Doug: Since most of us were in high school and/or college in the 1980s, I'm sure we can have discourse on favorite popular songs that spoke of the fear (real or imagined, spun from propaganda or personal agendas) that was precipitated from the presidency of Ronald Reagan. "Ronnie's got a new gun", indeed -- that "tired old man that we elected King", sang Don Henley. I got my BA at the same school Reagan got his -- I was front/center to his presidency. So here's to "The Wild, Wild West" by the Escape Club, "Two Tribes" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and "Land of Confusion" by Genesis. What are some memorable songs from that era? And hey -- we sure don't want to open up a political can o' worms, because that's not what we do here. But some of those sorts of tunes did make you want to tap your feet, huh?
