Back on episode number 28 of the podcast BJ played some of his favorite songs from a wide variety of movie soundtracks. With this episode BJ revisits the concept, but this time focuses on great songs that were buried on random movie soundtracks in that glorious decade of the eighties, when new wave and AOR met, got married and had babies.
Another band, another episode. The Only Ones had something special, but they came along at a time when it was difficult to stand out and easy to implode. Yet as you'll hear on this episode the band made some great music in the short time that it existed.
Nils Lofgren got his first record deal before he was out of his teens and he made four records with that band, Grin, before launching a solo career in 1975 with one of the best records of that decade. Although he never matched the quality of his first solo record Lofgren has had a long and very respectable career as a songwriter and as a member of the E Street Band. Listen as BJ plays his favorites from the Lofgren discography.
Way back in March of 2014 BJ took a closer look at the wide variety of bands that have been damned to the purgatory of "hair" metal. On this episode we'll hear even more great songs by bands lost to history because the style and image they reveled in became unfashionable.
