One of my favorite things to do when I have spare time is play retro rock VJ on my Facebook page (the personal one, not FSB – I’d be afraid you guys would kill me.) I do this because I a) miss when MTV was really “Music Television,” and b) I love awesome music from the 80’s and 90’s. I do listen to current tunes, but my sweet spot is music that came out when I was younger, so I tend to gravitate toward the things that make me happy and I make playlists.
Which, let’s all just be honest here, People of a Certain Age – this is a MIXED TAPE, okay? It’s just prettier and isn’t prone to ripping, breaking and jamming your car stereo.
This week, through the magical discovery of the Spotify Play widget , I am sharing this week’s playlist with you! Just click and get your swerve on: get fired up before a meeting with your boss, or hit your runway stride before work or a date. It’s a bunch of dance hits from the late 80’s, featuring tunes from Morris Day and The Time, Madonna, New Edition, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson – you name it.
Enjoy the new tunes, y’all! Stay motivated out there! Also, do you have requests for the next playlist? I take requests and dedications!
