Back in the late 80s [87-88], there was a plethora of “age-change” movies, but with a hint of a yuppie vibe – 18 Again!, Like Father Like Son… and Vice Versa (which, incidentally, is actually based on a book first published in 1882). While 18 Again! was my favorite at the time, Vice Versa was more of my generation (Fred Savage was one of the leads), especially when it came to the soundtrack. One of the songs, Mony, Mony – as performed by Billy Idol – has stuck with me, and I still think of the movie whenever I hear the song.
