'Heard you missed me, I'm back!'

7

January

Castaway I'm fresh off the cruise ship and ready to get back into the 80s. No more distractions now!

No more eating crab legs, no more rock-hard mattresses and seasick mornings. And no more paying 47 cents a minute for web access to keep up with my beloved 80s nation!

I'm not sure how many of you out there have ever had a cruise vacation, but let me give you one insight: The worst part is the final morning when you're stuck sitting in a lounge for two hours, waiting for them to clear you to depart the ship. Thankfully, I had my iPod stacked full of 80s tunes for the occasion.

So until I have some 80s material to share with you, I present instead the actual songs I listened to while passing the time...

"Please, please, please, let me ... get off the boat -- right now!" Playlist -- 80s style:

  • Flat Earth Society -- Thomas Dolby
  • Boat Drinks -- Jimmy Buffet
  • When You Close Your Eyes -- Night Ranger
  • In Love with the 80s -- Reliant K
  • Vacation -- The Go-Go's
  • Mexican Radio -- Wall of Voodoo
  • Southern Cross -- Crosby Stills & Nash
  • Have a Drink On Me -- AC/DC
  • Sole Survivor -- Asia
  • Blue Highway -- Billy Idol
  • These Are The Times To Remember -- Billy Joel
  • Boys Don't Cry -- The Cure
  • Beach Party Vietnam -- The Dead Milkmen

For the record, I'm told I broke out singing with the Reliant K song came on. If you haven't downloaded that tune, I insist you do it now. In five minutes, you'll be singing at your desks.
