From 1985 here’s Katrina and the Waves “Walking on Sunshine” If you'd eat chilled monkey brains just because Indiana Jones told you to, if Patrick Dempsey could buy you love any day of the week, or you were always thankful to Judge Reinhold for serving no fries before their time, this is the show for you, it is the 80's at 8, from 1984 Murray Head “One Night in Bangkok”
From 1985 by Level 42 “Something About You” If your emotions are still conflicted over Milli Vanilli being forced to give up their Grammy, if I say "Miss Susie had a steamboat" and the lyrics will be stuck in your head all day, or if you still can't decide between Jessica Rabbit, Jessica Hahn and Sarah Jessica Parker, you’re in the right place, this is the 80's at 8, from 1981 The Go-Go’s “Our Lips are Sealed”

From 1987 Cutting Crew “I Just Died in Your Arms” If your three main rules are not to cross the streams, to never feed a Mogwai after midnight or to say Beetlejuice three times, or if you ever should have bought stock in Aquanet or Wet and Wild, this is the show for you, it is the 80's at 8, from 1984 Dan Hartman “Can Dream About You”
