Remember That Song: 12/8/16

Can you name the artist and song:

To be sure what I feel
Is it all in my mind
Cause it seems so hard to believe


Last Song: “Just Once” by Quincy Jones (featuring James Ingram on vocals) from the album The Dude (1981)

Great job James, Jim (@JimVilk), and David (@dhsteeler)!!!

Seems nothin’ ever changes
We’re back to being strangers
Wondering if we ought to stay
Or head on out the door

And here is the closing scene of The Last American Virgin, which features this song.

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!

Since you’ve gone I’ve been lost without a trace
I dream at night, I can only see your face
I look around but it’s you I can’t replace
I feel so cold, and I long for your embrace

Episode 5: Slippery When Wet

episode-5-logo
We are back with a new episode of the Return to the ’80s podcast! After having technical difficulties, and losing a great episode about Ghostbusters (which we will have to revisit), we came back strong with some Slippery When Wet! Bon Jovi has recently released a new album, This House is Not For Sale, which was a #1 selling album. With this year being the 30th anniversary of the iconic ‘Slippery’ album, we decided to Return to 1986, and revisit it. And we are taking a guest with us on this trip – Scott from 80s Mixtape Autoreverse and 80’s Reboot Overdrive. So come check us out, and listen to our take on this classic album.


Opening

Rich man, poor man, living in fantasy
