Musical Youth

I’d been warned about the dangers of YouTube–how distracting, how addictive, how side-splitting it is–but did I listen? No. Today I’ve spent hours digging up “one more song” from my formative years. But I swear I’ll restrain myself…right after I compile a list of my top five songs featured in ’80s movies.

Melt With You – Modern English (Valley Girl, 1983):

Don’t You Forget About Me – Simple Minds (The Breakfast Club, 1985):

In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel (Say Anything, 1989):

The Time of My Life – Bill Medley, Jennifer Warnes (Dirty Dancing, 1987):

We Got the Beat – The Go-Go’s (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, 1982)

Okay, I’ve talked myself into adding one more…
Xanadu – Olivia Newton-John (Xanadu, 1980)
