Power Hour 1984: (The Police, Wham!, Prince, FGTH, Scandal, Van
The month of June is here, and the official start to summer (in the Northern Hemisphere) is just days away. For something different to kick off the summer, Sarah came up with the idea of doing an episode on the music of 1984 for episode 84. Brian added a twist to the idea by framing the discussion around a "power hour," where participants drink a shot of an alcoholic beverage (something mild, like beer or cider) every minute for sixty minutes. And to make things even more interesting and fun, occasional guest host Colby Zell was invited to participate as well.
Each of the three hosts report the beverage they'll be drinking during the "power hour," and then as the clock starts, they read a very recent article that talks about how 1984 was voted as the best year in pop music since the inception of the pop music charts. Then Colby, Sarah, and Brian take turns drawing random songs out of a hat (yes, an actual hat). All the songs were listed in Rolling Stone magazine's article "100 Best Singles of 1984: Pop’s Greatest Year." Some lively, circuitous, and humorous discussions ensue as the songs are chosen and the beverages are consumed.
The Police - Wrapped Around Your Finger
