Welcome to the 80’s at 8 blog, updated daily with the day’s show content and the music videos for all the songs we’ve played! If you ever held out hope that Cliff and Claire would adopt you, if you ever stuck someone with a defective hippo because you knew it wasn't hungry hungry enough, if you ever wanted to install a dumbwaiter in your house so you could be just like Webster, or if you ever wish Ferris were there to get you out of summer school, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8. We’re kicking today’s show off with a song whose title means “Everything OK, officer?” in German. From 1982 After the Fire “Der Kommissar”

From 1986 Kim Wilde “You Keep Hangin’ On” If you ever wished for a game of Clue with Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd, if you still have a secret Scrunchie sock collection in your closet, or if you know Alf would not be a good choice as a cat-sitter then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8 From 1982 Madness “Our House”

From 1982 Duran Duran “Rio” If you know exactly what Miss Mary Mack was wearing or if you know that E.T. loves Reeses Pieces than you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8 From 1981 Loverboy “Turn Me Loose”

From 1989 here is B-52’s “Love Shack” If you still can't decide whether your favorite Dorito is nacho or cool ranch, if you still find yourself wanting to get Less Than Zero with Robert Downey Jr., or if you still remember all the lyrics to Fraggle Rock, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8 Here is Frida “I Know There’s Something Going On”

From 1981 Human League “Don’t You Want Me” If you still think John Candy could have finished The Old 96er in The Great Outdoors, if you still think your Ocean Pacific jacket was the height of style or if you still want to take a Vacation with Chevy Chase to Wally then you’re in good company; this is the 80s at 8 From 1986 OMD “If You Leave”

From 1989 Roy Orbison “You Got It” If you think the choice between Luke Skywalker and Han Solo is obvious, if you watched too much "You Can't Do That on Television" and still can't bring yourself to say "I don't know" or "water", if you were ever jealous of uncle Jesse's hair (or drum skills), if you know the words to every song on this show, but sometimes can’t remember why you walked into your kitchen, then you are listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8 From 1983 Wall of Voodoo “Mexican Radio”
