Good friends, Lizzie and Paul, are diggin’ The Dirt – the Mötley Crüe movie on Netlfix. Lizzie, of the Liz Laugh Cry podcast, is a Millennial who has a love of the ’80s. Check out this episode as Lizzie and Paul discuss The Dirt, and have a blast talking 80s music, and pop culture across both generations. Come join in on the fun!
Welcome back as the countdown continues. If you missed the first 10 songs, you can go back and check them out. In the early ’80s, radio was quite diverse. Disco was still winding down, and there were a lot of singer/songwriter, rock, and pop tunes. In the late ’80s, the Top 40 countdowns were still diverse. There was a good combination of pop, rock, and R&B. And today’s list is no exception. So, let’s go back to the good ole days, and Return to the week ending August 8, 1987, and go on with the countdown.
We welcome Scott Compton back to the show as we geek out over the classic rockumentary, This is Spinal Tap! In the spirit of rock and roll, this episode’s Play this, Not That features Mötley Crüe. There is also a new Remember That Song, and the ’80s Trivia is still up for grabs. Come give us a listen as we walk that fine line between stupid and clever.
Also, feel free to email us your thoughts about Spinal Tap, or anything 80s. We would love to hear from you! We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enough of my yakkin’. Whaddaya say? Let’s boogie!
– Welcome back, Scott Compton
– We had somebody scheduled to sit in the 4th chair, but he is no longer with us. The official explanation is that he choked on vomit. We just don’t know whose.

Shall We Play a Game?
Remember That Song
Last Song: “Sentimental Street” by Night Ranger
I know what you’re thinking / Cause I’ve been there myself / I’ve
been kicked so many times / I don’t know nothing else / Still I noticed your urgency / I recognized the flair / That you got from chasing all those East coast dares
Winner: James Herington
New Song: But I know the neighborhood / The talk is cheap, but the story is good / And tales grow taller on down the line
What brokerage firm’s name, when mentioned in TV ads, silenced entire rooms of people?

Since the new Star Wars movie is coming out this Friday, all this week I would like to Return to the decade that brought us the original Star Wars – the 1970’s! All the songs, and each Quote of the Day will be from the ’70s this week.
Can you name the artist and song:
And I guess it’s just the woman in you
That brings out the man in me
I know I can’t help myself
Last Song: “Dr. Feelgood” by Mötley Crüe from the album Dr. Feelgood (1989)
