The awesome month of October has brought out the Goth in my soul. Okay, enough of the hyperbole. It is time for me to feature the first of several Goth bands I will profile this month that were never found in the 80s.
Tom Hanks knows how to play along when TV hosts hit him with blasts from his '80s past. This time it was Hanks (promoting his new flick Captain Phillips) playing "Chopsticks" on a piano board on Britain's The Jonathan Ross Show. And Sandra Bullock, on the show to promote her new movie Gravity, joined in.
Benedict Cumberbatch loves '80s movies? Of course he does. The only actor worthy of playing Sherlock Holmes and Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness by definitely must love the '80s. But in a recent "Ask Me Anything" interview on …
The Unforgiven were a band that dressed like cowboys in a Clint Eastwood movie, but were actually a melodic rock band from the Southern Cal area.
In honor of October, I will profile several artists that were either part of the Gothic Rock sound or have some Halloween or horror themed song. I plan on doing more than what should be my usual one a week pace (which I don't seem to be able to do anyway), so let's see if I can do it.
Cosplay isn't something we normally talk about on Stuck in the '80s, but when someone sends you an outfit photo of Lisa from Weird Science, it's worth a look. In this photos, "Lisa" is actually Gina B., a 22-year-old from Long Island, N.Y. Here's a short Q&A I had with Lisa on her costume. And look here on
Yesterday we featured Gary Wright and his ‘80s hit Really Wanna Know You. Who was the co-writer of that song? Today’s Lost and Found featured artist, Ali Thomson, who scored a hit with Take A Little Rhythm that made it all the way to No. 15 in 1980.
Remington Steele is set to return to TV soon, this time as a comedy? Wait, the original '80s series wasn't a comedy?? My mind is playing tricks on me. In any case, NBC has just acquired the sequel project from 20th Century Fox with plans on turning it into a half-hour comedy, RELATED ►POST PROFILESHARE ►
So you think the Dream Weaver is just a ‘70s artist? You would be wrong. Gary Wright’s time in the spotlight actually began at the dawn of the television era when as a child actor of the age of seven, he was featured on the first science fiction television show in 1950 called Captain Video and the Video Rangers.
Halloween really is the ultimate '80s holiday. On no other day -- except maybe for the rare '80s pub crawl or Cyndi Lauper concert -- can you dress up exactly like you did 30 years ago and be called a creative genius. If like me, you tossed all your '80s fashions long ago, 80stees.com is …
At the start of the ‘80s, things looked bleak for the New Orleans band Le Roux.
On a recent SIT80’s podcast, Brad in L.A. was reminiscing about his teenage days repeatedly listening to his cassette of the obscure band The Clocks. Since most have never heard of The Clocks, consider this your video introduction with the 1982 minor hit She Looks A Lot Like You.
Let’s just go ahead and say it. Dwight Twilley’s Girls is one of finest moments of ‘80s music videos. While popular on the charts and MTV in 1984, the song gets little airplay today.
The Money Pit isn't probably on the top of anyone's list of great comedies of the '80s. And I'm betting even Tom Hanks and Shelley Long would probably rather forget the 1986 flick, which starred the two actors as an engaged couple who find a fixer-up mansion at a too-good-to-be-true price and fall down down the rabbit home …
There is a long list of rock stars that died way too young and many of those deaths impacted so much we remember where we were when we heard the tragic news.
1983 was a very good year for Gary Myrick. The Texas native landed two songs on the Valley Girl soundtrack and released an EP that featured the video for The Message Is You that gained some airplay on MTV.
It’s been a little over two years since Steve informed us about the sad news of the death of Andrew Gold. Beloved by many for his ‘70s classics Lonely Boy and Thank You For Being A Friend. In his tribute to Gold, Steve talked about RELATED ►POST PROFILESHARE ►
After two rather fun and educational podcasts about the origin of the '80s sound, Stuck in the '80s is now faced with the unpleasant task of pinpointing the bands and songs that ended the '80s the way we knew and loved the decade. A...
Hey, you wanna see something really scary? Thirty years later, nothing still scares me like 1983's Twilight Zone: The Movie. Especially John Lithgow screaming, "There's a man on the wing of this plane!" Nightmare city. I don't even JOKE about that when flying now. That's worse karma that making jokes about bombs.
It is 2013 and there still isn’t a month that goes by without news about Depeche Mode. Whether it’s new material, a cancelled concert or general adoration, the boys from England have remained in the spotlight better than just about any band from the ‘80s.
