2. Yep, Elvis and surf music were considered
Oldies...

We never called it Classic Rock because back then, there was nothing so lasting as the word classic attached to anything remotely involved with Rock n Roll....
Motley Crew never did anything for me one way or the other., I just think the song, 19885, is very clever......

5. Brilliant video, too
It's "just" satire, but the way they channel some 80's stars is spot-on!

6. Tawny Kitaen too! She was on the car in the Whitesnake video...
Everytime I saw that video, it drove me crazy until someone told me who she was.

A nice one hit wonder.
