

Ruthiella @HardcoverHearts Yes! She‘s an amazing artist who gets inspiration from all over!🤩 9mo
TrishB Love Kate 💕 I‘m well stuck in the 80s...we‘ll all be playing her all day now....side 2 of Hounds of Love should be required listening in every house 😁 (edited) 9mo
TrishB @HardcoverHearts I brought these for hubby for Christmas, despite the fact he already has the originals. This new book comes out today too 9mo
Ruthiella @TrishB I listened to The Jig of Life so often my roommate at the time made me stop. 😁 9mo
Ruthiella @TrishB I think I need that book! 😍 9mo
TrishB I‘m singing it now!! I tend to get stuck on songs and drive people mad too. But what a song that is. I think Hounds of Love will be today‘s listening. One of the best albums ever (did I say that already 😁) 9mo

Since #StepfordSummerParty was a total blast I‘m throwing another party and you‘re ALL INVITED 🎈🎈🎈#HELLoWeen October 25 - 28, 2018❣️I‘m asking you to suggest some classic 80s horror reads ( preferably under 350 pages) and we can chose our next group read👻🤡☠️ If you thought the 70s were fun, welcome to the 80s 🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️

Cinfhen I‘m thinking you might be interested @Lizpixie 1y
MinDea Me me me! I want to join! This sounds awesome! 1y
TrishB I was about to start typing and then saw 350 pages .....will go away and check 😁 sounds like great fun. 1y

