One of our favorite shows used to be “Whose Line is It Anyway?” and I loved when they would improvise a scene using song titles. So for our Friday Frivolity host theme of 80s music I wrote the following scene a la Whose Line.
Setting: a group of friends at a night club in Funkytown.
- Jack & Diane, two American kids growing up in the heartland
- Mickey, he’s so fine I lost my mind
- Sara, storms are brewin’ in her eyes
- Amanda, gonna take you by surprise
- Billie Jean, more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
Sara: I Love Rock n’ Roll.
Mickey: It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me
Amanda: Shout! Karma Chameleon!
Jack and Dianne: Two Hearts. Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Glory of Love. Together Forever.
Billy Jean: I Want to Know What Love Is
Mickey: Who’s That Girl. She Drives Me Crazy
Amanda: Who Can It Be Now?
Sara: Jessie’s Girl
Mickey: Oh Sheila! Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car! Need You Tonight
[Mickey chases after woman in the crowd]
Billie Jean: Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Jack: Baby, Come To Me. I Just Can’t Stop Loving You
Dianne: Anything For You. Every Breath You Take
Mickey: Maneater! Where Do Broken Hearts Go?
Billy Jean: Owner of a Lonely Heart
Sara: Another One Bites the Dust
Amanda: Don’t Worry Be Happy
Sara: Let’s Dance! Let’s Go Crazy! Flashdance . . . What A Feeling
Amanda: Rock me Amadeus!
Mickey: Venus! Here I Go Again. Come On Eileen. Don’t You Want Me?
[Mickey chases after another woman]
Sara: Time After Time
Amanda: Let’s Hear It For the Boy
Sara: With or Without You?
Billie Jean: I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
[Sara and Amanda go out on the dance floor]
Jack: Endless Love
Dianne: Saving All My Love For You
Jack: Greatest Love of All
Dianne: Heaven Is a Place On Earth
Jack: The Way You Make Me Fee.
Dianne: Forever Your Girl. Kiss
Billy Jean: You Give Love a Bad Name.
Jack: Beat It
Billie Jean: On My Own. Red Red Wine.
[Billie Jean heads to the bar]
Jack: Careless Whisper. I Think We’re Alone Now
Dianne: Baby, I Love Your Way
Jack: Invisible Touch
Dianne: Take My Breath Away
Jack: Can’t Fight This Feeling
Dianne: Do That To Me One More Time
Jack: Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now
Mickey: The Flame!
Sara: St.Elmo’s Fire!
Amanda: Chariots of Fire!
Billie Jean: Eternal Flame!
Jack and Dianne: We Didn’t Start The Fire
Billie Jean: Could’ve Been
Sara: Blame It On the Rain
Amanda: I Love A Rainy Night
Jack and Dianne: Hard to Say I’m Sorry
Billie Jean: Escape (The Pina Colada Song)!
Mickey: One More Try. Hello! Got My Mind Set on You. Baby Don’t Forget My Number. Call Me. [chases after a female firefighter]

Billie Jean: Out of Touch
