great song, especially the off-beat bridge part in the middle, but none of these guys were alive in 1981. Where does that reference come from?

It reminds me of a relationship I had with my best guy friend at the time. It didn't work and things got ruined, now I have the memory from every time I see a Chevy Malibu like his car. I feel like this was written for me lol :3
