Anti-Lolo and Lola Songs that Will Give You Power to Make it Through the Night (80s Edition)
While most of us may not have been alive during the era, the 80s were a great time. Big hair and loud fashion ruled pop culture, and the decade was home to a lot of great dance songs that artists now are doing their best to emulate.
While we may not belong to that generation, most of us feel like it at heart. With #yolo culture and the exhaustion it entails, we’d rather fast forward to Tito and Tita-dom and enjoy watching the young’uns from the comforts of our couch.
That said, nights out are inevitable, if only for the sake of our own sanity. If you don’t fall under that category and are legit Titos and Titas who are spending the wee hours of the morning awake with your little one, take your cue from the 80s with these songs that will help you power on through.
