It’s An 80s Thing #15 – Parlez-vous français?

It’s An 80s Thing #15 – Parlez-vous français?

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’s topic touches on artists dabbling in French lyrics as a vehicle to . . . I don’t know, sex it up, maybe. Today we’re going to hear a commercial from a product that suggested it calmed us down and gave us energy, we’re going to hear the song that was mistakenly considered to be about nuclear war and/or safe sex and we’ll hear the song that was kept out of the top spot by Greggory Abbott and Billy Vera & The Beaters. Today’s trivia question is way too easy . . . one of the artists we play today will be as a member of her band and from a solo project, can you guess who that is?

1. Peter Gabriel – Games Without Frontiers
Hold On Tight coffee commercial
2. ELO – Hold On Tight
3. Adam & The Ants – Ant Rap (Scratch Track)
4. Billy Idol – Eyes Without A Face
5. Blondie – Sunday Girl
6. Desireless – Voyage, Voyage
7. Visage – Fade To Grey
8. Debbie Harry – French Kissin In The USA
Highlander starring French actor Christopher Lambert
9. Men Without Hats – Safety Dance
10. Robbie Nevil – C’est La Vie
