    lol love the “I was so cool” pic. I may need to toss some of the oldies into my upcoming August run mix.

  2. I was born in September 1989 so technically I was alive for about 3 months of the 80s 🙂

  3. Love this! I was born in 83 and my parents are really into music so I’m proud to say that I know all of these and already have a good chunk of them on my iPod! Need to update and add the rest into my rotation – such good ones!! Thanks for this list!

  6. 80’s music is the best! Still some of the best music to run to.

  7. I was born in 1987, but I listen to music of almost any decade. I do have a special place in my heart for 80s music though. How could you not?

  8. Awesome playlist! I was born in 1990 so missed a few of these but I love me some Whitney Houston, ooooh I wanna dance with somebody! Good times 🙂
