Welcome everybody to the launch of a brand new feature here at Of Course, I Could Be Wrong...
What I want from you are your suggestions of stuff from that most cringeworthy decade, the 1980s, that could actually be regarded by right-minded people, such as ourselves, as a "good thing." It can be anything - music, film, books, people, news events etc. etc.
You can give me your nominations via email or by commenting on the threads. You stand more chance of having your suggestions posted if they come with an explanation of why you consider them worthy of inclusion.
To get things going I offer up the music of Pete Wylie and his band Wah! along with the international, and eventually successful, campaign to free Nelson Mandela.
