It's our annual Oscar Special, and this week we're finally ready to tackle one of the most wildly successful movie soundtracks of all time. That's right, this show is all about Dirty Dancing! It's hit single, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life", won the 1987 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the competition wasn't even close. We'll get into that, and how the song very nearly didn't even happen!
Join us as we dig into that one, as well as classic hits like "Hungry Eyes" and "She's Like The Wind", marvel at the sheer pop perfection of The Ronettes' "Be My Baby" and Bruce Channel's "Hey! Baby", and ponder the dissonance of album cuts from Tom Johnston, Zappacosta and The Blow Monkeys. So practice those lifts and let's hit the dance floor!
