You bring up a good point here.  I looked at it astrologically by checking what
signs the planets were transiting, but I couldn't find anything.  Maybe someone
better than I could explain why music went from being creative and spiritual to
crass commercialism.  In the USA, the music of the 80's reflected the interests
of the yuppies and the Reagan administration: the quick accumulation of wealth
with no thought to tomorrow.

In 1980 I switched from the graphic arts field to computers, but I never thought
I was part of a mass trend.  I just fell in love with them and found one could
do graphic arts and layout easier and faster on a computer.
