Welcome to the 80’s at 8 blog, updated daily with today’s show content and the music videos for all the songs we’ve played! If CC Deville ever convinced you it was OK to be a man in makeup, if you ever wished you could grab a snack and a drink at the Regal Beagle, if you ever got shot down cause you were overzealous, or if you've ever asked yourself what would Ronald Reagan do, then this is the show for you; it’s the 80s at 8 powered by Neil Finn from Crowded House at The Shubert Theater on April 10th. We’re starting today’s show off with a song that wasn’t played all that much on the Radio, but was all over MTV. From 1986 Human League “Human”
From 1986 Todd Rundgren “Bang The Drum All Day” If you know from experience that a little Love's Baby Soft goes a long way, if you don't want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything as a career, or if you ever Did the Right Thing just because Spike Lee told you to, then you’re listening to the right station; it’s the 80s at 8, and From 1986 The Bangles “Walk Like An Egyptian”
From 1989 Fine Young Cannibals “She Drives Me Crazy” If you're still mad that When Harry Met Sally convinced you Billy Crystal was hot, if you've had nightmares involving 80 ft marshmallow men, if the hardest decision you made on a daily basis was leather and denim, or if you agree with Danielson that a flyswatter would be faster, then you’re in the right place; it’s the 80s at 8 From 1980 Christopher Cross “Ride Like The Wind”

From 1981 Hall and Oates “Kiss On My List” If you can forgive Brian Wilson for not taking you down to Kokomo because Uncle Jesse did, if you could be the Walrus, but you'd still have to bum rides off people, or if you know more than one Michael Jackson joke, then this is the show for you; it’s the 80s at 8 From 1983 Berlin “No More Words”
From 1987 George Michael “Faith” If you know never to admit you're Sarah Connor, even if the former governor of California is asking, if you'd change political parties for Alex P.
