'80s headlines for 2009



The new year is barely a week old and already I'm thinking of 2010, when I can write up a brilliant (and largely unappreciated) summary of the '80s-related news of 2009. Here are just some of the headlines I'm hoping for:

  • Oingo Boingo reunites for annual Halloween show in Tampa Bay
  • Martha Quinn joins as full-time co-host of Stuck in the '80s podcast
  • Police burn stash of Members Only jackets found in Detroit suburb
  • Members Only fan club burns stash of Police albums found in Detroit suburb
  • John Cusack agrees to sequels for Say Anything, Better Off Dead, The Sure Thing
  • Annabeth Gish becomes assistant '80s blogger for
  • Vegas Girlfriend becomes Vegas Roommate
  • Brat Pack to star in modern remake of Chariots of Fire
  • Ione Skye agrees to become assistant to assistant '80s blogger for
  • ZZ Top members wake up in Clearwater hotel and find beards shaved
  • Times pop music critic survives miracle beard transplant surgery; thanks ZZ Top
  • Madonna calls it quits from music career; 'I suck now' she confesses
  • Bryan Adams releases box set of '80s hits, tentatively called "I'm sorry, Steve. I do love the '80s."
