I pretty much missed pop/rock in the 80's. I was at the NC School of the Arts, focusing on classical music, for a few years at the beginning of the 80's. After that, I spent most of my time getting to know folk music and Broadway soundtracks so I rarely listened to pop radio.
I caught up eventually. Some parts took longer than others, and, although I had heard Why Can't This Be Love on the radio, I hadn't really paid that much attention to it until the last few years. I recently put it on my mp3 player, and I've really enjoyed it - particularly the guitar interlude.
