I'll make you a promise: I'll shop at Radio Shack for all my holiday gifts and batteries if Weird Al keeps doing their commercials for them.
Like a lot of other SIT80's Nation, I grew up hearing the accolades of Bob Dylan, but never really understanding the appeal of the man with the squeaky, conversational and distinctive voice. However, one Dylan song I can get behind is his highest charting single of the ‘80s: Sweetheart Like You.
In 1975, The Eagles were progressing from a country-rock band to a more electric guitar sound and picked up Don Felder to join the flock of eagles. While The Eagles rocked, it wasn't until he went solo in the ‘80s that Felder traded up from Witchy Woman to Bad Girls.
Ten hours of a woman walking in NYC? I can forgive that hoopla for ever going viral now that I've seen "10 Hours of Princess Leia Walking in NYC." Best editing job... ever.
If you have a good song, how do you make it better? If you are The Long Ryders you add a little backing vocal by The Bangles and ta-da - you have a Paisley Underground classic with I Want You Bad.
Remember the tale of the movie All American High Revisited? Sure you do, we toild you in Episode 322 of the podcast. The documentary follows the school year of the Class of 1984 in a Calfornia high school and then revisits the main characters 30 years …
Ah, the celebrity birthday list has a good roll call today. Some of the biggest names in Hollywood were born today in the ‘80s such as Ryan Gosling (‘81) and Anne Hathaway (‘83). Some Nov. 12 birthdays also include celebrities who actually had some of their greatest moments in the ‘80s such as Al "Do You Believe in …
A lot of '80s music fans would say the decade's music was at its best in 1984. And it's hard to argue with that. So many fantastic records with incredible staying power were released that year. Prince's Purple Rain. U2's Unforgettable Fire. Bruce's Born in the USA. In this week's episode of Stuck in the '80s, we discuss …
Let me get this straight, but this Tuesday we are playing Wednesday Week. Why? Because of Why. So why Wednesday on Tuesday again? Because - Why.
Bob Geldof and Midge Ure are reuniting for Band Aid's 30th anniversary with plans to record a new version of Do They Know It's Christmas, this time with proceeds to fight the Ebola Crisis. Geldof announced his plans Monday in a press conference, RELATED ►POST PROFILESHARE ►
In the 1930s, the novel and Frank Capra classic movie Lost Horizon introduced us to the hidden world of "Shangri-La" - a place of utopian paradise. For many of us, a place of the past that was like utopia was the ‘80s and great lost songs and videos like the Steve Miller Band's Shangri-La.
Nine Inch Nails is not thought of as an ‘80s artist, but it was in the fall of 1989 when Pretty Hate Machine was released. With that in mind, let's remember the first single and video for Trent Reznor and NIN and the macabre story behind the video for Down In It.
Yesterday we featured Lou Gramm gone solo, but before he left Foreigner, let's honor the regular lineup of the band with their last chart song Hearts Turn To Stone.
Somewhere deep, deep down, '80s fans knew Boy George and Culture Club weren't finished yet. Despite all the crazy shenanigans and legal woes, the gang would reunite and give it one more push. And now they have. Culture Club this week has …
Long betfore he become one-third of Two And A Half Men. Even before he had all our sympathy votes as Duckie in Pretty in Pink. Jon Cryer's first movie role - can you believe it? - was actually 1984's No Small Affair, which turns 30 years old on Nov. 9.
Whether you lost your virginity to the singing of Lou Gramm or just like the non-sexual experience of listening to Foreigner, we won't tell anybody as it will be Just Between You and Me.
Remember all those crazy Atari E.T. game catridges that they found in a New Mexico landfill? Now you can actually own one. (Does it work? Who cares! It was an awful game, hence the landfill.)
In the cruel ironies of the music world, leave it to a band named the Payolas to not make it big stateside on the radio despite numerous gems like You're The Only Love.
I have placed clothing vital to the survival of my vacation into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this luggage safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
