Thanks for visiting the 80's at 8 blog, updated daily with each day's show content and the music videos for all the songs we played! If you ever stashed the tiny key to your diary in the pocket of your Popple, if you ever rushed home from school to watch After School Specials with titles like "High School Narc" and "Just Tipsy, Honey," if you ever spent all your allowance on Garbage Pail Kids and Big League Chew, or if you know exactly what it sounds like when the doves cry, you’re in the right place. We kick off today’s show with a song from 1984 that was performed by Mike Tyson in the Hangover 2. This version is just a little bit better Here’s Murray Head “One Night in Bangkok.”

From 1984, Nena “99 Red Balloons” If you know that Crispy Critters were indubitably delicious!, if you know that E.T. loves Reeses Pieces, or if you know that Melvilles was the Restaurant upstairs from Cheers, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 Now from 1982 Berlin “The Metro.”
From 1988 Robert Palmer “Simply Irresistible” If you know that parents who use drugs have children who use drugs, if you know that the Thundercats lived on Third Earth, if you know that workin 9 to 5 is all taking and no giving, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 Now from 1984 Wang Chung “Dance Hall Days.”
Here is the answer to today’s timeline, in which year did each of the following things take place? NBC News anchor Jessica Savitch drowned in a car accident three weeks after a disastrous broadcast KISS appeared for the first time in public without makeup on MTV Tom Cruise went from being a Princeton hopeful to being on the run from Guido the Killer Pimp in Risky Business in 1983. That same year MJ released this song that lead to the invention of the moonwalk and the infamous one white glove look on the 25 Years of Motown TV show. Here’s “Billie Jean”
From 1983 UB40 “Red Red Wine” If you know who Stinky Sullivan is, if you know you don't need no credit card to ride this train or if you laugh at people who think Wham's "Careless Whisper" is entitled "Never Gonna Dance Again." Now from 1980 Steely Dan “Hey Nineteen.”
From 1980 Steely Dan “Hey Nineteen” That song features guest appearances from Mark Knofler of Dire Straits and Rick Derringer of The McCoys You can see the videos for every song on today’s show on keyword “80s.” The 80’s at 8 will continue next with a song by an artist who was once quoted saying his album was better than The Beatles’ Sgt.

Now from 1982 Duran Duran “Rio.”
