Can't slow down : how 1984 became pop's blockbuster year

Matos, Michaelangelo2020
Books
Everybody knows the hits of 1984 - pop music's greatest year. From 'Thriller' to 'Purple Rain,' 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' to 'Like a Virgin,' 'Hello' to 'Against All Odds,' 'Sister Christian' to 'Love Is a Battlefield,' 'What's Love Got to Do with It' to 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,' they continue to dominate advertising, karaoke nights, and the soundtracks for film classics and TV hits. But the story of that thrilling, turbulent time, an era when Top 40 radio was both the leading edge of popular culture and a moral battleground, has never been told with the full detail it deserves, until now. 'Can't Slow Down' is the definitive portrait of the exploding world of mid-eighties pop and the time it defined, from Cold War anxiety to the home-computer revolution.
