It’s an 80s Thing #14 – Sophisti-Pop & Couples In A Band Together

It’s an 80s Thing #14 – Sophisti-Pop & Couples In A Band Together

After providing data for hundreds of Soundwaves 10@10 episodes, Intern Steve steps into the spotlight with a deep dive into All Things 80s. Almost every episode will be two parts … each half a distinctly different subject from its counterpart … seemingly unrelated pop culture and music topics that (more often than not) will have a connection!

Today we’re going to hear from the punk song that “got the spaghetti western treatment,” a band who had a couple couples involved, and a song that was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.” In 2018.

We’re also going to hear from the artist who won the Grammy for best new artist in 1986, beating out a-Ha. Can you guess who that was?
