Flopcast 480: Yacht Rock and Yoda

Flopcast 480 yoda

Flopcast episode 480! We’re kicking off ten weeks of 80s-themed shows… because when do we ever get to talk about the 80s around here? And this week we’re looking at the year 1980. It was the year that brought us Flash GordonCaddyshack, Pac-Man, the Rubik’s Cube, and a cheater in the Boston Marathon. (Some of us also cheated at the Rubik’s Cube…) We also review the Billboard pop chart for this week in 1980, and find Billy Joel’s first number one song, a couple of Xanadu favorites from Olivia and ELO, country rock from Eddie Rabbitt, early new wave from Gary Numan, and just a massive heap of yacht rock. (So… much… Ambrosia.) Also this week: Taskmaster is a Black Widow villain AND Kornflake’s favorite game show; Baby Yoda is a Chia Pet; and Happy Birthday to our favorite Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter. All the world is waiting for you.
