Here are some possible choices

-Contrast and compare two songs (or albums), one an early creation and another a late creation by an artist from the 1980s that seem to deal with similar themes.  How has their music and lyrical concerns/artistry changed through the decade?  What contemporary influences seemed to shape these creations (in the personal life of the artist and their historical context)?

-Choose an historical event, social movement, or issue/topic of concern during the decade of the Eighties.  Summarize what you’ve found about this in relevant books, magazines, newspapers, videos, including those of the time.  How is this reflected in the work of musical artists during said event/movement/topic?
