It’s an 80s Thing #44 – Come & Go

It’s an 80s Thing #44 – Come & Go

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, in part one, we’ll focus on songs, groups or albums with “Come” in the title and in part two we’ll focus on “Go” songs. We’re going to hear back-to-back Paul Young songs. We’re going to hear that song that kicked “Billie Jean” from the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and we’re also going to hear that song that inspired Michael Jackson to write “Billie Jean”. You’ll hear all of that and more on today’s IA8T.
