  1. 85 had a lot of great hits! it was a lot of party music going on! I was able to find more for 88 and 89 🙂 For 88: “Got My Mind Set on You” by George Harrison; “Angel” by Aerosmith; “Fast Car” by Tracy Chapman; “We’ll Be Together” by Sting; and “Kissing a Fool” by George Michael. For 89: “She Drives Me Crazy” by the Fine Young Cannibals; “Love Shack” by the B-52s; “Miss You Like Crazy” by Natalie Cole; and “Stand” by R.E.M. Rory, this has been fun, finding and remembering these songs from the 80s. Great idea!
