    Forever Young from Alphaville was and is one of my favorites. Hope the reunion goes well. Mine is in July!

    Hi, there! Welcome.

    In no particular order:

    Strut by Sheena Easton
    When You Close Your Eyes, Sister Christian by Night Ranger
    Rock of Ages by Def Leppard
    Throw in anything by Bon Jovi EXCEPT Wanted Dead or Alive. If I have to hear that one more bleepin' time....

    I'm sure I've forgotten hundreds.

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?

    defintely find out what their class song was, prom song and all that stuff. there may even be some groups (clicks) that had songs that totally goes with them. you know like the rock stuff, or rap, or alternative. are they going to get you a list?
    i know we are planning our 20th and i think we are just taking requests and then putting it all on an ipod or something like that.

    Re: 1988 Class Reunion Music

    I've done many class reunions in my years and find most people don't want music from the years they were in school.

    That being said, here are some 80's songs I still play out on a regular basis:

    Loco-motion-Kylie Minogue
    Love shack-B-52's
    Bust a move-Young MC
    It takes two-Rob Base
    You dropped a bomb on me-Gap Band
    Let it whip-Dazz Band
    Superfreak-Rick James
    You shook me all night long-AC/DC
    Pour some sugar on me-Def Leppard
    I love Rock N Roll-Joan Jett
    Billie Jean-Michael Jackson
    Kiss-Prince
    Into the groove-Madonna
    Electric boogie-Marcia Griffiths
    Wild thing-Tone Loc
    Come on Eileen-Dexy's Midnight Runners
    Mickey-Toni Basil
    Tainted love-Soft Cell
    Relax-Frankie Goes to Hollywood
    You give love a bad name-Bon Jovi
    Talk dirty to me-Poison
    Jessie's girl-Rick Springfield
    Let's groove-Earth Wind and Fire

    etc. etc. etc.

    you're dispicable!

    It ended up going outstanding. I mixed it up like I planned on doing. It was on a boat & on the way over I played 80's rap & metal for the few that cut loose that early...(Born to Be My Baby, Girls, Girls, Girls, You Dropped a Bomb on Me, All Summer Long by Kid Rock, Oh Sheila, Too Shy-Kajagoogoo, Jungle Love, Pour Some Sugar On Me,(people STILL aren't tired of it)...
    and on the way back I made my way from the 90's (Jump Around, Insane in the Membrane, etc...right up to the present with Flo-Rida, Ray Jay, Mims, the Cupid Shuffle & a bunch of other current stuff that kept the deck packed all the way back until we pulled in then I ended with "Purple Rain" & "This Is The Time" by Billy Joel. Thanx for the suggestions! Maybe all this will help somebody in a similar situation!
