From 1982 Moving Pictures “What About Me” If you know better than to make a wish on a Zoltar machine, if you ever read a book and took a look at the TV in your head with Captain OG Readmore, or if you're still wondering when Rodney Dangerfield is gonna get some respect, this is the show for you, it is the 80's at 8, from 1989 the Fine Young Cannibals “She Drives Me Crazy”
From 1985 The Hooters “And We Danced” If you had a front row seat for the weddings of both Charles and Di and Luke and Laura, If you've ever spent more than five minutes trying to explain the premise of Weekend at Bernie's to someone, or if you ever wanted your own Robocop to fend off creeps in your city, you are in the right place, this is the 80's at 8, from 1982 After The Fire “Der Kommissar”
