My second (and last) radio show this semester is Sunday night. I'll be playing my favorite 80s songs from 7 to 9 p.m. Yeah, I'm old enough to have heard some of these on the radio in high school and college (sigh).
The songs I have picked out so far include:
- Animotion: Obsession
- Bananarama: Cruel Summer and Venus
- Blondie: Rapture
- Bronski Beat: Smalltown Boy
- Colourbox: Pump Up the Volume
- Dead or Alive: You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)
- Depeche Mode: People are People
- Dexy's Midnight Runners: Come on Eileen
- Duran Duran: Hungry Like the Wolf and Reflex
- Gloria Estefan: Rhythm is Gonna Get You
- Eurythmics: Here Comes the Rain Again
- Falco: Rock Me Amadeus [aka Eat Me Hot Potatoes to one of my friends from high school]
- Heart: Never
- Howard Jones: Things Can Only Get Better
- Human League: Don't You Want Me
- Information Society: What's on Your Mind (Pure Energy) [You Go Spock!]
- Madness: Our House
- Murray Head: One Night in Bangkok
- New Order: True Faith and Blue Monday
- Pet Shop Boys: West End Girls
- Tears for Fears: Shout
- T'Pau: Heart and Soul
- 'Til Tuesday: Voices Carry
- Soft Cell: Tainted Love
- Kim Wilde: You Keep Me Hangin' On
I've played some of these last semester (and summer), so you'll just have to listen to them again. I considered including Relax (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) and Peek-a-Boo (Siouxsie and the Banshees), but thought it was best to avoid angry calls to the FCC.
