Richard regales us with stories from the likes of Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Berlin and many other 80’s legends about the songs that meant the most to him personally, and the tracks he was quite literally responsible for breaking in America. Through hosting his many Video shows and his radio gigs, Richard became a rock star himself
This is Volume 2 in the mix series of songs that sound like they would be included in a modern day John Hughes Soundtrack. I used a few different approaches in picking songs. Some of these songs might perfectly fit in one of his 80s masterpieces while others are guess how the sounds that he covets might have evolved over the years.
This mix features brand new music from legendary 80s new wave artists. All of these songs have been released after 2010. Many of these songs are as good, if not better, then the artists original work from the 80’s. It’s great to see that these bands that we grew up with are still making relevant music today.
