This week on Talking 80s Music, we touched on one of the bigger teen heart-throbs of the 1980s... Corey Hart. Some great music came from the Canadian singer/songwriter but for some reason it never manifested overseas (i.e. England.) We put together a retrospective mix, played an unplugged version of "Never Surrender" as well as "Eurasian Eyes" and "I Am By Your Side." Well worth taking our Corey Challenge we mention during the show -- play any of his hits other than "Never Surrender" and "Sunglasses At Night" to one of your friends and see if they can guess the artist.
We had a great time working on this episode. Has to be the content. Maybe it's also knowing that we provided some of our listeners with the missing puzzle pieces that make up the bigger picture of this artist. Did notice a few problems with the live version that were corrected later. If this continues, we may have to tweak a few things again.
