Full disclosure: I am a treasure trove of random 80's pop songs. Everything from Journey, Fleetwood Mack pre- and post-Stevie Nicks' departure, The Police, Billy Idol and everything in between I could sing verbatim at the drop of a hat. Needless to say, it makes karaoke at my house lots of fun. Luckily for true 80's babies like myself, we are not alone. Detroit producer Zo! and Little Brother's Phonte a/k/a/ Phontigallo have teamed up for Zo! & Tigallo Love the 80's!, an homage to all the songs us kids heard when MTV actually played videos. Your first response will likely be one of absolute astonishment as you giggle hard enough to realize that both Zo! and Phonte are dead serious with these songs' production. My anticipation for this project to drop is only rivaled by my desire to find out who will be number one on our countdown. Do your best to remember the creators of the original songs below.
Zo! and Tigallo: "Africa"
