We have a Sonos Play 1 wireless speaker and I love this thing to no end. I use the app on my phone to go to Radio where an obscene amount of music and talk radio stations await to be chosen. I have been having a lot of fun and flashbacks with the Got Radio Retro 80's station. Which also has a website here if you want to check it out. They have played so many great songs that I had forgotten about that I would crank it up so loud I believe my neighbors must think I am insane. Eh, who cares? LOL
The 80's had a lot of talented and creative bands. Also, genres were a lot more defined where it is not so much now. Crossover music, see Run DMC and Aerosmith, was not as common and almost shocking in some cases. There was also a HUGE amount of one hit wonders. The Outfield, The Vapors, Soft Cell, Tom Tom Club and so many more. The station I mentioned plays all of these. Heaven!!
The other day I had the station on and a song started and I nearly tripped over my own feet to race over and turn up the volume. A band that had one hit and one album and was gone. Wherever these guys are now, I have no idea, but dudes, thank you for making a song that should have been used in so many movies from back in the day and capturing the 80's better than most. Friends, I give you the Erie, PA band Stabilizers and their one and only smash, "One Simple Thing". Welcome back 1986.
** Piece of cool trivia, David Fincher, THE DAVID FINCHER, was the director of this video. Rock on!
