Show 356

Sailing by Christopher Cross. From his 1979 self-titled debut. Yacht rock leftover…the first of many tonight.

The Abba Show interview! Hannah Pocock and Jenna Ball from The Abba Show.

Thank you for the music by The Abba Show Cast.

Gimme Gimme Gimme by Abba. Request.

Rock Me by Abba. Request.

A Girl Like You by The Smithereens. Pat DiNizio, the lead singer and songwriter of the New Jersey rock group the Smithereens, died Tuesday at the age of 62. No cause of death has been announced.

Imaginary Lover by Atlanta Rhythm Section. 1978 track that even charted here (49) where yacht rock wasn’t the ‘thing’ the way it was in the US. Interesting that mainstream Americans probably know more Aussie yacht rock than pub rock…

Key Largo by Bertie Higgins. #75 on VH1’s Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 80s.. It’s from 1982 and references the Bogart-Bacall film of the same name.

Do the Right Thing by Redhead Kingpin & the FBI. Their 1989 debut. It written for but not used in the Spike Lee film of the same name, but two years later the song was featured on the soundtrack of Wes Craven’s horror film The People Under the Stairs.,[1] playing over the end credits.
