  5. I went looking for the songs with Google and YouTube, and added links to several versions...

    After reading Kallekelly's comment, I had to go back and add the Shondell's earlier version of "I Think We're Alone Now."

    "The Boys of Summer" was a Don Henley song predating Ataris and others.

    I found three different songs with "It's Just Another Day in Paradise" and posted links to the two popular ones by the Eagles and by Phil Vassar. I think either could be Nikki B's reference.

    "Keepin' The Faith" almost certainly refers to the Billy Joel song and not De la Soul.

    "Pashendale" by Iron Maiden does not contain the line "I want to freefall into nothing" (there's a hit on Google, but it is in a comment under the lyric) ... the line is from "Free Falling."

  6. Thanks Q- that's why I only put it in the comments, I just wasn't sure about any of my research (I didn't know most of the songs... not really into eighties music). Thanks for fixing it!

  7. I love the 80s! Thanks for posting all those videos. I'm just sad that NikkiB didn't quote Duran Duran...

  8. After checking LGPedia's page, I added a 3rd song with "Just Another Day In Paradise" ... probably the correct reference ... Phil Collins "Another Day In Paradise"
