I was having an argument about Top Gun with a friend a couple years ago. I was talking about how great it was, and he laughed at me for liking the "gayest movie ever." I was like "what 10 year old boy didn't watch that movie and instantly want to be a fighter pilot?" Turns out, I hadn't watched the movie since I was 16, and hence had never picked up the *** subtext. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Oh well, I still defend its dogfight scenes as the pinnacle of the genre. And, it was a great compliment to the game After Burner for Nintendo.

I was born in '88; also, I've never actually seen Top Gun. I had a friend who absolutely loved it, though. All I know about it I know from him and people talking about it online.

I remember when I went to Colorado Springs to help my sister move to Ft. Bragg; we were in some karaoke bar when two AF guys sang that Righteous Brothers song together. Having not even seen Top Gun yet (and this was in '00 or '01) I laughed my *** off thinking, that's *so* ***! After seeing the movie, though, didn't change my opinion any.

I realize it's 1983 in your timeline, but most of the posters here aren't current on the state of early 80s music. Top Gun came out in '86. I was 14. Many posters here weer probably busy being conceived. You know who they know who listens to Berlin? Their grandmothers. Also, apparently, you, but they don't know you're stuck in that parallel 1983 dimension.

When Top Gun came out I was living on a Navel Air Station, pregnant with my youngest daughter. I can't remember if I saw the movie in the theater or had to wait for it to be release on VCR. Between moving twice that year and the high risk pregnancy, my bet is I didn't see it when it first came out.

Pop music in the 80's sucked big time. Give me Rock and Roll from the 60's and 70's.

Then I hated Disco when it came out, back in High School.

On the other hand Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, Guns 'n Roses, Motley Crüe, W.A.S.P., Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, Poison, Twisted Sister (their famous years anyway), Bon Jovi, The Sisters Of Mercy, Van Halen's best albums, Alice Cooper's Thrash at the end of the 80's, Black Sabbath with Dio and more like that. The 80's had a lot of good in them.

Of all of those, Sisters of Mercy is the only band I have any interest in. Metallica had some decent songs, once upon a time. If the rest had died stillborn in their various garages my life would not have changed one whit.

I like Metallica and about 3 Guns n' Roses songs. The rest of those bands - no interest.

There are a lot of bands that had great 80's careers, but they were formed in the late 70's (U2, The Cure, The Clash, etc.) The Smiths, Nirvana, and REM were from the 80's, however.

Pretty much.

There was the occasional song I remember or liked, and some of the metal stuff I started listening to a bit like 10 years after it came out; mostly forgettable though. Spent the 80's mostly listening to country music, in retrospect it was a good choice.

A lot of Pop Music does suck. But the 80s did have a lot of great music by the likes of Phil Collins/Genesis, Michael Jackson, Prince, U2, Springsteen, The Replacements, The Police, Ac/Dc, Husker Du, Metallica, ZZ Top, R.E.M., Bob Dylan, Sonic Youth, Bad Religion, NOFX, Black Flag, The Misfits [before Danzig left], Danzig Himself [Mother is an awesome song - suck it], Bad Brains, The Dead Kennedys, The Descendents, Jane's Addiction, The Clash's London Calling, The Meat Puppets...

The 80s weren't all bad...

Not really, it was just 1:45 AM by the time I posted that so I clearly wasn't paying enough attention.

I don't remember hearing any of those getting airplay but you're obviously much more invested in Berlin trivia than I am so I'll let you have this one.


You remembered "No More Words", but don't remember any of those others played on the radio? That's... strange. It's not like I ever owned a Berlin album, or was a big fan, or went to one of their concerts or anything, but those three are the songs I think of when someone mentions the band. I actually had forgotten that they did No More Words until you posted it. I distinctly remember that Metro was a huge radio hit at the time. *** a bit less, more because most stations wouldn't play it. Masquerade wasn't as big, but still got played a lot.

Maybe. Once again, Berlin obviously played a much more formative role in your years than they did in mine. I'm content admitting that your knowledge of Berlin far exceeds mine.

Here's my theory. Fishing is hard.

Really though, the area of the woods this guy chose to make home is really nothing more than what Mainers would call the suburbs. It's probably a 45min drive from the center of our capitol, Augusta. Hunting would have for sure gotten him attention. Even fishing though, he'd sooner or later get checked for a license, for sizes etc. I'm sure that lake is busy during summer and fall.

He was preserving his image.

Might have. I never put much energy of memorizing everything that played. I remember Julie Brown, but I couldn't begin to tell you what songs played when she hosted.
