1985 research for my cozy mystery

Writing a novel based in the 80s makes research fun but also it feels like a trip down memory lane!

Remember the songs "Careless Whisper" by Wham!, "Like a Virgin" by Madonna, I want to know what love is" by Foreigner. We had to wait for the tape to be released so we could play it in our Sony Walkman.

What about friendship pins, buttons on your jean jacket, ribbon barrettes, jelly bracelets and blue Reebok shoes? I was wearing all of these things!

In 1985, Ronald Reagan was president of the USA, the Edmonton Oilers were the Stanley Cup Champs, and the San Francisco 49ers won the Super Bowl.
