Community Event: Like, Totally 80s, by the Men's Chorus

*Rolling eyes* What is it with gay men and 80s music? I don't get it.

The end of the Cold War, Reaganomics, Beemers - all products of the 1980s. But, really, could any of these compare with the likes of Pat Benetar, Duran Duran, or Bruce Springsteen? The music of the 1980s became soundtracks of our lives. We woke up to a "Manic Monday" and by Wednesday "Everybody Was Working for the Weekend." Cyndi Lauper was wrong - it's more than just girls who wanna have fun!
I have -- ahem -- dated in and amongst the Men's Chorus, but haven't been to a show in literally years. They always put on a good show at Pride, though, and, apparently, at the AIDS Walk (I'm usually drinking my third or fourth cup of coffee when they perform and wishing I wishing I wasn't hung over when they sing at the Walk):

Hey, they aren't half bad! :-) But seriously, 80s music? If they sing any Madonna... well, I'll probably just laugh.

(Scans crowd for cute boys...)

I've always wondered why its the "Mens" Chorus and not "Gay Mens" Chorus

Ah hell. In 20 years, the chorus will be dominated by songs from the 90's. And won't that suck even more!
