Great songs heard on radio


#1558

Over and over (I get up again) / Madonna on 4TAB TWO (4IP). I haven’t heard that song on the radio since…ever! An album track from her first album. I’m not sure it was ever released as a single.


#1559

Lay Your Hands On Me - Thompson Twins

Now playing on Hawkesbury Radio 89.9

Had nearly forgotten about that song!


#1560

Shattered Dreams (12’’)- JOHNNY HATES JAZZ

Played on 2XL over the Christmas break. I wish more stations would chuck in the odd extended mix.


#1561

Heard Metal Guru from T-Rex on Triple M yesterday and they just played Ballroom Blitz by Sweet. Loving this old stuff!


#1562

Bridge To Your Heart - Wax

Now Playing on WSFM’s “80’s Lunch”.

Though it’s the only such ‘great’ song they’ve played today… everything else has been usual ‘safe’ stuff.


#1563

Did they play “Right Between The Eyes” by Wax in the 80s? This is a terrific pop song tailor made for radio.


#1564

Come back by London beat. 2gn. Dont hear on radio too much these days. Followed up by Your Wildest Dreams by The Moody Blues. :+1:


#1565

Great double shot. Gee Londonbeat were absolutely everywhere for about 12 months or so and then all but disappeared. The couple of hits they had received massive airplay at the time though.


#1566

A Forever Classic special, that one. You don’t hear it much elsewhere, though.


#1567

Used to hear it on Triple M’s Cold 30 and that’s about it.


#1568

I haven’t heard any station play this one since 1986.Looked this one up on You Tube and think that this a great song that radio has forgotten about :confused:


#1569

HUNDREDS OF LANGUAGES - GANGgajang

(Spirit WA)

A great forgotten tune which hasn’t been played on commercial radio for years.


#1570

Great video clip for TV news nerds too!


#1571

Margaret Urlich - Number One (Remember When We Danced All Night) - Coles Radio… Not that unusual but I have not heard for a while I assume it is played on Smooth quite a lot.


#1572

I don’t think Smooth ever played that song. In fact, they don’t even play her biggest hit, “Escaping”, at least not for a very long time.


#1573

I’ll have to look for this song on You Yube also


#1574

Conversations Cold Chisel on hhh fm. Not sure if Triple M or wsfm ever play that song.


#1575

Margaret Urlich used to be played quite a lot on commercial radio at the height of her career from 1990-95. Don’t know why even Smooth FM or Brisbane’s 97.3 or similar formatted stations don’t play her hits now!


#1576

97.3 wouldn’t have the nous to play something like that even though they absolutely should! They are clueless.

I’ve heard Breeze play her though.

You’re right she was one of those artists who had massive airplay for a short period and then inexplicably disappeared almost entirely. Seems to happen a lot with Australian artists too like Wendy Mathews .


#1577

One I haven’t heard for quite a while

Unchain My Heart - Joe Cocker

Now Playing on WSFM.
