It’s An 80s Thing #63 – Summer & Winter

It’s An 80s Thing #63 – Summer & Winter

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 has the distinction of being the first commercially released cassette single (AKA the cassingle) in the US. You’re going to hear the song that stalled at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 behind Tiffany’s “Could’ve Been” and we’re going to hear the song who’s accompanying video won the 1985 MTV Video of the Year! You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
