Thank you for visiting the 80’s at 8 blog, updated daily with each day’s show content and the music videos from all the songs we played! We kick off today’s show with a song from 1985 that helped the band win an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist, here is Til Tuesday “Voices Carry”
From 1987 Cutting Crew “I Just Died in Your Arms” If you're still waiting for Bruce Willis and Jack Wagner to resurrect their music careers, if you've got the jigawatts it takes to get a Dolorean up to 88 miles per hour, or if you ever told ‘em Large Marge sent ya, you are in the right place, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1983 Todd Rundgren “Bang the Drum All Day”
From 1982 Stray Cats “Rock This Town” If you still have a crush on Lea Thompson even though she dated a duck, if you've ever given Long Duck Dong his props, or if you know Garfield's favorite snack is lasagna and ALF's favorite snack is Garfield, you are on the right station, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1986 Belinda Carlisle “Mad About You”
Here is the answer to our 80s timeline, in which year did the following things take place?
The musical Cats began its 18 year run on Broadway.
Sam Malone poured the first of many beers for his lovable crowd of losers on Cheers.
& Phoebe Cates made quite an impression on Judge Reinhold and the rest of the Ridgemont High boys in her red bikini, in 1982, and that year, Duran Duran released on of their best known songs, here’s “Rio”
From 1986 Glass Tiger “Someday” If you still search Burger Kings hoping to find Herb the Nerd, if you're saving up for a Fast Car and have your eye on a Pink Cadillac or a Little Red Corvette, if you know nothing comes between Lea Thompson and her Calvin Klein, except maybe Howard the Duck, or if you'd never invite Shannon Doherty into Our House because she's such a Heather, you’re in the right place, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1987 Richard Marx “Don’t Mean Nothing”
From 1987 Motley Crue “Girls, Girls, Girls” If you ever returned to Oz with Fairuza Balk and totally forgot about Judy Garland, if you think there's certainly nothing wrong a little pizza on our time, or if you're still trying to figure out who shot JR on Dallas, you’re in the right place, this is the 80's at 8, from 1987 T’Pau “Heart and Soul”
From 1983 The Greg Kihn Band “Jeopardy” If you know the A-Team are soldiers of fortune on the run from the Army after being branded as war criminals for a "crime they didn't commit”, or if you were actually proud that there was a Garbage Pail Kid with your name, this is the show for you, it is the 80's at 8, from 1986 Bangles “Manic Monday"
