Forgotten 80s - Aztec Camera, Two Minds Crack, Red Flag,
It's Memorial Day weekend here in the States, but that hasn't stopped Brian and Sarah from putting together another episode. This one is based on a listener idea; Charles Christiphe wrote in and suggested an episode about forgotten songs of the 80s. Brian and Sarah liked the idea a lot and decided to choose two songs each to discuss. Thanks, Charles!!
Sarah's first selection may not be forgotten in the UK, as it reached the top 20 back in 1983. However, it failed to appear on any American charts, so she stands by her choice - especially since Brian had never heard the song until last year. The other three songs are arguably more obscure, but both hosts manage to find a good deal of information about the artists and the songs to share in this episode. Each song has a video to talk about as well-- although Brian was disappointed to realize he had a false memory of one of them. Also in this episode: Brian actually passes up another chance to launch into another mini James Bond podcast! His excuse: with their air conditioning currently broken, the poor boy was "Crazy from the Heat!" And how did Sarah manage to tie this David Lee Roth/Van Halen reference to one of the bands she selected for this episode?
Aztec Camera - Oblivious
Two Minds Crack - Cry Cry Cry
Red Flag - Russian Radio
Animotion - I Engineer
Bonus Feature: Sarah's Secret Song Snippet
The first installment of this new feature produced a winner quite quickly (congrats, Tommy R!) and Sarah acknowledges the selection may have been a bit too easy. She's hoping this week's secret song snippet will be a bit tougher, but still a lot of fun! Be sure to check Facebook and Twitter for the announcement of the winner!
