Fire up your iTunes...it's time to start downloading the Broke Girl's soundtrack to your '80s-inspired life!

(Broke Girl's Guide bloggers Erin Bunch and Michelle Vick put together two perfect mix tapes below!)

Don't you sometimes wish you could walk around with a soundtrack playing along to your every move, just like in the movies? Like, instead of telling a boy how you feel, you could just let sappy music swell as you stare deeply into his eyes? This has long been a fantasy of ours, so today we've created the perfect soundtrack to the life of an '80s-era Broke Girl, as well as the modern-day equivalent for us modern-day BG's. And while it'd kinda be fun (for about 5 minutes) to walk around with a boombox blaring on our shoulders (maybe that's why shoulder pads were so popular?), today we're extra-grateful for the 21st-century convenience of the iPod.

Now, fire up your iTunes...it's time to start downloading our soundtrack to your '80s-inspired life!
