While trying to track down individual songs and remixes from Future Unlimited's "Offbeat Music, Vol. 2",
I found the video for Ryan Paris - Dolce Vita:
It's a catchy, carefree 80's track, but what jumps out immediate from the comments section is the contrast between people of the 80s and the modern era, encapsulated by comments like these:
That was the life 1983 was really a dolce vita. Now we have this dark world with tech every where.
Other point to the lack of wearable technology that people defer to when they're uncomfortable, nervous, or bored. Interesting to think that we're living in a non-stylized cyberpunk dystopia the 80's themselves imagined.
