In music, at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 is the rock classic Money for Nothing by the Dire Straits. From the album Brothers in Arms is one of the most recognizable songs and music videos from the 80's. This song is a favorite of mine, but you do owe it to yourself to listen to the entire Brothers in Arms album, one of the all-time best rock albums.
At the Box Office Back to the Future will hold the top spot for one more week. Although Back to the Future was dominating theaters, there were two other films of note gracing the big screen. The fantasy-comedy film Teen Wolf debuted, also starring Michael J. Fox. The film is about a teenager who discovers he can turn into a werewolf, which helps him succeed at basketball. Yes, the plot is terrible, but I miss the days of fun movies.
Also playing is the romantic comedy Better Off Dead) starring John Cusack. A favorite among 80's connoisseurs, the film is about a depressed high schooler who's girlfriend breaks up with him just before Christmas. I am obligated to say only good things about this film since my wife listens to this show.
