Rick, must you drag me back to high school and college?! You pretty much listed the soundtrack to my educational years. :lol:

You did miss one great one -- "Is This Love" by Whitesnake featuring the divine Tawney Kitaan (who, incidentally, appeared on Santa Barbara as Lisa DiNapoli, sister of Celeste and Emily, played by Signey Coleman and Julie Condra respectively) in the video. She also did the famous "car dance" in "Here I Go Again."

Absolutely! I was a metal fan from about 1985 to 1990 - ah the "big hair days" as they were called back then.

Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Warrant, Poison, Cinderella, White Snake, White Lion, Ratt, Scorpions, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Vixen ....etc.

Then got into Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Skynard, Meatloaf, Boston, Doors, Clapton, Foreigner ...etc. Still listen to all of them. I was just born in the wrong era. Love most from the late 60s to the late 80s.

Saw Trixter in concert .... during a blizzard, middle of winter, and got stranded at the venue - luckily it was attached to a hotel where we could get a room for the night - all 6 of us! Walked 4 blocks in 3 feet of snow for pizza and soda at midnight - ah ... good times!!

Saw Whitesnake and Faster Pussycat in concert too - oh back in 1987 - I think then tickets were $15 - Bon Jovi at the Spectrum in Philly in 1986 - the best years of my youth!

I'm an 70s and 80s power ballad queen. I just sing my heart out when I hear them come on.

Of course, we have to mention Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler. Probably the best and most dramatic 80s power ballad EVER!

    • I've finally passed episode 800 and first of all: - They're really messing up this whole time travel theory thing - Barnabas wants the Collins family history book that Victoria brought with her to 1796, but since Eve went back in time in 1968 to retrieve it, it shouldn't be there, right? Only in Dark Shadows logic, since Eve went back for the book in 1968 that hasn't happened yet, but theoretically it surely has since she went back to 1796 to get it? This hurts my nerd brain very very much. The worst part is that we already knew that the Collinses had put down that Quentin travelled abroad so it was a pretty pointless exercise. - Slaughtered unicorns has to be the most random thing ever. Love all the Kitchener references - I guess they couldn't say out loud that Petofi is gay af, so they just rounded the problem by referencing to an infamously gay officer.
    • Jenny Bransford still very much looks like herself. Looks like she's been busy in the Social Education Field over the last few years.   I think SJB still looks like herself but she definitely lost a ton of weight - perhaps having celiac disease might have something to do with it?
