In the fourth episode of the Branded in the 80s podcast I decide to dive into a topic I don’t cover very often at the site, music. In particular I take a closer look at one of my favorite 80s era anthems, John Farnham’s Thunder in Your Heart. I talk about the song, the soundtrack that it appears on (the 1986 film Rad), and the shock I had when I found out that not just one but two of my other favorite anthem artists have also covered the song, Joe Esposito (of the You’re the Best Karate Kid fame) and Stan Bush (of the 1986 Transformers The Touch fame,) Join me as I break down the song, compare and contrast the different versions and play a brand new remix that combines all three versions into one crazy bit of audio cacophony.
