"Shootin at the walls of heartache....

...Bang!  Bang!  I am the warrior."

In yet another spectacle for the ages, a group of us put together a smashing 80's party to celebrate B-Rad's birthday....AND as it turned out, me getting a job offer!!!!!  The main objective here was to not be your run of the mill haphazard party that completely misrepresents the 80's.  So, as a result, much time was spent on lasers, mirrors, a fog machine, a video playlist and an audio playlist.  The playlist included a who's who of 80's stars personally assembled by yours truly and B-Rad.  You won't hear these jams every weekend in your neighborhood bar, one of which was The Warrior by Scandal.  Other classic examples from the video playlist include:

Loverboy - Turn Me Loose.  This video was taken from American Bandstand with Dick Clark.  The best part is when Dick Clark says "There's a lot riding on this band" before they start the song.  I don't know about you, but when I think about a phrase that may be said about Tiger Woods and golf but references rock music, I think Loverboy.  

Cameo - Word Up
Murray Head - One Night In Bangkok
Dio - Holy Diver
Billy Ocean - Get Outta My Dreams (and into my car)
New Order - True Faith.  This video is so amazing it requires a link.  
Falco - Rock Me Amadeus
Glass Tiger - Don't Forget Me 
Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up.  He's not only a white guy, he's a ginger.  Who woulda thunk it?
