Why 80s music will never die...

Though I'm not a particular fan of 80s music (I know, I'm the only one of my generation...), this weekend forced me to reevaluate my dismissal and to revel in music that was experimental, keytar-driven and, on occasion, rockin'.



Neil Patrick Harris hosted SNL on Saturday, and this was the highlight of a particularly good episode. Note the closing scene. Your inner 13 year old will love it.



Thanks to my friend who performs here as the first violinist and arranger of this stunning re-interpretation of an 80s classic.

This proves, once again, that being a teacher is *truly* the greatest job of all time. Seriously, folks. This counted as actual work!

AWESOME!!! Doogie Howser totally took me back! I never really watched it (I think I was just too young to really get into it), but I definitely remember the theme song (my mom watched it)!!!

I, too, have no love for 80's music.
