It was the era of yuppies, Ronald Reagan, New Wave Music, Miami Vice, men with ponytails, Valley Girls and wearing your shirt collar up (did anyone ever explain the reason for that?).

This weekend’s music thread is a trip back to that simpler time of the 1980’s, when greed was good and Republicans were undermining America.

White Wedding – Billy Idol

Money For Nothing – Dire Straits

Couldn’t Stand the Weather – Stevie Ray Vaughan

I’ll Be Watching You – The Police

Another Brick in the Wall – Pink Floyd
