Welcome to the 80’s at 8 blog, updated daily with each day’s show content and all the music videos for today’s show. If it's taken years, but you finally have your Hangin Tough dance down pat, if you know never to admit you're Sarah Connor, even if the former governor of California is asking, if you've ever slid into a room in your skivvies and socks, or if you ever wanted to party with Lewis Skolnick and the rest of the Tri-Lambs, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8. We’re kicking today’s show off with a song from 1989 by the B-52’s that was used in commercials all across the globe. Here’s “Roam”

From 1981 Hall and Oates “You Make My Dreams” If you ever wanted to study "Quack Fu" under the tutelage of Howard the Duck, if the Bundys will always have two children as far as you're concerned, and never Seven, or if you’d rather be a Greaser than a Soash, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8 From 1982 Quarterflash “Harden My Heart”

From 1986 The Bangles “Walk Like An Egyptian” If you think there's certainly nothing wrong a little pizza on our time, if you just wanna know what love is or if it seems you can't be sure of anything anymore, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8 From 1983 Berlin “No More Words”

From 1983 Berlin “No More Words” The band’s lead singer Terri Nunn left temporarily to break out on her own, although she eventually came back to Berlin, she found the time to appear on TJ Hooker and to audition for the role of Princess Leia; just imagine what she would have looked like with those buns! Here is the answer to the timeline, in which year did each of the following things take place?

Walter Cronkite announced his retirement from the CBS evening news

People all over the country were wondering who shot JR on Dallas

&Leslie Nielsen was serious, and don’t call him Shirley, in Airplane in 1980 That same year also saw the release of a song that based the guitar riff from Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman”. I played them back to back yesterday, and you can definitely hear it. Here’s Devo “Whip It”

From 1986 Belinda Carlisle “Mad About You” If Meg Ryan ever inspired you to have all your sauces on the side, if you see no need to be embarrassed by your collection of Ernest movies, or if you remember when you had to sunbathe if you wanted to tan, and nobody thought it was bad for you, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8 From 1982 Dexy’s Midnight Runners “Come On Eileen”

 

From 1982 Joe Jackson “Breaking Us in Two” if Mathew Broderick's computer setup in War Games was your all-time fantasy gift, if you had a front row seat for the weddings of both Charles and Di and Luke and Laura or if you know exactly what it sounds like when the doves cry, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8 From 1982 Madness “Our House”

From 1987 Crowded House “Something So Strong” If you grew up thinking Michelangelo, Donatello, Rafael and Leonardo were heroes in a half shell, if you still dream of getting all your friends together and finding One Eyed Willie's treasure or if you've always waited for the Sweet Pickles Bus to visit your house, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8 From 1986 Sly Fox “Let’s Go All The Way”
