My Quest: The Best 80's Playlist EVER

It's not a secret that I love cheezy 80's music, and I thought I had a pretty respectable 80's playlist. But I frequently listen to Club 977, the best 80's Internet radio station, and they often will play songs that are conspicuously absent from my collection. So, I went to their website and found their complete playlist!

It contains 498 songs (and almost as many spelling errors). So, I cross referenced it with my collection of 2,971 songs to find that I only have 275 of the songs on their playlist. That means there are 223 rockin' 80's songs I need to dig up.

Here's a breakdown of the songs I have and need. If you happened to have any of these and you want to share, email me the file! (jarrett.heather at gmail dot com)
