Social Circle: What's one song you'd put on an '80s mix tape?
Welcome to a weekly segment called "Social Circle." It's a group effort between readers, social networkers and the OnMilwaukee.com editors. Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in this column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.
This week, OnMilwaukee.com didn't want to make anyone think too hard, so the Social Circle question of the week was, "What's one song you'd put on an '80s 'mix tape?'" The totally tubular responses ranged from The Smiths to Toto to A-ha.
Add your favorite '80s song via the Talkback feature. And then go crimp your hair.
