Flashback: "Money for Nothing" is a song by British group Dire Straits, which became an international hit when released as a single in 1985. The song was notable for its controversial lyrics, groundbreaking music video and a cameo appearence by Sting singing the song's iconic falsetto introduction and backing chorus, a borrowing of the cable network's slogan "I want my MTV". The video was also the first to be aired on MTV Europe when the network started on 1987. The songwriting credits are shared between Mark Knopfler and Sting. Sting was visiting during the recording of the song, and was invited to add some background vocals. Sting has stated that his only contribution was the "I Want My MTV" line, which was sung in partial parody of his own song "Don't Stand So Close to Me", originally recorded by The Police.

Flashback: The Clash were an English punk rock band, active from mid 70's to mid 80's and were part of the original wave of UK punk. The song "Rock the Casbah" lyrics include a mixture of Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, and North African terms such as sharif, bedouin, sheikh, kosher, raga, muezzin, and casbah. Some theories indicate that the song was inspired by the ban of rock music in Iran under Ayatollah Khomeini. The King ordered jet fighters to bomb any people in violation of the ban. The pilots ignored the orders, and instead played rock music on their cockpit radios.
