1980s Festival

There is a 1980s revival festival going on in my ipod. 

I'm not sure exactly what happened - I have always staunchly fended off any temptation to wallow in nostalgia, and smugly looked down on people my age cavorting merrily to Boney M or Modern Talking. (Though the difference may lie in quality : Boney M was crap even in 1978. Music doesn't automatically improve with age. It's not wine.)

Surprisingly, I now find myself running merrily to :
The Pet Shop Boys,
New Order,
Alison Moyet of Yazoo, and 
Duran Duran!

I have, however, decided to try and stay away from the Simple Minds. 
At some point, you simply have to draw a line.
