1984: A Probing Musical Retrospective

Categories: Fiesta!


1. Music in Movies Excelled
The '80s heralded some stellar blockbusters movies, and in 1984, a lot of them were anchored by killer soundtrack accompaniments. Ghostbusters, Beverly Hills Cop, Footloose, and The Karate Kid all yielded choice pop cuts that are just as memorable as the films themselves.

Moreover, there were great films purely about music during '84. This Is Spinal Tap turned the rock mockumentary to eleven leaving rock behemoth Ozzy Osbourne thinking it was real, and movie lovers laughing hysterically to this day. Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense remains perhaps the best concert film ever. Oscar laden Amadeus gave us a howling, giggling, party animal version of Mozart, able to compose history changing symphonies seemingly at whim. Wonderful stuff.
