Oh captain, my captain



Double_3 Did you correctly guess last week's "Name that 80s Tune" from Episode 99 of Stuck in the 80s: It was "Captain of Her Heart" by Double (pronounced "doo-blay").

Who got the challenge right? Just about everyone. Seriously. We had more than 30 correct answers. That's incredible considering Double is sadly remembered as a one-hit wonder.

Double was a Swiss group founded by Kurt Maloo and Felix Haug. Though "Captain of Her Heart" was their breakthrough hit, hard-core fans will also recommend "Devil's Ball," "Rangoon Moon" and "Woman of the World." The group broke up in 1987, and Haug died in 2004 at age 52.

Maloo still performs though. He has an official website, an entertaining blog, a store on CafePress and a new album called "Maloo vs. Double: Loopy Avenue." He reworks many of Double's songs on the new disc, including the aforementioned "Captain of Her Heart."

The landmark century mark for the Stuck in the 80s is almost upon us. I finished editing the show last night, but I want to take a final listen to it before releasing it.

It's just over an hour long, which might make it our longest show to date. I tried to squeeze in as many fan greetings as possible, but a few will have to wait for future shows.

Look for a couple surprises in the 100th show, including a new Name that Tune challenge that will have you hitting rewind on iTunes a couple hundred times.
