Mrs Kyte's '80's Friday' Playlist

As a result of many requests from Tigers  the '80's Friday' playlist is here and will be added to weekly- sorry parents!  

Feel free to send in your requests via your child's contact book or add in the comments below. Must be eighties though!

Thumbnails included so the children (or yourselves) can listen.

A very rare 2nd '80's video this week. Nicolas' dad's other choice became an instant hit with the class, so much so, we had to listen to it twice and another track by the same group. A group- I have to admit - I hadn't heard of. So the new 'suoer group' of Tigers is below - enjoy the true essence of the eighties :)

  • mystery guest 9 months ago
    could I have instant karma by the beatles
  • Mrs Kyte 9 months ago
    Hi 'Mystery Guest' . Unfortunately Instant Karma by John Lennon was released February 1970. Yep it's even older than me ...just! Therefore it won't qualify for 80's Friday but should we extend the years to 70's I will keep it in mind. In the meantime keep working on using those capital letters hahaha !

    Thank you so much for introducing this Mrs Kyte - Zack absolutely loves it and can’t wait to tell us which song you’ve chosen. We love hearing Zack’s enthusiasm as this is very much our era!

    Hi Zack - I got the requests from your mum. I know you are a rocker but we have to appreciate all aspects of the eighties :) I wanted We will Rock You - but sadly it was a '70's classic. I am using other suggestions and rest assured we will be coming to Queen soon . Happy Weekend ! Mrs K :)
