1987 Albums: Prince, Paul, Poison, Pandemonium

5/10/2024
Dave and Milt dissect the Billboard Top 10 albums, including 'iconic' works such as 'The Final Countdown' by Europe, 'Graceland' by Paul Simon, 'Tango in the Night' by Fleetwood Mac, 'Sign o' the Times' by Prince, 'Licensed to Ill' by the Beastie Boys, 'Slippery When Wet' by Bon Jovi, and 'The Joshua Tree' by U2. The discussion not only delves into the background and the stories behind these albums but also addresses broader themes like cultural appropriation, the effect of MTV, and the transition in sound for bands like Bon Jovi. Can you tell this summary was written by AI? So what. I'm trying to get this 2 hour+ podcast posted. Gimme a break. Anyway, by combining personal anecdotes, insights into the controversies of the time such as the apartheid-era South Africa visit by Paul Simon for 'Graceland', and listener interactions, the episode presents a nostalgic and insightful review of 1987 as a pivotal year in music history. Here are the topics covered. This is a goofy podcast, so the list summarized by AI in a formal list looks like borderline gibberish. We hope you enjoy it. 00:00 Welcome to Past Tens: A Journey Through Billboard's Top Hits 00:52 The Art of Killing Time: A Casual Chat 02:35 Listener Interactions: Feedback and Fun Facts 07:57 Diving into 1987: A Special Episode with a Twist 17:00 The Final Countdown: Analyzing Whitesnake's Iconic Album 36:50 Tawny Kitaen: More Than Just a Music Video Vixen 41:44 Rock Legends and Hair Metal Nostalgia 42:18 The Simpsons' Take on Hair Metal Bands 42:45 Whitesnake and the Era of Classic Rock 44:26 Bryan Adams' Musical Journey 49:36 Prince's Iconic Album: Sign of the Times 01:05:32 The Fusion of African and Pop Music by Paul Simon 01:16:37 Poison's Glam Metal Impact 01:23:23 Beastie Boys Break Records with License to Ill 01:25:38 Controversial Lyrics and Album Titles 01:27:12 Musical Innovation and Sampling Mastery 01:28:31 Unreleased Tracks and Online Discoveries 01:35:25 Transition to Bon Jovi's Breakthrough 01:42:33 The Return of Richie Sambora to Bon Jovi 01:45:11 Album Chart Countdown and Reflections 02:02:37 Rating the Week: A Musical Time Capsule 02:02:47 Milt's dog farts
