80s music in Santiago (Part 4)

I was told last night that the idea to pump music (which, as I've noted, is almost all 80s music from the US and UK) into downtown Santiago came from Joaquín Lavín, a member of UDI (the far right party) who was once mayor of Santiago and twice a loser in presidential elections. Apparently it was an effort to beautify downtown. Ideology aside, I’d vote against him for that alone.

You missed the best one though. After I dropped you off at the airport, I heard "Hopelessly Devoted to You" by Olivia Newton John on the radio. I don't think I've heard that since I saw (or was dragged to see) Grease in the theater in 1978.
