I resisted the urge to use my Office DJ to promote every Jonas Brothers song ever produced, that I may or may not already have as my most used Spotify playlist. 

So instead, I thought about the fact that my dad cannot only tell you the name of any ‘80s song as soon as it starts playing, but also the year it was released, the album it was on and any interesting trivia about the artist. 

Yeah, not kidding. That man can even rattle off information about an obscure song from a one-hit-wonder that never came close to topping the charts. So I only felt it appropriate to pay homage to my dad by compiling his favorites on this ‘80s dad tunes rendition of Office DJ. 

Enjoy 80 of the best 1980s hits, from classic rock to the King of Pop.
