Music from the Decades

I am musically motivated. I love it when I am in cycle class and the music is loud, has a good beat, and I can just let go. Since I am a Gen Xer I am going to take a look back on my music past.

The 70’s: Give me a disco ball, a set of flashing lights, and it feels like a party to me. Here are a few that I played on my record player as a kid:

  • Got to be Real – Cheryl Lynn
  • Le Freak – Chic
  • You Make me Feel (Mighty Real) – Sylvester


The 80’s: I was more into pop than hard rock, but they both had a following. Punk and rap also began to surface. I would hit play on my tape player with these:

  • Girls Just Want to Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
  • Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go – Wham!
  • Man in the Mirror – Michael Jackson


The 90’s: This decade gave us grunge, but for me dance music ruled my Discman:

  • Good Vibrations – Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch
  • Vogue – Madonna
  • Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) – C&C Music Factory


Y2K: This new decade has brought us new artists thanks to reality tv, YouTube, and iTunes. Here are a few of my favorites on my iPhone:

  • Just Dance – Lady GaGa & Colby O’Donis
  • Happy – Pharrell Williams
  • Hold My Hand – Jess Glynne


Thanks for strolling down memory lane with me. Whatever your motivation is, I hope you have fun while you are moving.
