Playmixt= playlist+mix tape


Oh my, my. It seems my nephew is besotted with the music and movies of the 1980s.

Next week is his 11th birthday and my sister has been slowly indoctrinating him into the pop culture. Am working up a John Hughes-heavy playlist for some CDs I’m making him. It’s a surprise, so don’t tell him! Things are looking like it might have to be a double CD… too hard to choose!

Today’s tune is going on the playlist: Eighties, by Killing Joke, was used as the theme song for the short-lived That ’80s Show, which starred Glenn Howerton as a record store guy - you may recognize him as Dennis from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Watch the pilot for That ’80s Show here.
