Weekend Event 09/11/2015 - Power Bands and Dance Parties ~ We love the 80s

kokokokonutkokokokonut Community ModeratorModerators 26,886 Posts
It was a time of Disco Dying, making way for New Wave and Post Punk Progressive Pop Music. MTV burst onto the scene, and sponsored by the Hairspray Council of America, Bands with Big Sounds and Bigger Hair were fast emerging as the ones to blow out the speakers.

Venues were larger and larger stadiums, and the Birth of the Power Band....heavy metal with a wounded heart.....took over the airwaves. Arguably, wikipedia says Power Balads go back to Stairway to Heaven, but if you ask me, Poison is more of the Poster Child for these Titans of the 80s.

By special request of our lovely Hostess, this weekend's party thread is all about Power Bands, and Dance Parties. Here Goes. Let's throw open the windows and Party..............it's

(and if you weren't around then, no worries, you're not alone. But who hasn't flipped on MTV or VH1 and watched "We Love the 80s"? So let's travel back and Par---T.



And Dance Party

So let's not disappoint.

It's not official till Alex throws the Confetti.

Ok, now let's blow this thread up, so when Holy shows up, she'll see it's underway.

Here's Kelly Ripa and Bobby Brown from Dance Party USA

Hey, didn't we just win that hair?

    You never heard anything eighties that you liked? Nothing from your parents, etc...? Well, if not, then you'll get an education this weekend!

    Well my mother listened to Michael Jackson growing up when she was younger back in the days. She also listened to Madonna and Lionel Richie back home from her country. And she always mentioned more 80 songs to me but I can't seem to remember them right now.

    Since Carol is new to 80s music but does know who Madonna is, let's start her indoctrination.

    Maybe it will be a dating weekend event. I hope that it is because my doll is ready to have her first child with her hubby.

    I'm so very excited to be hosting this weekend! I'm hoping it's a dating weekend since all my school dances were filled with 80s music. In fact, one year the theme was Stairway to Heaven!

    Yes, that's me. It's May 1989 and I was ready to leave for Junior prom. I was living in West Germany but attending an American school. This bow & lace extravaganza is the same dress I wore to my 8th grade formal dance in 1986.

    I was so annoyed that my date bought me a yellow corsage. You can see that I got him a pink boutonnière.

    I did my hair myself. I did an upside down French braid up to a high side ponytail. Then I did spiral curls in the ponytail and curled & teased my bangs. I loved 80s hair.

    Aww Holly, that's a beautiful pic, despite the lack of colour co-ordination from your date! I'm an 80s baby, so I've got heaps of songs I could put up, but this one seemed most appropriate for us in my book ;p

    My bet is on a dating weekend. Really wish it wasn't though as I'm going on vacation. VIP would be perfect!

    If it's a dating event, I wonder where should I take my hubby to go out on dates at? I don't think that I have enough cash to take my hubby to Oak Club. I think that I got broke too fast on my game.

    Congrats holly! You looked so pretty on your prom night. And thank you for the 80s theme! My school is currently organising a 'back to the 80s' week theme and we have to suggest the 80s music and the outfits. It's like a mini play, not the musical though sadly. Everyone in our school has to wear an 80s based outfit, so to all the people who lived in that era, any suggestions?

    Holly you were so pretty and radiant!

    I thought I would feel out of touch with 80s music, but I have heard 2-3 of the ones posted. The first one Koko posted I couldn't listen though, not available in my country.

    Anyway, this one maybe?

  • NaimonsterNaimonster Expert Member Registered Users 5,127 Posts
    My android clicked the options as you did! Then just for fun, my iPad game clicked the other options.

    She's also sitting at the table and will ask you to choose between constructed or loose.. Then you complete the task.

    Is Misty storyline part of the weekend event? I'm not sure since there's a deadline attached...

    Either way... Charli, it not very polite to sit on Misty's lap 😂😂😂😂

    The Miraggio Grande isn't as expensive as the Oak but you can use less energy by combining it with Kash there too.

    I just met with Misty at La Rue and she wanted to know if I prefer "colorful" or "black & white." Ummm... Considering Dixie is dressed for our 80s Dance Party.... Duh!

    Acid wash denim
    Your Jean legs "pegged" (you fold the bottom hem to make it right to your leg and then Roll it up to show your socks
    Two pairs of colorful socks
    Large plastic earrings
    Curly and large hair
    Colorful eye shadow
    Pink lipstick

    Edited to add:
