LISTEN: It’s An 80s Thing # 19 – Down & Out

LISTEN: It’s An 80s Thing # 19 – Down & Out

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!

We’re going to hear from an artist’s whose material was destroyed in the 2008 Universal Fire, we’re going to hear the song that didn’t actually chart for the band until it was included in their second “Best of” album 5 years after the bands break up and we’re going to hear from a duo who uses the ampersand to bind their moniker. Today’s trivia question, can you guess which band uses the ampersand and has a song with “down” in the title and another with “out”?

2. Men At Work – Down Under

3. The Bangles – Going Down To Liverpool

4. The Police – When The World Is Running Down, You Make the Best of What’s Still Around

5. Prefab Sprout – When Love Breaks Down

6. James – Sit Down

7. Hall & Oates – Downtown Life

Connection: Hall & Oates

8. Hall & Oates – Out Of Touch

9. Billy Ocean – Get Outta My Dream, Get Into My Car

10. Joe Jackson – Steppin’ Out