CarolynM I'm in! 1y
batsy Fun!! I'm so in! Off to do some research 🤓 1y
Cinfhen Excellent, I‘m putting together the guest list @MinDea @TrishB @CarolynM @batsy ❤️ 1y
Cathythoughts I‘m in 👍🏻❤️ 1y
BookwormAHN I'm in 🖤 1y
MrsV Can I join? 1y
Cinfhen Yay!!! Our first suggestion @BookwormAHN 💕and glad to have some new party guests @MrsV and my old time friend @Cathythoughts 1y
mabell I'm a total weenie, so I may have to just spectate this one! (While peeking through my fingers) 😳 1y
CoffeeAndABook Count me in!!! I‘m such a scaredy-cat, I‘m not sure I can contribute book suggestions but I promise I‘ll read along with you guys by my side 😬😬😬 👻👻👻 And the 80s!!! I was there full on!! While the 70s were childishly cute for me, the 80s were in my bones, as painful as it gets music-, fashion- & especially hair-wise!!! This is going to be so much fun 🎀 1y
Cinfhen Hahahahaha, me too @mabell so I‘m hoping we can agree on something scary BUT not blood curling! I think @erzascarletbookgasm book choice is meant to be horror-lite😗so that might be a good option for us weenies 😜 1y
erzascarletbookgasm @mabell @CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen I‘m a scaredy-cat too, that‘s why I suggested a ‘mild‘ one! 😄 Depending on the choice of book, I may have to sit this out till the next party. 1y
Cathythoughts Is Frankenstein long ? Would that be an option. ? Maybe @TrishB a short book ? ( novella) by SK ?? 1y
Lizpixie I got you @Cinfhen 1y
Cinfhen I knew I could count on my #greeneyedpixie @Lizpixie 💚 1y
batsy @mabell Me too! I'm hoping whatever we read is not too gory 😆 1y
batsy Love the idea of a good haunted house horror so I'm suggesting this one published in 1988 :) 1y
batsy Also tagging @Reggie and @rohit-sawant because I think #HELLoWEEN screams their name 😁 1y
Reggie @TrishB did they make good horror back then that was anything less than 500 pgs.? Lol I wanted to suggest Stinger by Robert McCammon but it sits at 542 pgs. I‘m totally up for this though, @batsy. 1y
Librarybelle @erzascarletbookgasm @mabell @CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen @batsy Consider me a squeamish one as well! I stay away from a lot of horror, so depending upon the book choice, I may have to bow out of this one. 👻 Sorry - can‘t offer any suggestions - I‘m a tad more in tune with gothic horror (Poe)! 1y
thereadingowlvina Oh count me in please! 😁 1y
Pamwurtzler Count me in!! 1y
SledgeReader I‘m with the squeamish team. But don‘t let me hold the group back! 👻 1y
Velvetsun Ooh I want to be included. 1y
Reviewsbylola Fun!! I don‘t have any suggestions so I‘m excited to see what gets chosen! 1y
Mdargusch I have to join in for the 80‘s theme but I‘m not a big horror fan. This will be a fun way to get into a new genre 1y
Bookzombie Count me in! I will have to look for some suggestions. 👻🎃💀 1y
GripLitGrl 🙌🙌count me in such fun! The only one I can think of that's not too long 1y
RealLifeReading I don‘t read much horror but I do make an exception for Halloween 🎃 1y
RealLifeReading I just found this Japanese horror novel - written in the 80s but only translated into English in 2017. Nothing scares me more than Japanese horror! 1y
RealLifeReading Night Things sounds good @batsy 1y
batsy @RealLifeReading I have that on my TBR and didn't realise it was written in the 80s! Nice. True, I expect Japanese horror to be terrifying (which is why I've been putting it off 😅) 1y
peaknit I was looking around and remember Different Seasons by Stephen King, my own 80‘s obsession😂 it has four novellas, 3 whichbecame movies, we all know Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, then Apt Pupil was also a movie. Leaving Breathing Method, but it‘s only 60+ pages, maybe The Body (Stand by Me) and Breathing Method? I loved that whole book, wore the pages out in 7th grade! That said, Night Things also sounds interesting. Excited! (edited) 1y
Cinfhen Thanks for the suggestions @RealLifeReading @peaknit @GripLitGrl @batsy I‘ll compile a list and then put it to vote! So glad you‘re all back in @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @Pamwurtzler @Librarybelle @SledgeReader @Bookzombie It looks like most of us prefer horror-lite 😜 1y
Reviewsbylola I actually prefer as gory as possible but I see that I‘m in the minority. 🤣🤣 1y
bookandbedandtea I'm team squeamish but when you guys finalize your choice I'll see if I think I can handle it. 👾 1y
DebinHawaii Late to the party as usual. I saw this last night but sleep beckoned harder. 😉I'm in, but struggling with a book recommendation that's under 350 pages & from the 80s, readily available now, that isn't a total gore-fest. There's this one which is first in a series and I haven't read although it gets good reviews on Amazon. And it put I Wear My Sunglasses at Night in my head. 😎👂🏻🐛 Oh-it was first published in 1989 too so right on the cusp. (edited) 1y
TrishB @Reggie I haven‘t found any yet! 1y
TrishB I‘m not squeamish !! Will give most things a go! 1y
Cinfhen Love you @DebinHawaii and love that song by Corey Hart but I don‘t think I can handle a vampire book 🤪 1y
mabell I agree with @Librarybelle - gothic horror may be more my speed! I'm looking forward to seeing what is chosen and whether I think I can handle it 😬 I can't wait for the 80s posts! 😎 1y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen It's OK. I love you too. 😍😆That's all I got at the moment that hasn't been mentioned. 80s horror was a lot about the page count. I'll try to look for something else later if I get a minute. 1y
DebinHawaii I probably lean to #TeamGore with @Reviewsbylola and @TrishB 😱😆 1y
TrishB Not read that one! Looks good 👍🏻 1y
DebinHawaii Works for me! 👍 1y
LeahBergen Count me in! 1y
LeahBergen The Elementals sounds great (I may have read it back in the day 🤔). I love a good haunted house story. 👻 1y
Bookzombie I second @RealLifeReading on Graveyard Apartment! Also, Night Things @batsy posted. 1y
Bookzombie I lean toward #teamgore. 😁 1y
Cinfhen Woohoo 🎉🙌🏻💜 @LeahBergen NOW the party‘s getting started !!!!!! 1y
Cinfhen I‘m gonna whittle down the list a bit and put it up for vote tomorrow @Bookzombie 👻 1y
GripLitGrl Nice suggestions so far looking forward to seeing what we end up with👻🎑🙌 1y
Bookzombie @Cinfhen That‘s great! Thank you for putting this together again! 1y
BluestockingDuchess This will be fun! 1y
peaknit #nerdalert I just entered this buddy read into my calendar! 1y
Bklover Oh this sounds like fun! I missed the discussion but read all about it (I‘m vacationing with my oldest daughter). This next one should be great! Can‘t wait! 1y
bookandbedandtea @Cinfhen @DebinHawaii @TrishB @Reggie @Reviewsbylola @mabell I went to look up The Elementals and I accidentally one-clicked it! 😯 So if that's the one that gets picked I'll try to participate despite being #TeamSqueamish ! 1y
TrishB @bookandbedandtea accidentally one-clicked - love it 💕😁 1y
Cinfhen Oh Man @bookandbedandtea I‘ve done that before🤪it‘s gonna get my vote so 🤞🏼🤞🏼that the others vote for it too!!! I bet if you contact Amazon, they will credit you. 1y
vivastory I'm definitely down for a horror read! I see The Elementals has gotten a lot of mentions. That's been on my TBR for awhile now! 1y
Reggie I kinda wanna 3rd @RealLifeReading. When I looked up best 80‘s horror fiction that book was in the top ten. 1y
ElishaLovesBooks Oh boy! I‘m the biggest scaredy-cat. I once started reading a Dean Koontz while I was babysitting in the 90‘s and have been traumatized ever since! 😱😳 I may be open to it if it‘s not too scary! #imabigbaby 1y
bookandbedandtea @TrishB @Cinfhen I was on a business call and didn't realize it at first, then was pretty annoyed at myself! But I decided to keep it. Maybe, if it's the one, reading it with a group will make it easier. 1y
bookandbedandtea @ElishaLovesBooks Same! I read something when I was a teen (blocked the name due to trauma I guess! Or maybe because it was so long ago! 🤔) then couldn't sleep for days. #scaredycatsunite 1y
asiriusreader Awesome, I‘m in!! 1y
ValerieAndBooks Maybe something by V.C. Andrews? I remember her being popular during the 1980s! 1y

#HeyJune in my world there is only one #LadyMadonna #onceAnEightiesGirlAlwaysAnEightiesGirl #spandexandneonforever 🤘🏼💕😄🎧

LibrarianRyan The original material girl!! Always makes me think muddin' trucks, sandy beaches, and hot military guys in short shorts (ala Top Gun). 1y
Cinfhen We were just saying TopGun would be an awesome BDWY musical @LibrarianRyan (edited) 1y
LibrarianRyan @Cinfhen your right that could be amazing. But first we shall see the sequel. Too bad 1. Val Kilmer can no longer fill out those short shorts, 2. Military went to sport shorts. I think we still have an old pair of dads somewhere. 1y
