Madonna and 80s Music – my Music A to Z


I am a child of the 1980s. I was 8 in 1980 and 17 in 1989. I love the 80s! I love 80s movies and tv shows, and still watch them on a regular basis. And when I’m not listening to Elvis, U2 or NKOTB, I’m listening to the 80s or New Wave channel on XM radio. Some of my favorites from the 1980s are Wham, Bryan Adams, Duran Duran, Howard Jones, Tears for Fears, Huey Lewis, A-Ha, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, Phil Collins, Violent Femmes, Tracy Chapman, Whitney Housont, Michael Jackson, REM, New Kids on the Block, U2 and of course Madonna. In middle school, I loved Madonna. Who didn’t, right?  I wanted to be like her, but the only thing I was allowed to wear that was Madonna-esque were her jelly bracelets. (that is probably a good thing now that I look back.) My favorite Madonna song back then was Burning Up. Other favorites were Dress You Up, Lucky Star, Papa Don’t Preach, and Into the Groove. Ironically, I remember watching Live Aid for Madonna – I don’t even remember U2 performing because I didn’t know who they were at the time. Love live the 80s!

This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2 about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z.

  1. Yay! So happy you did Madonna.


  2. There is no music quite like that from the 1980s. I love virtually every song I hear from that decade and rarely is there one played I have not heard at least once. Madonna was such an icon of that time period.
