I love the 80s and the music. One distressing thing about some of the biggest hits was about stalking. I was out and this song was played on the store speakers. It was Private Eyes and I recall the song and video. I thought it was about a PI tracking a subject for his job. Nope listening carefully it was about stalking. A few years ago I discovered Every Breath You Take was NOT about a man whose SO was a smoker but stalking. Huge ginormous 80s hit. Then most infamous, that I amazingly got at the time,it was about an obsessed man following his girlfriend. That was Cars's You Might Think.
In the early 80s following and obsession were the words used not stalking. Not sure when we shifted to the term stalking.
Either I was exceedingly naive back then or I twisted songs to fit my world view.
