How does Valley Girl 2020 Compare to Valley Girl (1983)? w/ Damon Gross

Damon stops by the podcast again to talk about the 1983 cult classic film, Valley Girl, which famously launched Nicholas Cage's career.  We talk about it's popular but never officially released soundtrack and how the movie helped make Modern English's "Melt With You" the huge iconic 80s hit that we now know it as. Damon also has some choice words for the 2020 Valley Girl remake and we discuss recent 80s and 90s films that use music and references that seem too obvious.
