‘Meber this silliness?

that's high school vintage for me (class of '84). I remember geeking out to that one with my troops at sweet 16s, and school dances. Classic video, too.

One of the few '80s "hits" I don't like.

[2] OK, then turn in your mullet, and skinny tie at the front office, young man.

slightly off topic, but 80s music related: received an email from David Byrne today. Not even an acquaintance, I'm on a mailing list since I downloaded his latest album with Eno a couple years ago. He says his music is "all over" the Wall Street 2 soundtrack. Check it, this is from David Byrne:

"Stone approached me about music a while back, and I met him at an office and gave him a pile of records. He ended up mainly using a lot of songs from my recent collaboration with Brian Eno (Everything That Happens Will Happen Today), a few songs from recent solo and dance score records, and a reprise of "This Must Be The Place," the Talking Heads song that was used in the first Wall Street movie. It was almost like I'd scored the picture.

Stone was super accommodating - inviting me numerous times to view rough assemblies to be sure I was OK with how the music was being used. This is pretty unusual; most times licensing a song for a movie is a bureaucratic formality, and the artist is never invited into the process. That said, I've only turned down movie song use once or twice for aesthetic reasons - if I thought a scene made unfortunate associations with a song."
