Friday random ten: Fluxblog 1981

Fluxblog 80’s set #2:

1. Stand And Deliver – Adam and the Ants
2. Rise Above – Black Flag
3. What A Day That Was – David Byrne
4. (We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thing – Heaven 17
5. Computer Love – Kraftwerk
6. Fire On The Bayou – The Neville Brothers
7. Harden My Heart – Quarterflash
8. Arc Of A Diver – Steve Winwood
9. Silent Scream – TSOL
10. Out Come The Freaks – Was (Not Was)

There are I believe 120 songs per yearly “album” in this collection. I’m just picking every 12th song (more or less) for these lists. I know I’ve heard “Harden My Heart” and “Arc Of A Diver” on regular FM rock radio back in the day – not in 1981, but later in the 80s and 90s, when good old album-oriented rock was still something you could find on the dial. More recently, “What A Day That Was” and “(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thing” have been played on the Sirius FirstWave 80s alternative station. I’m sure the others have been played somewhere, but not within my hearing. Which of these songs have you heard on the radio, if you’re old enough to be the kind of person that ever listened to the radio?

    Harden My Heart & Stand and Deliver were both staples of AOR radio as well as in heavy rotation on MTV.
