Little pink houses? Just buy mine instead



John_mellencamp John Mellencamp obviously had to be a rock singer -- he had no instincts for being a Realtor. Why wax poetically about a little pink house when you can buy my lovely 4-bedroom, 2-bath home in lovely Florida?

That's right. The "Stuck in the 80s" mansion is for sale, and today is an "Open House" so I need to find a dark corner in the universe to curl up in for 5 hours while complete strangers mock my Ferris Bueller and Weird Science posters. Not to mention my complete collection of Star Trek salt and pepper shakers. Mirror_mirror (Kirk is the salt; Spock is the pepper -- for those wondering -- except for my "Mirror Mirror" pair, in which they're curiously reversed.)

So to get the good mojo going, I've compiled a quickie playlist of home related songs from the 80s (or recorded by 80s artists -- hey, I needed a little extra wiggle room.)

Did I miss any obvious songs? And before you all start screaming about the obvious one, my Realtor, who lives next door, has specifically forbid me from putting the Talking Heads' "Burning Down the House" on this list!
