K-Hits 80s Wonderland is rapidly approaching! This Friday night, I’ll be at Joe’s Live Rosemont with Eddie Money, Wang Chung, Naked Eyes and Tommy Tutone.
Will you be? CLICK HERE for tickets!
While some are already practicing “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets To Paradise” from Eddie, “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” and “Dance Hall Days” from Wang Chung, or “Always Something There To Remind Me” and “Promises, Promises” from Naked Eyes, I am a little different.
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with those songs if they’re your faves. It makes total sense! They were the most popular and successful hits.
I simply tend to lean towards the songs that got lost in the shadows.
For instance, when it comes to the Money Man, nothing makes me happier than to hear him sing “Endless Nights.”
That was on the “Can’t Hold Back” album in 1986 along with “Take Me Home Tonight,” but it didn’t crack the top 20. Therefore, it has slipped through the cracks.
Another one forever lost in the annals of time is “Let’s Go!” from Wang Chung. (And yes, you MUST include the exclamation point. It was on the 45!)
Frankly, this one’s still a mystery to me. The song hit #9 in 1987, which was way better than “Dance Hall Days” did three years earlier. Yet only one of the two still gets any airplay!
OK, got time for one more? Believe it or not, Naked Eyes DID have songs other than the big two. Here’s a good one:
Consider this blog a lyrical education. Now you’ll know the words to sing!
All I can do is cross my fingers and hope they’re both on the set list for K-Hits 80s Wonderland. If so, please leave me in my special place. After those songs are over, we can grab a drink at the bar. I promise!
