It’s an 80s Thing #37 – Wannabes

It’s an 80s Thing #37 – Wannabes

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 reason why one artist refuses to play a big hit live. We’re going to hear a song that was named “Single Of The Year” in 1981 by 3 British music mags and we’re going to hear a song from 1969 (an IA8T first as you would expect since 99.9% of the songs we play are from the 80s). You’ll hear all of that and more, in this edition of IA8T. Our trivia question: Three of the songs we play have one artist in common, can you guess the songs and the artist?
