#Playlist – 80’s Dance Hits

80's dance hits


I am a kid of the eighties who absolutely loves 80’s dance hits.  The era of big hair and luminescent eyeshadow.  It was also the era of fantastically quirky club anthems that I just cannot get enough of.  Back then being Rick-rolled had nothing to do with memes.  The fashion, the flair, the towering hair…they can keep all of that. Give me the music.  Those beats get me dancing every time.  Now, I have no idea what an 80’s nightclub was like (being born at the beginning of that decade and all) but I do know what an 80’s jol (dance) is like in my bakkie (pick-up truck) on a Friday afternoon.  I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you here.  It is Friday, after all.  Hope you sing and dance along.  Happy Friday! 🙂


  1. “Strangelove” – Depeche Mode


2. “I.O.U” – Freeez


3. “Together Forever” – Rick Astley


4. “Clouds Across the Moon” – The Rah Band


5. And my personal favourite, of course…”Precious Little Diamond” – Fox the Fox


Hope you enjoyed this little list.  Are you into 80’s dance hits?  What are some of your favourites?  Let me now in the comments.


Have an awesome weekend folks 🙂

  1. Oooh I probably know all the words to the songs in your list!! My absolute favorite music of all time!! Then there was Wham and 3T just to mention a few boy bands which was a big thing in those years. Aaah so nice to reminisce. Hope you don’t mind Shelly, but I’d really like you to check out my post “If not now” then you’ll understand how much I appreciate your list….IT’S MY JAMS!!
