80s at 8 for 5-7-2014

 

Welcome to the 80s at 8 blog, updated daily with each day’s show content and the music videos for all the songs we’ve played. If "Angel Eyes" or "When I See You Smile" remind you of middle school dances and all the attendant awkwardness, if Heathers made you wonder what the deal was with the Moby Dick Eskimo, if Howard the Duck ever led you to consider falling in love with a barnyard animal or if I say "Miss Susie had a steamboat" and the lyrics will be stuck in your head all day, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8  We’re kicking today’s show off with a song from 1982 that was originally recorded by Falco but thought that it wouldn’t crack the American charts so they encouraged English-speaking bands to record it Turns out he was right Here’s “After The Fire”

From 1982 Peter Gabriel “Shock The Monkey” If it never entered into your mind to wonder why Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx are still alive, if taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot or if you always wished you could buy a car from Joe Isuzu, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80’s at 8 From 1982 Chicago “Hard To Say I’m Sorry”

From 1987 Richard Marx “Don’t Mean Nothing” If you know you don't need no credit card to ride this train, if you laugh at people who think Wham's "Careless Whisper" is entitled "Never Gonna Dance Again" or if you still remember how to do Balki Bartakamous's Dance of Joy, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80’s at 8 From 1988 Billy Ocean “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car”

From 1984 Cyndi Lauper “She Bop” If you still think that Starburst are a pale imitation of Bonkers, if you'd rather be with someone for the wrong reasons than be alone for the right or if you're undecided on the Roth/Hagar debate but "Gary Cherone" is not in your vocabulary, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 From 1982 Madness “Our House”
