09/17/01 - The
Escape Club resurface online
The Escape Club is pleased to announce the unveiling of their official
web site: www.theescapeclub.net.
The site, which launched Monday, September 17th features a full discography,
bio, photos, video clips and much, much more.
The site is completely overseen by Escape Club members Trevor Steel
and John Holliday, and is in no way controlled by any record company
or corporate entity. The purpose of the site is to serve as an online
‘gathering place’ for friends and family of the band, and to see if
Escape Club fans would like to hear more material from the band. Trevor
and John would also like to share their musical project CLOUD 10 with
the site’s visitors.
Originating in the UK, The Escape Club ironically made a name for
themselves with the release of the number 1 single "Wild,
Wild West" (from the album of the same name), but was nothing
in comparison to the public reaction to the release of the song "I’ll
Be There," from their second album Dollars

eagles at the offices of Cage/Fish and Associates for a recurring

to ask Downey to stay beyond his eight-episode commitment.
Currently Playing: Jon Cryer goes Oliver Stone as conspiracy theorist

in Ringwald's first episode (airing November 1).
Currently Playing: Rob Lowe plays serious guy Sam Seaborn, deputy

1977-1981 run, Mulligan played stepfather to Billy Crystal's gay character

08/14/00 - Tiffany Album Available Oct. 10
Tiffany will release "The Color Of Silence," her first full-length
collection and U.S. studio album in a decade. "I'm not searching any
longer," she says of the songs on the album. "It's not manufactured.
I hope the album surprises those who didn't necessarily care for my
music before -- pleasantly surprises them, that is." Scheduled for release
Oct. 10, "The Color Of Silence" is thoughtful, intelligent, and full
of grace. It's also unpretentious. Consider it Tiffany's equivalent
to Alanis Morissette's landmark "Jagged Little Pill."
It was 13 years ago -- Aug. 29, 1987 -- that Tiffany's "I Think We're
Alone Now" debuted at No. 84 on The Billboard Hot 100. Within five
weeks, the song climbed its way to No. 1, where it remained for two
weeks. "George [Tobin, former manager] played the track for me, and
I sang over it," remembers Tiffany. "It really wasn't the type of
music I wanted to make, but I was 14 at the time, and I was thankful
to be recording. All my friends loved it -- and that was important.
Eventually, the song grew on me. Once I began dancing and performing
to it, it became me." "I Think We're Alone Now" was culled from the
singer's 1987 multi-million-selling eponymous debut on MCA, which
reached the summit of The Billboard 200. Additional hits from the
album included "Could've Been" and "I Saw Him Standing There," which
peaked at No. 1 and No. 7, respectively, on the Hot 100.
In 1988, Tiffany ran away from home, sued her mother for emancipation,
and released her top-20 MCA sophomore album, "Hold An Old Friend's
Hand." "Open My Eyes," the first single from "The Color of Silence,"
will be delivered to several radio formats this week, and is scheduled
for Sept. 12 retail release.
07/27/00 - Go-Go's New Songs!
What good is an apology sixteen years late? In the case of
the Go-Go's new song "Apology," which they previewed Friday night at
their concert at Jones Beach in Wantaugh, N.Y., the answer is good enough
to stand tall next to any of the greatest hits that filled their live
set. The reunited group also performed two other sassy, immediately
catchy new songs, which may or may not be titled "Kissing Asphalt" and
"Sonic Super 21st Century Boy" something-or-other. All three are from
their forthcoming Vision of Nowness album (due in the spring), their
first full studio effort since Talk Show in 1984. "Sing along," guitarist
Jane Wiedlin teased, "Just make up the words" ...
07/27/00 - Metal Fatigue

... they comprised 47% of our voters! The favorite free game, with 40%

Can It Be Now. Rewind
was the favorite VIP game.
10/29/99 - New VIP and Game Account System
With a new cookie system, we are able to alleviate confusion
that was previously caused by having a separate VIP and game Usernames.
In addition, login information is automated so you won't have to enter
your Username and Password every time you play a game. With the new
system, when you register, a cookie with encrypted login information
will be sent to your browser. When necessary, The '80s Server will check
your cookie and log you in.
10/14/99 - Posted '80s Server Survey to ask visitors and VIP Members
their opinions on the site
This survey, our first, received 481 responses! People really
had some strong opinions about the site ... how much they liked it and
what they'd like to see changed, added (mostly people want more movies,
more games, more more more) or updated. In response, we've lowered our
monthly subscription rates and our yearly rates, are coming up with
new sections to the site, building a sitemap, and other fun stuff! Because
so many people didn't like the multiple login procedure to play games,
we put together a new cookie procedure (see note on 10/29/99 above).
10/14/99 - Posted new VIP Return
of the Jedi Quiz.
