Classin' Up the 80's

This past weekend I started working on a mix. I was trying to combine two of my favorite types of music...lo-fi indie, folk and/or bluegrass, with cheesy 80's pop music. My mission was to find some great covers of 80's pop music and compile them into a mix that sounded more like any respectable indie/folk mix you might share with a friend. I accomplished this task, and have been listening to the result ever since.

Since I was so content with the result I thought I would share the tracklisting with you and include a few links for the songs with you guys. Enjoy!
