Valley Road is probably my favourite actually
‘The 80s’ Digital are playing some gems tonight!
Say You Will - Foreigner
King Of Pain - Police
It’s A Mistake - Men At Work (I think this one is a favourite here)
Honourable mention to Break Up Song by the Greg Kihn Band which I still really like despite being frequently played!
Great songs all of them. The 80s seems to me to be getting a bit broader in their music which I’m really enjoying.
BTW I’m the same with the Breakup Song. Never get sick of it. Ever seen a movie called Beautiful Girls with Uma Thurman? That song always reminds me of the scene where the jilted guy is plowing snow IN to the ex girlfriend’s driveway - that song is playing.
Too Young For Promises - Koo De Tah
Played on The 80s Digital. I know that I have mentioned this one before but it’s a great song and I know that a few people like it here. Starting to hear it quite frequently on The 80s as well.
Yeah, their playlist has been more adventurous. I started listening to The 80s after the removal of Aussie Digital. It is certainly better than a year ago.
I actually haven’t seen that movie before, might have to take a look. I don’t know why I the song so much, may be because ‘they don’t write them like that anymore’ is accurate compared to music today!
Big Time - Peter Gabriel
Now Playing on 2HHH Hornsby.
As to why commercial radio rarely plays this classic, I cannot understand. I love that song.
That’s a great song.
I’m going to listen to the stream of that station now that you’ve mentioned it. Seems that it’s an ‘All Things 80s’ show.
EDIT: Now playing Passengers by Elton John!
This is part of their “All Things 80s” program the station airs at 7-10pm & 11pm-Midnight on Saturdays.
Another great underplayed Elton song!
I had a self-imposed posting exodus for a couple of days while I had important schoolwork, but I was still listening to radio. Here’s what i’ve heard:
Concrete And Clay - Martin Plaza (on Gold 104.3 at around 6:15 on Wednesday night during ‘Totally 80s’
High - Lighthouse Family (on Gold also at around 9:30 Wednesday night)
Flagpole Sitta - Harvey Danger (on MMM Melbourne at around 4:00 this afternoon, only heard the first half unfortunately because I had something to do )
The Ms should play that more often.
An underappreciated song from an underappreciated band. Does get some good airplay though despite Harvey Danger’s relative obscurity
I Hear Motion - The Models
Now Playing on WSFM.
Great under played Aussie song deserving of more airplay.
Also heard earlier today during Coast FM Gosford’s “Soundtrack Of The 80s”
The War Song - Culture Club
A good under played song of theirs.
You Little Thief - Feargal Sharkey
Now Playing on the Triple M regional “Saturday Night Party”.
They should that play more instead of “A Good Heart” for the bazillionth time.
Let’s Go All The Way - Sly Fox
Now Playing on 2HHH Hornsby.
I don’t think I’ve heard that on the radio since 1986!
Frente! - Bizarre Love Triangle on The 90s iHeartRadio. Lovely cover of a New Order classic
Thanks for the post… This allows me to post here again as I got message saying “No more posts allowed as you have posted 3 consecutive posts” or something like that.
A couple from my work trip to Canberra and back
Truganini - Midnight Oil
On SWR FM
Voices Carry - Til Tuesday
On 2ST (but for some reason, the song was stopped halfway through
Catch Me I’m Falling - Real Life
Heard a short while ago on Port Stephens FM.
Haven’t heard that for quite a while!
I love this song, and was most excited to see it performed live a couple of years ago. But it was disappointing, the singer was dropping words and lines throughout the song.
Heard on Gold 104.3 Saturday Party Playlist tonight:
Bop Girl - Pat Wilson
Just What I Needed - Cars
Nothing Too Serious - Icehouse
What Have I Done To Deserve This - Pet Shop Boys
Unfortunately Cruisin by Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis was also played. God I hate that song.
