Bethlehem –> Boston: 80s on 8 playlist from Alan Hunter

July 17, 2014

“Peter Gabriel’s Sledge Hammer and Talking Heads’ Once in a Lifetime are a couple of my favorites, period, whether you’re on a road trip or not,” says 80s on 8 DJ and original MTV VJ Alan Hunter. “And you’ve always got to have some Clash. Other than that? Just pick the songs that make you feel happiest. The ones that connect to positive moments in your life.”

Whether you’re driving from Bethlehem to Boston like us, or anywhere else for that matter, ’80s is definitely in sync with the feel-good spirit of the road trip. And we’re here to help you connect the dots, La-la-la-la.

“It was such an innocent decade. So many people were growing up during that decade and maturing, and maybe even got their first car, and they remember when they made out for the first time,” Hunter said.

“And there’s such a sense of discovery to a road trip. Like when you watched MTV you watched bands and saw music you’d never heard before. MTV was an incredible discovery portal for new bands like Duran Duran, so if you’re on a road trip down a road you’ve never been before it’s also a great companion because of discovery and newness.”
