In 1986, three young white rappers took MTV by storm, releasing the party anthem of the 80's!  This week we again welcome hip hop expert, DefDave as we discuss the Beastie Boys (in the process we missed two classes with no homework).  Were these guys an obnoxious flash in the pan or true artists with staying power?  We ponder this question while going track by track through Capital Records best selling album of all-time, "Licensed to Ill"!  Hold it now, HIT IT See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

One big tidbit kicks off the episode: a summary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and tributes to Carole King, Tina Turner, the Go-Go's, and LL Cool J. Then it's Time to go Back in Time, to November 30th, 1985 to be exact. Ads and articles in that edition of Billboard Magazine highlight artists like Arcadia, Kurtis Blow, Grace Jones, and Jack Wagner, who did NOT wear an eye patch in whatever soap opera he starred in. And finally, a review for an actor-slash-singer who had some LOFTY goals.

As we reach the end of the Stock Aitken Waterman-produced singles from 1986, we hear for one last time from Phil Fearon, about his remake of "Ain't Nothing But A House Party", and Youth and June Montana from Brilliant about their cover version of "The End Of The World". We also learn about the record company dramas both acts encountered shortly after their time with SAW came to an end. Dee Lewis joins us again to discuss the second Mondo Kane single, "An Everlasting Love In An Ever-Changing World", ghosting vocals as a backing singer and her solo career. And then we kick off SAW's 1987 hits with "Something In My House" by Dead Or Alive, which would end up being the band's last substantial success in the UK. Naturally, there were dramas and — explicit language warning! — also an extended mix with some obsenities thrown in for good measure.

The songwriting and production team's first excursion into the burgeoning house sound, "Showing Out" was another major turning point, propelling SAW towards their domination of the UK pop scene.

Pretty Poison was no flash in the pan. Although “Catch Me” is their biggest commercial success to date, they have a whole history as part of Philly's underground rock scene back in the early 80s.When singer Jade Starling joined the band at age 17, she shared songwriting duties with Whey Cooler and began exploring musical terrains that were more akin to Darkwave and New Wave than the Dance Pop of their later years. Influenced by early freestyle hits, they incorporated urban percussion to their sound, which was perfected by the time they started work on “Catch Me,” a No. 1 Dance hit, top 10 on pop, and top 15 on R&B.Though Starling and Cooler paused Pretty Poison momentarily to return to their rock roots, Dance soon came calling, with their catalog securing a place in popular culture through its inclusion in major movies and television series.More on Pretty PoisonWebsite: https://www.prettypoisonmusic.comJade Starling Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jadestarling/Jade Starling Twitter: https://twitter.com/JadeStarlingParty2Life website: https://www.party2life.orgShow TracklistingJust What I Needed (The Cars)Pretty Poison (Ram Jam)Excerpt from "Pretty Poison" TrailerGimme Gimme Your Autograph (Pretty Poison)No Tears (Pretty Poison)Nightime (Pretty Poison)Catch Me (I'm Falling) Original Version (Pretty Poison)Catch Me (I'm Falling) Album Version (Pretty Poison)Let Freedom Ring (Pretty Poison)Excerpt from "AJ & The Queen" (Netflix)Host and Producer: Diego MartinezExecutive Producer: Nicholas "NickFresh" PuzoAudio Engineer: Adam Fogel Follow us on social media: @choonspod

In our biggest episode yet, we look at the next four SAW-produced singles to be released in 1986, including "Tell Me Tomorrow", which was featured in the film Knights & Emeralds — and we hear from Princess about what it was like to be included on a soundtrack. There's also the third single by Brilliant, "Somebody", with Youth explaining how the SAW version of the track differed from the original version.

Do you remember the first music video you ever saw? Even if you don't, you may be like me and still remember being in awe of these mini "music movies." Today, I countdown what I believe are the 10 best videos of the 1980s. There will be a bunch of similarities as my "best songs of the 80s" podcast, but that's just because they are such decade-defining hits. We will also look at the rise of MTV, how the Beatles helped pave the way for music videos, and a bunch of behind-the-scenes facts on some of your favorites.

A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman

Another major turning point in the Stock Aitken Waterman story came when they began working with girl group Bananarama. SAW hadn't had a major hit since "Say I'm Your Number One" and Bananarama's last couple of singles had been commercial disappointments, but when they teamed up for a remake of "Venus", everyone was a winner. The trio's remake of the Shocking Blue hit returned them to the UK top 10 and took them to number 1 in Australia and the US. In this special episode dedicated to "Venus", we hear from Mike Stock and Phil Harding about the making of the record, while hosts Gavin and Matt talk about the song's iconic music video and look back at the impact working with SAW had on Bananarama's career.

Putting a list like this together was not easy—but somebody had to do it. Instead of a top 10; I went with 15, so more options could be included. This list obviously comes from my perspective as a kid growing up in the 80s, but I took other factors into account; including the impact the song had, billboard charts, and how each song represents the decade to this day.  Spotify Playlist: Best Songs of the 80s Support the Show: Patreon.com/80s

A lot of significant things happened in the year 1980. Today, we're looking back on the movies, TV shows, video games, sporting moments, and music that happened in the first year of this brand new decade. From Pac-Man to the Empire Strikes Back, the year 1980 had a bit of everything. There was a lot of carryover from the 1970s, but the new decade showed some early signs of what was to come.  Show Notes: A Look Back at the Year 1980 Support the Show: Patreon.com/80s

From funk to punk, pop to power ballads, Boy George to breakdancing, the year 1984 is largely regarded as the golden era of music. This week, I welcome Michaelangelo Matos, author of Can't Slow Down, to talk about what made 1984 such an important year in the industry. We discuss artists such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince Springsteen, Run DMC, Husker Du, and the most important 1984 song. We also discuss the lull in music leading up to its renaissance in 1984, and what happened in the late 80's that we wish we could forget. We also discuss both the business and cultural movements forward that 1984 gave us, from MTV to Boy George and breakdancing.
