Steph’s Top 40 Tunes from the 80s

I put this playlist together several years back when I had a big 80s party, but after that I managed to lose it, except that I had a copy on CD, thankfully. So here are my favorite 80s tunes, mostly in order from “pretty cheesy” to “really good.” Love’s Been A Little Bit Hard On

Route 66 Space Mix

I think I have something close to a final version of my music mix for the CD swap we’re doing for our Route 66 trip. I want to listen to it through a couple of times. It’s a bit on the cheesy and obvious side, but that’s okay. I’d do better if I had all

80’s Party Playlist

Songs from an epic 80’s party I threw. (See the pictures from my party here) The original playlist has 1457 songs in it, and was 4.1 days long. I edited that list down to what you see below. I tried to pick a broad cross-section of music genres and I tried to cover as many

Good Morning! Song to sing early in the morning

I made a couple different versions of this CD, and added some songs to it later. Originally I made this for my friends Mia and Ria, because they were talking about how Mia is a morning person and Ria isn’t. Mia likes to get up and putter around the house singing in the morning. So

98 compilation CDs. 662 Artists. 1352 Songs, 3.7 Days worth of music. 7.28 GB of disk space. Of course, there are duplicate songs, so the numbers on the final count will change, and I have quite a few 80’s CDs in my own collection. I still have to add the collections together and eliminate duplicates.

Teen Death Songs

In the fifties, there was a whole trend of sappy songs about young love misunderstood and cut short by the tragedy of death. I tried to track down many of the titles, but they were pretty hard to come by. This is the CD of sorrowful tunes I was able to put together. If you

paper moon

I saw the 1973 movie “Paper Moon” on TCM on Monday. I’d never seen it before; it was a great movie. Tatum O’Neal was a terrific kid actor. The soundtrack was great, too — Depression era jazz. I searched around but found there was never officially a soundtrack released for it, although someone put together

This is a creation of my friend Doug, who has thrown a 70s party every year for eleven years that is always a huge hit. Doug put this 9 disc set together several years ago, and it’s a staple of my music library. (Note: not all of these are cheesy songs; we put many iconic

Songs That Turn Me On

This started out to be a CD of songs about sex, but I realized some of the songs that I find arousing aren’t necessarily about sex at all… Like number 7 through 11, which are all songs that have a sort of hypnotic gypsy sound that I find erotic. 01 – I’m On Fire –

Songs To Stalk Someone By (love series vol. 3)

This CD wasn’t originally part of the “Love” series; originally it was supposed to be “kissing”, “love”, and “sex”. But somehow the kissing CD never got off the ground. This CD came about after a dinner-time discussion of Sting’s “Behind the Music” episode on VH-1. He mentioned that couples came up to him and told
