I need a list of retro songs

My birthday party is this weekend. (yes, belated)

I have to compile retro songs.

I have a bunch from the magic of limewire so far but being kiasu, I would rather have more so that everybody is happy. (I know it's an impossile task, but I will try.)

I've got Rick Ashley, Bananarama, Barry White, Level 42, Billy Idol, Lisa Stansfield, Men At Work, ABBA medley and songs from Barbarran days like I'm Horny etc.

You guys out there, please give me some suggestions!

Gimme your wish list!

I remember the pink cyclist used to have a list of these mambo-jumbo numbers in his "therodie blog" which is now defunct. I think theroadie is still out there either hiding or in an obvious disguise. You would help me out with these, would you?

You were a regular mambo-jumbo at Zouk and Bar Savanh.

HELP!

By the way for those of you who were born later in the 70s, the original singer of Uptown Girl is NOT Westlife. Its Billy Joel lah!

Retro music? That's like my middle name. Let me know if you'd like me to bring some CDs.

Sure. I have it in my iPod if u like. It is the definitive Picadilly Tea Dance Music and I have it by the following categories

1. Pre 1990 (the likes of Blow Monkeys, Cest'La Vie by Robbie Neville, Joy by Teddy Pendergrass, Swing Out Sister, Blackbox Ride On Time hehe)
2. 1990-92 (The Chimes, SWV, Tevin Campbell, The Kissing Game, Duran Duran, Sybil etc.)

Re: Theroadie.
Look for Sergei the emo[tak pasal] playground bully at dunkdatdonut.

He'd be happy to help you out.
