Soft Cell reunite for one last show!
February 21st, 2018 under 80s. [ Comments: none ]

You can’t help but to think of Soft Cell’s Tainted Love, when you think of the ’80s. But where are they now? You normally never think of the band behind the song when you sing their chart topping tune. Well, we are thinking about them now because Marc Almond announced on BBC Radio 2 today that they will play one farewell concert on September 30th at O2 to say goodbye and celebrate their 40th anniversary.

Almond confirms this is it, but the radio host is not as sure as the singer. Once you get a taste for it, it is hard to not eat the whole thing up. Especially since Almond said that they might release some new music too for their 40th.

Will you run to or run away from their final performance? And do you also have Tainted Love stuck in your head, like it is stuck in mine now?


It truly is an upside down world in Perfect Stranger Things
November 7th, 2017 under 80s, Jimmy Kimmel, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s everyone loved Perfect Strangers’ Cousin Larry and Balki. Now in 2017, everyone is in love with the ’80s all over again thanks to Stranger Things. Therefore, Jimmy Kimmel Live decided to mash up the two for Perfect Stranger Things!

Mark Linn-Baker and Bronson Pinchot reprised their roles and added a new roommate for Netflix’s newest sitcom. Because everything old is new again these days. Therefore, keeping the old and adding Demogorgon makes it all new. As long as the Demogorgon doesn’t take off his mask because he is much uglier without it. Yikes.

Now that we have gotten to know Perfect Stranger Things, I cannot wait Full House of Cards with Bob Saget as the lead.


Watch the Charles in Charge cast sing their theme song!
October 30th, 2017 under 80s, Nicole Eggert, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, everyone was singing the Charles in Charge theme song. Heck even now you can do it, just from your memory because it was so gosh darn catchy. Well what about the cast of the beloved sitcom, can they do it?

This weekend Buddy Lembeck (Willie Aames), Gwendolyn Pierce (Jennifer Runyon) and, Jamie (Nicole Eggert) and Adam Powell (Alexander Polinsky) all got together for a mini-reunion at the Chiller Theater convention in NJ. On the way there, they all sang their theme song and the actors knew each and every word from memory just like you and me. Even though they had not seen each other in years (and for one not having worked with two of them), they still were all in sync as they sang the tune that is stuck in your head now. And hearing them do it makes you feel as happy as you do whenever you hear that song on television.

I have said this before and I will say it again, why doesn’t someone reboot this show. Maybe Adam is hired to babysit Gwendolyn and Buddy’s kids. Since the latter two got married and had kids! I would watch it, wouldn’t you?

To see how happy the cast looks after they have been fed snacks and are standing up, then click here!


Did Donna Mills hint there’s a Knots Landing reunion in the works?
October 19th, 2017 under 80s, Donna Mills, Reunions. [ Comments: 1 ]

Donna Mills shared a photo with her Knots Landing co-stars, Michelle Lee and Joan Van Ark and said, “Your favorite trio is back together! Exciting things #comingsoon 🎥⚡️.” Does that mean that there are working on a Knots Landing reunion? Or could it be something else? Things that make you go hmmmmmm.

Things that make you go “wow” is that fact that those three ladies are all in the mid-’70’s (76, 75 and 74) and they look just as they did in ’80s when they were doing that primetime Soap Opera we all loved. Scratch that, they all look even better now than they did then. Don’t you agree?


Bonnie Tyler singing Total Eclipse of the Heart during the Eclipse
August 21st, 2017 under 80s. [ Comments: none ]

If you are going to book any music act for you total Eclipse party, Bonnie Tyler is the one that you want. Royal Caribbean was the one that got her to climb aboard their ship and sing her 1983 chart topping hit Total Eclipse of the Heart written by Jim Steinman as the moon covered the sun.

How did it go? Watch it above and hear how at 66, she still sounds like she sang it when she was just 31 years old. What a voice and what a song. Just as powerful now as it was then, thanks to her vocals and Steinman’s words.

Too bad the eclipse did not really happen when she was singing the tune. Which I thought was the whole purpose of her belting it out on Royal Caribbean’s Total Eclipse Cruise. Oh well.

Now when it comes to DNCE, when did Joe Jonas because a ’70s porn star? And where can I watch that porno?
