Wasn't that right around the time they left the show?

I associate it with 1985 when Catlin's flashbacks started and after Brittany first came to town. For example when Brittany went back to Dry Creek to make up her mind what to do after Mary Page Keller left as Sally. But that doesn't mean that You Were Always On My Mind didn't come up later as well. Brittany thought about Catlin constantly, even when she was married to Peter.

SB truly was a soap of the 1980s. I was rewatching a few early scenes and always enjoyed Jade consoling drunk Amy at the State Street Bar before Brick came in and had to rescue Amy from a lecherous patron. "Dancing in the Dark" by The Boss was playing in the background, to be immediately followed by "If This Is It" by Huey Lewis and The News. It tickles me to remember that those songs were brand new then and not the pop classics they are now.

There was a scene around the same time when Christie has her Walkman on and dancing to Madonna's Material Girl at the Capwell mansion. And then another scene where Kelly borrowed some of Ted's records and one of them was Bruce Springsteen's big albums at the time.

A CLASSIC telling the story through the music too! Yes, Amy, Brick is it.

They really used some classic songs on this show.

I think it is a shame that Sophia never got to get justice from Minx for switching her child at birth and making her think she shot her son.

 

I get that Minx 1.0 was treated like a sacred cow, but by the time Minx 2.0 rolled into town Sophia should have smacked her so hard that the magical spring water couldn't save her face.

That would have been awesome and given Sophia more storyline. Sorry the one awesome scene right after it was all revealed wasn't enough.

What I never fully agreed with was the assumption that Brick was only alive because of the switch. The reality is that the bits we saw of Channing showed that Channing and Brick had very different moral compasses. I don't think Sophia would have shot Brick because Brick wouldn't have had all of those people parading through the library (or office- tgat room) that day. Also not sure he would have been on the "get Santana and my son gone" train with CC. I believe Brick and CC would have butted heads worse than either CC and Mason or Ted. I kind of feel like Channing took after his bio Dad and had some issues. Sorry, I know the show tried to turn Mr. Wallace into a decent guy, but the dude full on abandoned his wife and child.

TIME OUT! What!?! You mean Sophia didn't shoot Channing?!? 

 

Remember, I only watched up to 1989 the first go around, so I wasn't aware if they continued with this storyline past that. I knew about the Eden/Lisa thing vaguely. Wow, this just gave me another reason to continue watching

I am watching today. I love the scenes where Minx shoots CC so much. Capped by the scenes with Mason once CC gets home.

Yes it is a fun scene, but there are no long term story consequences for what occurred, and as I recall, the Lockridges never find out that CC and Dylan were rigging the casino

You have to rewatch the episode when Cruz reenacts the murder (complete with everyone getting dressed in formal wear for some reason) to find out the real killer.
