MusicBliss: 80's Chicks

Marcy and I are working on some YogaDance playlists and decided to do an homage (ha!) to 80's rocker chicks. Who was your favorite?



Oh, the makeup!

And we might have to stretch to the late '70's for this chick.

"Walk Like an Egyptian," The Bangles. "Head Over Heels," The Go-Gos. Anything by Sheila E., because anyone who can play the drums like that should be immortalized.

love them all, remember furhter back when Joan Jett was in an all girl band.. I think the Runaways with Lita Ford, another 80's hard rocker!

Love Joan Jett and Blondie. Blondie was 80s too, so there's not really a stretch for her. Also Pat Benatar, Heart, Kate Bush for the dramatic girl in you.

Off the top of my head and trying not to repeat what others have posted, Sinead O'Connor, Siouxsie Sue, Annie Lennox, Natalie Merchant, Exene Cervenka (of "X"), and Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth)!

"I Hate Myself for Loving You" ~ Joan Jett rocks.
"Vacation" ~ The Go-Gos.

There are more ... I just can't remember 'em all.

Anybody that doesn't say Cyndi Lauper is number one is simply lying! LOL And Madonna could rock out if you dangled a new boyfriend at the end of the fishing line for her for when she she was done!

I was a Talkin' Heads kind of girl in the 80's...seriously good dance music!

I echo what others have said....Cyndi Lauper ("I Drove All Night"), Madonna (I *so* went through THAT fashion stage!), Joan Jett, Blondie,...

For me, the one that sums it up, though, is:

Pat Benatar "Love is a Battlefield".
