It’s An 80s Thing #35 – 80s Dance (Stock, Aitken and Waterman style) & Trios

It’s An 80s Thing #35 – 80s Dance (Stock, Aitken and Waterman style) & Trios

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 the comeback smash for a disco goddess. We’re going to hear yet another song tagged “lyrically questionable” on the 2001 Clear Channel memorandum following the 9-11 attacks and we’re going to hear a band that found success after they trimmed their 7-member band down to 3! You’ll hear all of that and more . . . Today’s trivia question: I mentioned the trio that found success after they trimmed down from 7 members to 3, can you guess what band that is?

Kylie Minogue – I Should Be So Lucky
Samantha Fox – I Only Wanna Be With You
Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up
Laura Branigan – Shattered Glass
