Madonna, Depeche Mode, The Cars—every Monday evening is a full-on '80s flashback thanks to the great music featured on The CW's The Carrie Diaries.

It's a walk down memory lane for fans like me who grew up buying these hits on casette and blasting them from boom boxes or watching their videos on the brand new Music Television Network.

But for younger viewers, what's old is new again! AnnaSophia Robb is perfect as the 16-year-old version of Carrie Bradshaw, even if the actress doesn't have any actual firsthand knowledge of the '80s. AnnaSophia, 19, wasn't born until '93!
