I watched the video today and it's such a classic, you have to play Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al.

How about a request for The Valley Road by Bruce Hornsby?

I'd like to request Sally MacLennane by the Pogues. It's not a song or band I knew of in the 80's, but I became very fond of them in the 90's.
Quote:All right, gentlemen! Here are your requests!
You Can Call Me Al
Great one PPP! This is one of the great songs of the 80's that seemed to come out of nowhere to be a monster hit. I like the video, too.
I used to love Paul Simon's appearances on SNL, especially him singing Still Crazy in a chicken suit.
The Valley Road
Good song. Bruce Hornsby usually flies under my radar but I usually like his songs when I hear them.
This is a rollicking fun song. Who would've thought to mix traditional Irish music with punk rock? It works so well and Shane McGowan is a tragic genius.
Quote:Thanks for the requests, fellas! And I want you ALL to remember, I will play ONE request from each of you a week, but you can request songs in as MANY weeks in a row as you wish, and I'll play all the requests I get! Now, it's MY turn...
Quote:Men At Work
Men At Work were quite a sensation in the early 80's. There seemed to be some turning on them after their initial success, and I can't stand some of their songs, but I still like this one.
I admit, when Footloose comes on, I sometimes get drawn into it. I like when Kevin Bacon is trying to tell Chris Penn about the new bands. This is a fun song.
Great choice! I remember the video well, too.
St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)
I don't think I've ever seen the movie this song is from, which is odd for a teen of the 80's. I've heard the song many times though.
Holding Out For A Hero
Also from Footloose. This one has never been a favorite of mine, though.
Quote:Hall & Oates
Good choice. Hall & Oats had some good tunes in the 80's.
Quote:Well, that's all for THIS week! Remember, if you would like to hear/see a favorite song from the '80's played here, make a request! I can't fulfill your request until I get it!
This week I'd like to request Desire by U2.
