Friday 80s Flashback for October 17, 2014

[Walk it Off] -- My mother likes nothing more than burning off some excess energy, stress, and calories by taking a brisk walk. This has been the case for as long as I can remember. I once made her a mix tape so she could have some upbeat tunes to accompany her. She liked it so much she uses it to this day (albeit the cassette has been replaced with an iPod Shuffle). Well, she fell and broke her leg two weeks ago. Earlier this week, she had surgery to set it properly (apparently, the fracture wasn't where the doc wanted it to be after a week in a full-leg cast). She comes home on Saturday, and she'll be alternating between a wheelchair and a walker for the next two or three months. So, in honor of her recuperation, I have posted a workout music 80s playlist I found on YouTube. You can check out the songs in this playlist after the break.

Flashback Playlist: This playlist has ten songs (originally had 11, but one was deleted). The songs are as follows:

Pat Benatar  - Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger
The B52's - Love Shack
Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer
Michael Jackson - Beat It 
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts - I Love Rock N Roll
Katrina & The Waves - Walking On Sunshine
Kool & the Gang - Celebration
Michael Jackson - Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Official Video)

That's all till next week. And I hope you'll join me in wishing my mother a speedy recovery.
