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 song the writer said had musical limitations in his autobiography. Quote “it is a song that has nothing to do with music. It was all about generating money… The song didn’t matter”. We’re going to hear the song that was the most played Christmas song in the UK during the 21st century until it was dethroned by another song you’ll hear as well! Today’s trivia question . . . We have one song that was actually not released in the 80s, but instead came out in Nov of ‘79. Can you guess which song that is?
1. Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas
2. Run DMC – Christmas In Hollis
3. The Pretenders – 2000 Miles
4. The Waitresses – Christmas Wrapping
5. U2 – Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)
6. Billy Squier – Christmastime Is The Time To Say I Love You
7. Alison Moyet – Coventry Carol
8. Paul McCartney – Wonderful Christmastime
9. Daryl Hall & John Oates – Jingle Bell Rock
10. The Pretenders – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
