For today’s edition of audio assignments, I was tasked with making a mix tape. It seemed like a fun thing to do, because with all the new software and platforms out these days like pandora and spotify, I haven’t sat down and made my own mix tape or playlist in years. As more of a movie watcher than a music listener, I generally only listen to multiple songs in a row if I’m in the car or working out so I decided to make a nice new workout mix tape that I can actually use. To keep with our 80’s pop culture topic, I only included major hits from the 80’s which actually worked out really well. They had a lot of iconic, great up beat or intense songs that get you pumped. Below is my personal Ultimate 80’s Jam:

  1. Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger
  2. Technotronic – Pump Up The Jam
  3. Duran Duran – Hungry like the Wolf
  4. Salt-N-Pepa – Push It
  5. Devo – Whip It
  6. Scorpins – Rock You Like A Hurricane
  7. Ozzy Osbourne – Crazy Train
  8. Kenny Loggins – Danger Zone
  9. Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It
  10. A Flock Of Seagulls – I Ran
  11. Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me
  12. Pat Benatar- Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Anyone out there that gives it a try, feel free to let me know what you think of it, or if I missed any really good ones that should be included.
