Sam is five years old and likes to draw. His mom, Lori, likes '80s music. Here's what happens when Sam draws '80s music.

"Eyes Without a Face," Billy Idol, 1984


Nice use of negative space.

"Pour Some Sugar on Me," Def Leppard, 1987


Ebullient! Delightful! Sweet!

"Purple Rain," Prince, 1984

Raw. Stripped-down. Emotive. Angsty, with palpable Weltschmerz.

"Eye Of the Tiger," Survivor, 1982



The lyrics claim that the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night, but the artist has chosen to illustrate a sunny day. Bold choice.

"Hot For Teacher," Van Halen, 1984

Really captures the fiery, frenzied chaos that occurs when David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen work together. Bravo.

Lots more here!
