80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 10-13-09


Ed-FM truly outdid himself last night. Personal favorites included Modern English’s “Life In The Gladhouse” and a fantastic extended version of Oingo Boingo’s “Dead Man’s Party.” A band that was new to me and sounded deliciously obscure was Section 25. And, Eye Eye – I have heard of them and know “Out On A Limb,” but did not recognize the tune “One-Sided Love.” You think you know obscure? Well, think again!

 Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “so many obscure tunes, so little time” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights. Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca. Indulge yourself in some “80’s Music that doesn’t suck.” I guarantee die-hard 80’s New Wave/post-punk fans will not be disappointed.

  1. Hi there,

    New music that sounds old that I kind of like. Have you heard the new Onerepublic song All the right moves? I rather like it. Give it a listen. I think the first time I wasn’t really sure but now that I have heard it a few times, it is growing on me..lol It’s sounds a bit 80ish.




  2. Heya ((((Moezy))))

    I am definitely intrigued by modern music that sounds like it stepped out of the 80’s – that’s why I love Slave To The SQUAREwave. I’ll have to check out the song you’ve mentioned. Thank you for the lead!

    All the best,


  3. Here’s one for you. Have you listened to Fra Lippo Lippi? I like them. Old ..not new. Song: Every time I see you. There is quite a bit on youtube.




  4. Yes, I am familiar with them – definitely one that is going to take time to grow on me. 🙂 Thank you!
