A few weeks back a couple of us drove up to Daylesford for Chill Out's carnival day. One of the passengers kindly made a mix tape (ok, a mix on the i-pod) and accommodated another passengers specific request of some 80's music.. Well, I have to say that when the 80's tunes came on, there was lots of singing and toe tapping. This Easter weekend a mate and I are driving up through Western Victoria to take some landscape photos and she may do some sketches. In aid of this trip and in remembrance of the fun we had a few weeks back, an 80's mix was made up for the journey and as I am in an 80's kind of mood, I thought I'd share some of the tunes that will be playing loudly as we relive our childhoods and drive down country back roads tapping out toes and singing loudly (off-key of course)!. Yes, there could be a billion or more great tunes added to what is here (ok, slight exaggeration), but I have only posted a couple... Let me know your own 80's favourites and why!
