If you ever dreamed of taking a vacation to the Ewok village, if you know all the words to We Didn't Start the Fire but only came into consciousness around "Wheel of Fortune, Sally Ride", if you were always thankful to Judge Reinhold for serving no fries before their time or if you're not internationally known but you're known to rock a microphone, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80’s at 8. We’re kicking off the today’s with a song from 1984, the original version was a jam session with the Revolution and Shelia E’s band, and its 31 minutes long.. here’s the radio edit of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U”

From 1985 Jefferson Starship “We Built This City” If you've spent any time Right Here Waiting for Richard Marx's mullet, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80’s at 8 From 1980 Blondie “The Tide Is High”

From 1983 Naked Eyes “Always Something There To Remind Me”If you've ever taken a bath with Mr. Bubble, if you ever wanted to study "Quack Fu" under the tutelage of Howard the Duck or if you ever jammed as many pink and blue pegs into your Game of Life car without thinking about the grocery bill, then you’re in the right place this is the 80’s at 8 From 1986 Ne w Order “Bizarre Love Triangle”

From 1986 New Order “Bizarre Love Triangle” on the River 1059 that is ranked number 201 in Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time". Here is the answer to the timeline, in which year did each of the following things take place?

Dustin Hoffman gave us Dorothy Michaels, the ugliest woman ever, in Tootsie

The Equal Rights Amendment failed in Congress

& The Sarah Jessica Parker short-lived sitcom Square Pegs made its television debut in 1982.

That same year also saw the release of a song by a-way-ahead-of-his-time Adam Ant, who was so tired of the press constantly asking him questions about his personal life, that he wrote this as an act of retaliation. Here’s “Goody Two Shoes”

From 1983 UB40 “Red Red Wine” If you ever made frozen popsicles with fruit punch and an ice cube tray, if you still bring good things to life, and you never let em see you sweat or if the World Wide Web sounds like an arachnaphobes' worst nightmare, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80’s at 8, from 1984 Rockwell “Somebody’s Watching Me”

From 1985 Loverboy “Lovin Every Minute of It” If you think of twins whenever someone offers you a stick of gum or if you find it perfectly understandable that Alanis Morissette wrote "You Oughta Know" for Full House's uncle Joey, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 From 1980 Devo “Whip It”
