Radio 51, side A, track 2: “Broken Wings” by Mr. Mister, #89 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Mr. Mister - Broken WingsOh, Mr. Mister, it’s been nearly three years since we’ve heard from you on here, which is obviously far too long, but the good news is is that you’re back with an awesome song.  An awesome song that was considered one of the best 90 songs of the whole decade.  I don’t know if when I recorded this off the countdown was also the first time I’d actually heard this one or not.  I feel like that might have been the case, but I’ve heard this song so many times since then that I couldn’t tell you for sure.  It doesn’t really matter, Mr. Mister.  The important thing is that you’re here now.  Or you were there then.  I guess you’re both.  Writing in past and present tense confuses me sometimes.  All that really matters is that between yesterday’s song and today’s, my radio station was clearly doing something right and chose some fantastic songs to represent the 1980s.  It was going to be a long night, Mr. Mister, but that was just fine, because there was clearly going to be a LOT of awesome music all night.

  1. […] my room in front of my stereo when I heard this song for the first time.  This is one of those.  This was the second song featured on the “Top 90 of the ’80s”, and likely the first time I’d ever heard it.  Listening to it again, I’m right back […]
