Flux Playlist: 80's Edition

-Flux Blog Staff

It’s week 4 of the term, which means it’s time to double check all of your syllabi and make sure you don’t have any midterms this week. But before we dive into all of the tests and assignment deadlines that will soon dictate our lives, we here at the Flux blog thought we would put together a playlist to remind us of a simpler time. A time when leg warmers and fingerless gloves were in style. A time when a singer named Madonna was just breaking onto the scene. A time when hair metal bands roamed the earth. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our 80’s edition playlist.
