Ah, 80's hits. I knew you were one cool chick. Thank God I was a good girl and worked all day today, or I would have gotten nothing done until I figured all these out myself. Great idea!

But the lyrics aren't what will be keeping me up tonight, it's the melodies. They'll collage in my brain until I'm wistful with memories of yesteryear. Ah...
