* ''Young Manga/{{Blackjack}}'' starts with a sequence mentioning the political issues Japan was having in the 1960s.



* Several Music/EvelynEvelyn songs start out mentioning things that occured that year. For example, "The Tragic Events of September" (which is about the day the twins were born) features the lines "The year is 1985. ''Film/SaintElmosFire'' is at the top of the charts, the wreckage of the UsefulNotes/{{Titanic}} has just been discovered at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, and on a small farm on the Kansas-Colorado border a young mother is about to give birth".

* Franchise/ArchieComics did a few stories extolling the virtues of TheGayNineties that where essentially this trope on the comics page (so no soundtrack).

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted on an episode of ''Series/FamilyTies''. Could be a coincidence, could be an ActorAllusion. Alex takes over as manager of Jennifer's GirlGroup band, the Permanent Waves. He makes them wear 50s-style hairdos and dresses, and they sing "Mister Sandman." The montage, in black and white, shows them singing, as Jennifer gets more and more disgruntled, because she wants to wear fashionable clothes and play contemporary TheEighties songs.

* Parodied in ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'' when a woman who's being interrogated unveils information about the killer's background to the detectives for something that happened in 1996, but the screen actually shows a litany of pop culture, fashion, events, and people iconic to the 1980s to the confusion of the cops. It turns out she was watching a nostalgia program on the telly during her flashback.

* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' has a RunningGag of doing this as over-the-top as possible. One episode has a shot of [=BoJack=] driving down the street in the 1980s, in front of shops selling Rubik's Cubes and 'cocaine mirrors', in a suit, singing along to a song with the lyrics "[[TropeName Generic 80s New Wave beat]]". The exact shot is repeated later in the episode but with inflatable chair shops and teens playing hackey-sack ("Generic 90s grunge song, everyone in flannel..."), and ''again'' two seasons later but with subprime mortgage sellers and flip-phone shops ("Generic 2000 and something pop song, everyone's {{AutoTune}}d so the voices sound weird..."). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlfK51tN-xo Here's a supercut]].
