There's Eighties Music and There is Music Made in the Eighties

A certain most beloved Honorary Aunt to my children, because she thinks torturing me is a good idea, sent The Boy a CD of The Bangles Greatest Hits. Which we are now called upon to listen to every single time we are in the car and most of the time when we are at home.

Finally, I cracked. I told the children I couldn't take any more 80's music. Oddly enough the next song that came on the iPod was from Joshua Tree. But U2 doesn't count, in my mind, as 80's music. It certainly doesn't have the boppy sound of The Bangles. And besides, the children have no idea that Joshua Tree came out in the 80's and I wasn't in the mood to enlighten them.

As my punishment for that omission though, Walk Like an Egyptian was playing as we were checking out at the grocery store.


Ahhh, Joshua Tree. GREAT album. And definitely should NOT be classified as "80s Music" even though it was written and sung in the 80s.
