It’s Valentine’s Day… Greeting Card Company Stock Value Increase Day… however you see it… you’re gonna hear some…. INTERESTING songs today… in every grocery store, gas station, dentist office, and perhaps if your hand accidently slips off the wheel and changes the station from 943 The Shark, your car.

Now the 80’s gave us some GREAT music. All of the Maiden, early Guns N Roses, Metallica and Def Leppard we can handle and even those bands had BALLADS! However…. that same decade also gave us Johnny Hates Jazz (WHY???) Icehouse, and The Jets (yes, there was a band called the Jets and they probably have more yards than then the football team’s last three QB’s).

It’s easy to remember these awful songs…. especially since we probably all had our first really awkward slow dance to one of them…. so like with everything in life… forget the bad, remember the good, Valentine’s Day will be over soon, Rock and Roll.
