In the time capsule today…
We find a new, legal and unregulated party drug quickly spreading across America. Ecstasy pills could even be ordered through the mail, until later in the year when the DEA classified it as a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
We find a time travel movie in theaters written by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. The script was written after Bob wondered if he would have been friends with his father had they had attended school together. Michael J. Fox stars in “Back to the Future."
And we find a song on the radio by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. To skirt controversy the band adamantly denied that the lyrics were sexual. Later they admitted what everyone knew, “it was about shagging.”
