Musical Mondays is about our favorite music. What’s your favorite song? If you’re a writer, does it inspire your creativity? Cure writer’s block? If you’re not a writer, what do your favorite songs do for you?


Ok, time to change things up a bit. And what’s more fun that talkin’ 80’s musics…so welcome to the 80’s week version of Musical Mondays.

Here’s a fun one.  You remember the 1984 movie Breakin‘? Oh my gosh. That movie cracked me up. I mean, the music was fun, for a 1980’s movie, but oh, the acting.

Remember this song? There’s No Stoppin’ Love, by Ollie and Jerry


Oh, and I found a clip from the movie on You  Tube.



So, the song doesn’t have any deeper meaning or anything to me. It’s just a good, crack-me-up, fun-lovin’ song.


You have any like those??

  1. I loved Breakin’ – wore fingerless gloves and parachute pants for a while after that! And Top Gun?! Yeah Danger Zone and-You take my Breath Away by Berlin.
    For me it was the “hair bands” Cinderella, Def Leppard, Quiet Riot, Motley Crue, Great White. . . okay, I’ll stop there 🙂 Love the 80’s!

  2. Yep, “Highway to the Danger Zone” is in Top Gun, which reminds me of another great tune: “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin.

    Great Movie. Great Soundtrack.

  3. Eighties girl here, too. Totally.

    Meaningless, fun song? “Word Up.” My best friend and I were such dorks that we had little choreographed moves we’d do when we heard it. …Now it’s stuck in my head. I have to go download it on Zune!

  4. OMGoodness! I’m an 80’s girl through and through! I could go on and on about 80’s music, but the first song that came to mind and one of my all-time favorites is Total Eclipse of the Heart. Love it! I’ll be coming up on my 200th post soon and plan to do a list of 100 of my favorite songs to celebrate. You’ll have to check it out!

  5. Call me crazy, but I love eighties music! I have a plethora of eighties tunes on my I-pod right now.

    My entry for meaningless fun song? How ’bout “Highway to the Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins? Come on, who doesn’t get the urge to hijack an F-14 Tomcat whenever they hear that song? I know I do.

  6. Oh, the 80s. Yikes. How I ended up writing an entire novel set in that decade is beyond me!

    My favorite fun-lovin’ song that has absolutely no meaning for me just missed the 1980s. It’s “Love Shack” by the B-52s. It drives my husband crazy!
