Anybody who had MTV in 1987 remembers Jon Astley's Jane's Getting Serious. While the video was a hit, the song stalled on the charts only reaching No. 77 on the U.S. charts. The song was even catchy enough that it was featured on a popular Heinz ketchup commercial in 1987 that featured a RELATED ►POST PROFILESHARE ►
Coachella 2014 has attracted its usual share of '80s legends. This year's lineup will include a Replacements reunion along with performances by the Pet Shop Boys, Bryan Ferry, The Cult and a few scattered others.
By the mid-‘80s, British pop was still going strong and frequently tasty little nuggets emerged from across the pond including Prefab Sprout’s Appetite.
Han Solo and Boba Fett will be the subject of two Star Wars spinoff movies after the new Episode VII is filmed, according to reports. Apparently I'm the last to know this.
Elvis Presley would have been 79 years old today. Here at Stuck in the '80s, we gather to celebrate (well, recognize) the big "Elvis movie" of the '80s: Heartbreak Hotel.
Could it be possible that movies we watched in theaters in 1984 turn THIRTY YEARS OLD this year? Bizarre. Can you imagine back in 1984, people might have been pining away for movies made in 1954?? Whoa. "Oh sure, Gremlins is cute, but you kids should have seen Creature from the Black Lagoon or Dial M For Murder."
I'm a sucker for any snapshots from 1985's Live Aid. So this one, with David Bowie, Chris Taylor, Brian May, Roger Taylor, Princess Diana, Prince Charles and Bob Geldof watching the show at Wembley Stadium, is RELATED ►POST PROFILESHARE ►
Young man! It appears the Village People anthem YMCA isn't about gays. So says the onetime lead singer of the Village People, so Gawker's story appears to be well founded.
Stuck in the '80s has finally reached 300 episodes. Only took us, let's see, eight years or so? Enjoy the one because the odds of us reaching 600 are slim! And besides, this show features the return of an old friend.
It's 2014 and a new year. If you are looking for good New Year's Day songs, the most popular and obvious pick would be U2's New Year's Day or perhaps you remember Lost and Found profiling ABBA's Happy New Year last February - but in true Lost and Found fashion, we'll dig up the more forgotten New Day For You by …
I always love a song that either name drops another band or song and today's obscure Lost and Found entry is a song that gives us both.
It's 2014 and time for a Steve Perry update. The former Journey frontman has reportedly been working on new solo material for a couple years, but the music you're more likely to hear from him this year …
Electric Light Orchestra was a constant force from the mid-‘70s to the early ‘80s with twenty Top 40 hits, eight of which came in the ‘80s. While songs from the "Xanadu" soundtrack still remain popular and Hold On Tight was used in the '80s Coffee Achivers commercials and recent ads by Honda, forgotten …
Put a fork in 2013 and grab your favorite noisemaker as you prepare to ring in 2014. It's been a fun year for SIT80's and today we Wrap It Up for the past year with The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
I detest all the "Best Albums of 2013" lists. New music? Please. Makes me want to dry heave. As I was pontificating yesterday while getting my hair buzzed at a Supercuts here in the Orlando area that gratefully seems to only play '80s music, "new" music died a long time ago. We only are allowed to study the relics these days.
Where you tired of Terrance Trent D'Arby and Wishing Well in the '80s? If so, perhaps you missed If You Let Me Stay.
Ok, I know what you're asking. You're asking, "Dim, we gotta know, when you were hanging out at the legendary nightclub First Avenue, what song would you dance yourself to exhaustion to whenever it was played?"
Your Love by The Outfield has become a seminal song of the ‘80s that has been played countless times and became part of a much talked-about Saturday Night Live skit this season when host Josh Hutcherson reenacted the song to humerous results on his November 23rd appearance. While Your Love gets all the …
With all the Christmas candy and food that was devoured this holiday season, you too might feel like a whale, which is brings us to today's entry of Belly of the Whale by Burning Sensations.
Merry Christmas! On this special day, we unfortunately do not have a partridge in a pear tree, but we do have a Canary in a Coalmine.
