This new version of "Reelin' in the Years" focuses where the original leaves off...on the music from the eighties, nineties and noughts (or should that be "oh-oh's"?. Sorry, couldn't resist a bad pun!)

The rules are exactly the same. I'll start this game with a song from 1981. The next player chooses a song from 1982. The third player chooses from 1983...and so on, and so on, and so on, until we hit 2009. Then we start all over again at 1981.

As before, one entry per person, please!

Let's start rockin' with...

1981 -- I Love a Rainy Night -- Eddie Rabbitt

...now you take it from here!
