A Well-Rounded Education

Last night Hatfield and I went shopping. On the way home, You Spin Me Right Round by Dead or Alive played on the radio, so I cranked it up.

The Mister remembered the video:


which we promptly pulled up on YouTube. I especially dig the finger shaking on "You look like you're lots of fun" and eyepatch.

We homeschool to give our children the most in-depth, pace-appropriate well-rounded education possible. Which now includes a sociological study entitled:

Classic 80's Music Videos 101

So we need your help! What other songs/videos shall we include in our syllabus?

We can dance when we want to, we can leave your friends behind, We can dance and if they don't dance, well they're no friends of mine...

You have to include WHAM, Cindy Lauper, Madonna, Paula Abdul, and of course Culture Club!

Okay although some of these may require you to do additional lessons around them in areas that could cause you uncomfort here goes: Van Halen's, Hot For Teacher, Dire Straits, Money For Nothing and Eat It by Weird Al. All iconic 80's videos!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 80's music, this should be a part of all school curriculum at home or not!!

not to jump on the MJ bandwagon, but "Billie Jean" is still a great video.
