This week on HARK: two requests from 19X7, possibly requested in 20X7! We are digging into some old, old requests and wind up listening to two songs that feel very representative of their respective decades. “It Must Have Been Love (Christmas for the Broken Hearted)” by Roxette feels so 80s for a song that didn’t reach its peak until the 80s were (arguably) over, while “Christmas” by Blues Traveller is the kind of song you probably couldn’t get away with writing after 1997 unless you’re Phish (also, Phish did kind of write this song).
Our ranking music this week is “Hook” by Blues Traveller.
Thank you to Mindy and paulsebert for these requests!
