Part 2 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we dissect a cheesy '80s classic. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Kevin Bowe, Johnny Foreigner and Chris Stamey.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- A little background on David Geddes

- Early Geddes song sounds like "Rhinestone Cowboy," which came out later

- The same backing bands played on all the bubblegum pop records of the '70s

- Dube made a video "A Decent Saturday," depicting a day at a NH record store

- The Dirty Dancing soundtrack was a monster hit

- Benny Mardones had a hit with "Into the Night" in 1980

- Kumar: Mardones was going for an Eddie Money thing

- Male facelifts are unsettling

- The "Into the Night" video is creepy

- First line of the song: "She's just 16 years old..."

- Dube: All videos should have flying carpets in them

- Co-written by Robert Tepper

- Our friend Rob Hallworth became obsessed with Tepper

- Mardones liked writing ballads

- Tepper had his one hit on the Rocky 4 soundtrack

- On the cover of Foreigner's Head Games album

- They went from offensive to bland in only a few years

- Dube wants Mudhoney to cover "Double Vision"

- Doesn't matter who's singing for Foreigner or Journey

- Aerosmith was all over the Armageddon soundtrack thanks to Liv Tyler

- The Nic Cage effect

- To be continued

Music:
Kevin Bowe (feat. Paul Westerberg) - Everybody Lies

Johnny Foreigner - 3 Hearts

Chris Stamey - Astronomy
