All These Songs Are As Old As Me
It's Friday and every once in a while I like to do a little nod to #FlashbackFriday
I somehow came across this video from The Hood Internet and it is a mash-up of 50 songs from 1986!
Guess who was born in 1986? ME!
Not only is 1986 awesome because I was born, but also because it was a great year in music. This video is evidence.
According to The Hood Internet's YouTube page, they have done these three-minute mashups for lots of other years. So, maybe there is one for your birth year as well.
Can you name all the songs in the video?
Well, let me help you. The video features songs from The Bangles, Beastie Boys, Berlin, Billy Bragg, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Boogie Down Productions, Book Of Love, Bruce Hornsby & The Range, Cutting Crew, Cyndi Lauper, Duran Duran, Eric B. & Rakim, Europe, Fingers Inc., Genesis, Gwen Guthrie, Howard Jones, Human League, Janet Jackson, Lionel Richie, Loose Ends, Madonna, Metallica, Midnight Star, New Order, Nu Shooz, Oran Juice Jones, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Robbie Nevil, Run-D.M.C., Run-D.M.C. with Aerosmith, Samantha Fox, Slayer, Smithereens, Stan Bush, Steve Winwood, and Whistle.
What a great year to be born.
However, I know that the #1 song the week I was born in February of 1986 was "That's What Friends Are For" by Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight, and Stevie Wonder, but it's not in the mash-up. So I included it down below. You're welcome.
