Bouncy Music List

Mostly 1980s with a little from the 1970s.

Opinion page by Duane Alan Hahn.

Table of Contents

My sister wanted a list of bouncy 1980s music in May of 2014, so I made this page. The songs are in the order they debuted on the weekly top 100 (thanks to weeklytop40.wordpress.com). There are also useful links to YouTube and comments when a song is slow, slowish, or semi-bouncy.

Sister in New York (2004)

While my sister was on vacation in New York, she stopped in front of the TGI Friday's Times Square EarthCam for a few seconds on Sunday, September 5, 2004. As she talked to me on the phone, I captured images from the EarthCam so I could put together the animations you see below. I got permission to use the images, so remember that all you can do is view them. You do not have permission to put them on other web sites and you do not have permission to hotlink to them. If you want people to see these images, just send them to this page.
