Deep Cuts and Superficial Wounds

I like 80s music, and I especially like finding 80s music that is new to me. This is a mixtape podcast sharing the songs I find and offering an alternative playlist to what you’d hear on the Time Life Awesome 80s compilation.

I like 80s music, and I spend time hunting down 80s gems that I didn’t hear back in the day, either because I grew up in the U.S. and missed out on all the cool euro stuff or because most 80s nights tend to feature the same few dozen hits again and again. I decided to try out putting some of my favorites in an “annotated mixtape,” to borrow the phrasing of the podcast Different Head, which I like a great deal and which inspired me to make this show. Enjoy the synthy goodness. If you’re wanting to listen to the next episode, click here. Track listing (and where to buy these tracks):  Clio, “Eyes” — Apple Music • Spotify • Amazon Music Roni Griffith, “Desire” — Apple Music • Spotify • Amazon Music Fancy, “Slice Me Nice” — Apple Music • Spotify • Amazon Music Black Book, “Mystery Woman (You Must Change)” Isadora Juice, “Isadora” J.D.
