It’s an 80s Thing – Lost & Found – The Missing Mixed Tapes – Vol 9

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 a stellar cover of a song originally written and performed by Prince, back to back songs released in 1979 but peaked in 1980 by acts synonymous with the New Wave movement and we’re going to hear a song from the only band to have two completely different tracks included on the Ferris Bueller Soundtrack? Today’s trivia question . . . I mentioned that we have 2 songs released in 1979 but didn’t peak until 1980 . . . As mentioned I play them back to back, can you guess which two songs they are?

1. Nik Kershaw – Wouldn’t It Be Good
2. Howard Jones – New Song
3. The Psychedelic – Furs Love My Way
4. Missing Persons – Mental Hopscotch
5. Yaz – Don’t Go
6. Animotion – Obsession
7. Cyndi Lauper – When You Were Mine
8. The Pretenders – Back On The Chain Gang
9. Thomas Dolby – Europa And The Pirate Twins
10. Gary Numan – Cars
11. The Flying – Lizards Money
12. Crowded House – Something So Strong
13. Men At Work – It’s A Mistake
14. The Dream Academy – The Edge of Forever
