  1. hey EJ! *waving* the only person I know on the list is Phil Collins but I do know about the ‘genre’ I like this mix…flows well.

  2. LOVE this mix!! Thomas Dolby? Duran Duran?! Loving it!! Of course after listening to Safety Dance I am ready to watch Pauly Shore in Biodome…Lady X, we think too much alike – it’s kinda spooky…

  3. This radio blog makes me wanna break out and wear some Chic jeans, an Izod shirt, leg warmers, LA Gears, bangle bracelets and crimp my hair.

  4. I never listened to this music…
    “Be Near Me?” Who the hell is ABC? And why the hell didn’t you use the “Billionaire” remix? If you nead it, I got it in my….
    …uh… I mean….
    …I don’t listen to this music…

  5. Talk about a triple bonus! Three great new wave mixes in one day!
    I love, love, LOVE “Twilight World!” It is one of the best recordings I’ve ever heard. Corinne Drewery is a goddess!
    Naked Eyes! Kano! ABC! They all take me back… Thank God my boss is out of town because I aint getting sh*t done today!
    Thanks again!

  6. Regarding “In the Air Tonight…”
    All I want to know my Love, is…
    Did you put on your pastel colored suit, white t-shirt, huaraches and no socks…ala Crockett and Tubbs?

  7. You know what’s weird? I think I love “Cars” more these days than I did in the 80s. I listen to it at least once a week.
    Oh yeah, I have CDs for you guys.

  8. ROFLMAO@ Todd Kelley.. you got me on that question, I didn’t put that song on there. I’ve never heard it in my life. ROFLMAO… so you got me… I guess EJ made some tweaks to my list. Maybe substitutes for the repeats??? *shrug*
    =))) *doing that stupid white girl dance that Courtney Cox did on the stage with Bruce Springsteen*

  9. Todd, I think that song was SUPPOSED to be The Look of Love… which I DID include… but maybe there was an error with the download, or EJ subbed that song instead cuz The Look of Love was used already in another mix??? LOL Not sure. =)))

  10. I actually did have to make some of those changes. Some of them wouldn’t convert and iTunes was even hating on me, they wouldn’t play. No worries, we’ve got most of it.

  11. thanks ej for checking on me and thanks for calling off the national guard 🙂
    i have to go through my cd’s and find duran duran i was just listening to phil collins the other day and i can’t believe my 8 yr old loves him, guess like mother like daughter.
    take care.

  12. I have to be honest.. when I first saw this playlist, I was like “WTF?!” But after listening to it for a bit, I realized (“I’ve got to run away!”) I know every song on this list.. (“..get away!”)
    You’ve surprised me again, bruh.. do ya damn thing..

  13. don this is a cool list. this takes me right back to saturday afternoons, in the 80s, watching “Top Of the Pops” on BBC. memories.
    No culture club? No Rick Ashley? No Five Star? c’mon dude 😉

  14. THANK YOU FOR PUTTING KANO ON THIS LIST!!! I have been looking for KANO online for months!!! God Bless You!!!
