Welcome to the 80’s at 8 blog, updated daily with each day’s show content and the music videos for all the songs we’ve played! If you ever stocked your fridge with ice-cold TAB for your friends, if there are multiple photos of you in short shorts and tube socks, if you had so many swatches you couldn’t fit them all on both your arms AND legs, or if you remember having to hide magazines under the mattress instead of in folders on your desktop, this is the show for you; It is the 80’s at 8, coming up at 9:00 this morning is your chance to win a $3,000 shopping spree, that’s right, $3,000. Today’s show kicks off with a song that stood out from the rest at the time by the notably different role the piano played. From 1984 The Go-Go’s “Head Over Heels”

 

From 1987 Crowded House “Something So Strong” If you're still having nightmares about Judge Doom, Large Marge and the Peculiar Purple Pie Man, If you're still clutching your copy of The Official Preppy Handbook, If you're still humming the Ewok "yub nub" song, or If you're still mad your mom wouldn't spring for a Designer Series Trapper Keeper, you are in the right place, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1986 Sly Fox “Let’s Go All The Way”

 

From 1987 Richard Marx “Don’t Mean Nothing” If you're hoping to have a baby boy someday who could appreciate your Transformers and Castle of Greyskull or If you're hoping to have a baby girl someday so you can pass on all your Sweet Valley High books and Care Bears, you are on the right station; this is the 80’s at 8 from 1983 The Motels “Suddenly Last Summer”
