It’s An 80s Thing #122 – Contemporary Music Inspired By Nursery Rhymes, Fairy Tales And Lullabies

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 two very different songs inspired by the same children’s folktale back-to-back. We’re going to hear from a group whose name is inspired by a nursery rhyme and we’re going to ponder how head trauma could be spun into a plucky little ditty. You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
