I’m a big fan of 80’s music. So when I started hearing new music, that totally sounds like the 80’s, I took notice. And when I got a sneak peek of GLOW on Netflix (coming June 23rd) I knew it was the perfect time to share one of my favorite playlists. GLOW, as in Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, is a 30 minute comedy that is sure to be your new favorite. The music they play in the show is from the 80’s. My playlist sounds like the 80’s, but it’s not. I think you’re going to love this 80’s inspired playlist.This post is written in partnership with Netflix. As part of their #StreamTeam, I watch lots of TV and share my faves with you. It’s a rough job but someone has to do it.
I grew up in the 80’s. But I was too young to do anything super cool like go to a club in LA. I mean, my bangs were pretty high through junior high school but my 80’s were mainly spent playing with Cabbage Patch Dolls and making up dances on the front lawn of our house. Movies like Valley Girl were my FAVORITE and the music from that movie was SO good. I wasn’t in to the pop music from the 80’s. My best friend’s older brother was goth-ish and listened to the good stuff, the alternative stuff, like the Smiths, and The Cure and was super cool to me and made me mixed tapes. It’s that type of first wave stuff that I adore, especially the warbly music from all the 80’s movies, which you can totally hear in this 80’s inspired playlist. Many of the songs on this list fit right in with that 80’s alterna vibe. And I totally dig it. This playlist is great for hanging out with friends, but most likely will confuse them. They’ll think you are stuck in a different era. Which is totally cool. I’m not suggesting you pull out the fingerless gloves or tease your hair, but my ears are all 80’s.
GLOW is the fictional retelling of the ladies wrestling organization that began in the late 80’s. I found a video from the actual Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling program opening credits on YouTube and I totally remembered some of the gals! I didn’t watch it every time it was on. But it was funny and always entertaining. Netflix is always so creative with their series’! Due to an embargo on reviews until closer to the release date, I’m not going to go in to detail on the show or the characters. Just know I’m going out of my mind because I’ve seen two episodes and now have to wait until June 23rd to binge the rest of it! How will I make it through?! SO GOOD!
I’m also super pumped for Quantico, Season 2 (June 14) – I was in a bad binge on the first season. I may just try to power through the second season in a weekend so I don’t miss out on too much of life… And, of course, Season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
