American Psycho and the associated music - Huey Lewis, Whitney Houston, and Phil Collins.

Land Down Under is an excellent call, too.

Also The Cars. I think they might be the "most" "80's" band in a way. Bret Easton Ellis referenced them (obtusely) in Less Than Zero, which is more sui generis "80's" in its composition and narrative.

But then again I've always preferred LA to New York.
