So, a nearby radio station does a "send in your playlist" thing over lunch each day. They mostly play 80s pop during that time, calling it Retro Lunch. You pick 10 songs and they decide if they like your list. I don't really have a burning desire to deal with the radio station, but my mind has taken up the task of trying to create the lists. I've added the complication that I want tightly themed lists made of 80s songs that the average southern Indiana redneck would recognize.

Here's an example of an unfinished list I've come up with (I haven't ordered it yet into anything with proper flow, this is just a data dump):
Jamie's Crying - Van Halen
Sara Smile - Hall and Oates
Madelaine - Winger
Gloria - Laura Branigan
Luka - Suzanne Vega
Veronica - Elvis Costello
Sister Christian - Night Ranger
Jenny - Tommy Tutone
Valerie Loves Me - Material Issue (this one might be too indie)

Anyone wanna play? I've got half a dozen other themes rolling around, but I haven't really gotten serious about the whole "project" yet.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
Dallas Cowboys: Punt. Bring on the draft. / / Detroit Red Wings: Dylan Larkin, fastest All-Star EVAH!
