It’s a 80s Thing #2 – Droppin’ a Deuce (Songs That Stalled Out At #2)

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 song that was shopped around to Bryan Adams, Corey Hart and REO Speedwagon but they all rejected it for various reasons, We’ll hear the song by a group who shed a few Taylors before the release of the album that contained the song we play today and we’ll hear the song by an artist who hid his identity from his father in order to be signed to his dad’s label . . .
