Vice City turned me on to this one




The first time I heard it was great, but the stations where I live have killed it.







Sister Christian and Night Ranger-love this song, it never gets old.




Don't know this one. Head Over Heels by Tears For Fears is one of my all time favorite 80s songs.




A Classic. Lead singer is the underrated other Patti Smith except I think it's spelled Smyth?

Sorry, these are the only two songs I liked this week. I didn't realize the Curly Shuffle was from the 80's. Guess I never thought about when it was written.

I love the Three Stooges. We should watch them at the GSBAMB in your Cartoon fun it could be Cartoon and Stooges Fun!

Hi, Whispering Hands! Always glad to meet a fan! LOL Just jokin'! ;\)

What's Vice City? Some video game? If so, no wonder I'd never heard of it! LOL \:D

As for radio stations killing songs, THAT'S been happening ever since radio stations started playing music! It's kind'a funny, but I think I first noticed this back IN the '80's. I'd heard Top 40 stations (we had two here in St. Louis) play the SAME song TWICE during a disc jockey's shift, and I think most of those only lasted six hours a day, if THAT long! (Yes, I know DJ's work more than that, too. \:\) )

I think I saw Patty Smith's name as "Smith" AND "Smyth." I could be wrong, though. Actually, I just looked it up on wikipedia.com and it IS Smyth. \:\)

And I liked The Go-Go's song MUCH better than Tear For Fears'. \:\)

Vice City is part of the Grand Theft Auto video game series. The game came out in 2003 but it was set in the 1980s in a Scarface style setting and the music was a great collection of 80s tunes.

I thought I'd seen it spelled differently as well LOL.

I DEFINITELY have Queen lined up. I remember Bolton had a semi-rock hit circa '83 or '84, but I can't recall it. Do you have the title of his Top 40 hit back then?

An even BETTER idea would be to put up a Three Stooges short every week. Howzbout it, John? You up to start a thread like that every week? \:\)

His three biggest hits were all reinterpretations of old songs:

Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay

Georgia on My Mind

When a Man Loves a Woman (1991 but maybe John will give you dispensation since I doubt this is a song he would play, but I'm sure it's one you would)

A brief autobiographical tidbit:
Michael Bolton and Queen were favorites of my ex-wife. It is only now, 18 years later, that I find my interest in these bands rekindling.

I never heard Bolton's renditions of those songs, but I WISH I could remember the name of the hit he had in '83 or '84. It wasn't HARD rock, but closer to medium rock as opposed to Adult Contemporary or pop.

I heard ONE song from him back then, but I recall liking it. \:\)

Great choices. I always got a kick out of the Autograph video with the lead singer turning up the volume on the tiny transistor radio.

I remember my math teacher quoting lines from the Twister Sister video. He got quite a laugh.

How can you not love The Curly Shuffle. I always loved the "Look at the grouse!" line, as it's not as famous as the others.

As I stated before, I like the Go-Go's. This was a good one.

I never cared for Sister Christian or The Warrior, though.
