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 know exactly what Miss Mary Mack was wearing, if you know exactly which Hollywood Square Jim J. Bullock was in, if you know from experience that a little Love's Baby Soft goes a long way or if you know it's "Risky Business" being chased by Guido the killer pimp, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 powered by McDonald’s We kick off today’s show with a song from 1982 sometimes mistaken to be about shock therapy Here’s Peter Gabriel “Shock The Monkey.” From 1981 Hall & Oates “Kiss On My List” If you know more than one Michael Jackson joke, if you know never to stay in a hotel with Jack Nicholson, even if it's just the Marriott or if you know that Arnold Jackson had a goldfish named Abraham and a terrible fear of the Gooch, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 Now from 1980 Blondie “The Tide Is High.” From 1986 Wang Chung “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” If you know that E.T. loves Reeses Pieces, if you know that Crispy Critters were indubitably delicious or if you know that Goonies never say die, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 Now from 1985 Eurythmics “Would I Lie To You?” Here is the answer to today’s timeline, in which year did each of the following things take place? Michael Jackson won Grammies for Album and Record of the Year with Thriller and Beat It. Def Leppard's drummer Rick Allen lost his left arm in a car wreck. And Bill Murray learned that there is no Dana, only Zuul, in the year’s biggest movie in 1984 That same year this song won Grammies for song of the year, record of the year and best female vocal performance Here’s Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” From 1985 David Lee Roth “California Girls” If you know that only you and Smokey the Bear can prevent forest fires, if you know that parents who use drugs have children who use drugs or if you know that workin 9 to 5 is all takin and no givin, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 Now from 1983 Kajagoogoo “Too Shy.” From 1983 Kajagoogoo “Too Shy” Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran got the band signed to their label EMI, and Rhodes produced this track with Colin Thurston, who produced Duran Duran's first two albums. You can see the music video for that song and all the other songs from today’s show at theriver1059.com. Coming up a song guest starring “Dire Straights” lead singer Mark Knofler Find out who it is in 4.5 minutes. From 1980 Steely Dan “Hey Nineteen”. If you know the next time someone asks you if you're a God you say yes, If you know that only you and Smokey the Bear can prevent forest fires or If you liked Anthony Michael Hall better when he was a geek, you’re in the right place. Now from 1986 Cutting Crew (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight” From 1982 “After The Fire” If you still can't decide whether you'd rather cruise around town in a time-traveling DeLorean or KITT, if you still can't decide whether Tony or Angela was really the boss or if you still get cravings for an Orange Julius from the mall, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8
