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! From 1983 Taco “Puttin’ On the Ritz” If you ever got in trouble for making a slam book, if you ever held out hope that Cliff and Claire would adopt you, if you ever held the high score on a game of Pac-Man, only to have your brother beat it the very next game or if you ever made frozen popsicles with fruit punch and an ice cube tray, then you’re in the right place; this is the 80’s at 8 From 1982 Hall & Oates “Maneater” From 1985 Katrina and the Waves “Walking on Sunshine” If you ever owned a piece of frosted denim…or get a hankering for some Ecto Cooler Hi-C, if you ever picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue, if you ever pitied the fool who didn't watch A-Team or if you ever programmed your Speak and Spell to say dirty words, then you’ve come to the right place. From 1986 it’s Europe with “The Final Countdown” Here is the answer to the timeline, in which year did each of the following things take place? The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame saw its first induction ceremony, honoring artists like Elvis, Chuck Berry, and James Brown. An Alien Life Form better known as ALF crash landed in the Tanners' suburban garage and stayed for four years. And Rodney Dangerfield went Back to School to try to get some respect in one of the year’s funniest movies in 1986. That same year Bananarama took a song written by Shocking Blue in 1969 and turned it into a hit you know and love Here’s “Venus” From 1987 “Faith” by George Michael If you ever put on side one of Led Zeppelin 4 with the hopes of making out, if you ever read at night by the light of your Glow Worm, if you ever read George Orwell's 1984 because you were inspired by a Mac commercial or if you ever rigged up an entire game of Mousetrap without throwing it out the window, then you’re in the right place From 1986 The Bangles “Manic Monday.” From 1989 Skid Row “I Remember You” That song was the number one prom song that year You can find the video for that song and the rest of today’s song on theriver1059.com keyword “80s” The 80’s at 8 will continue next with a song that had 3 music videos and all three were banned by both MTV and the BBC Find out who it was in four and a half minutes From 1985 Frankie Goes to Hollywood “Relax” If you ever saved yourself from a biker brawl by hopping on a bar and dancing to "Tequila", if you ever spend your night awake so Freddy doesn't get you, or if you ever spent any time dancing on the ceiling with Lionel Richie, then you’re in the right place From 1985 Dream Academy “Life in a Northern Town” From 1985 “Life in a Northern Town” by Dream Academy If you ever used a Cyndi Lauper video as an excuse to rally the girls for drinks, if you ever wanted a Platoon or a Full Metal Jacket of your very own or if you ever wanted to join Weird Al on a trip to Spatula City, you’ve come to the right place From 1983 its MJ with “Beat It”
