You may recall that for her birthday, we did the 80s power ballad sing alongs. I talked about it here and again here. Well, I wasn’t that good then, but last night, I shined. Like a giant shiny day glo disco ball. Last night we attended Rock the Casbah with DJ Mel at the Parish. Now we’re talking 80s pop and dance music. all. night. long. Madonna, Prince, Wham, Duran Duran, Yes. I knew almost all of it. It was clear to any bystander that I did, as well as my crew, as we shouted and sang and danced.
These are some 5 star costumes. Teen Wolf was only one of the entourage of 20+ the best friend brought out last night. It was a trip, there was so much to see and point at and danced to. From “Our House” to “Our Lips Are Sealed”, I’ve never crooned and swayed and jived more passionately. The only thing(s) that could have made this night a better way to spend our last Saturday night in Austin are if JC my super rockin’ dance partner had been there and I was able to give out awards, including but not limited to the following categories:
- Best Use of a Scrunchie
- Best Sunglasses Worn at Night
- Most Unique Interpretation of an 80s Dance Move
- Cutest Boy in a Members Only Jacket
- Best Stonewash of Jean
- Highest Side Ponytail
MK pulled out a little dance move for Depeche Mode that completed my night and vaulted it in my memory as the greatest dance party of all time.
Party all the time, party all the time…
Tell me, what is your most hoppin’-ist 80s dance song?
