This is the beginning of the eighties and everybody is moving to the beat of Pop music, as the brand-new concept of the music video appears on television for the first time. On the other hand, in Dublin, Conor, a teenager with a sensitive heart, is trying to deal with a tense family relationship, reconnect with his older brother, while dealing with the hostile environment of his new public school... But then one day, he saw her. Tall, with long chestnut hair, a buttery complexion and big, dark eyes, an enigmatically beautiful girl was standing in front of the gate of his school, indolently observing people passing by. Who is she and how could a boy ever get noticed by such a distant girl? Easy... he would form a band! With every lyric Conor writes, the gap narrows and with every song he plays, her heart fills with affection. In a sea of opportunities ahead of them, what does the future hold for a love like this?
At the beginning of the movie, it is shown that it is 1985. The family gathers to watch Top of the Pops (as most all did in those days!). They showed the video for Duran Duran's "Rio" and the elder brother was talking about them like they were brand new.

At the band's gig, the DJ plays Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", which was not released until 1987. The film takes place in 1985.
When Conor says he's a futurist, regarding his music, Eamon lists some bands as a comparison, including Joy Division, which broke up in 1980, five years ago.

The Lalor family watch Duran Duran's video for "Rio" - Duran Duran: Rio - on Top of the Pops. Brendan claims that it could go either way as to whether or not they succeed. However, the song was released in 1982 and the film takes place in 1985, by which time Duran Duran was already an extremely successful band and a household name.
During the music video they film in the school, Cosmo mentions the movie Back to the Future. However, Sing Street is based in 1985 and Back to the Future was not released until 20 December 1985 in Ireland. With the time frame of this movie and no indication of him seeing Back to the Future during this time, it makes no sense for him to be aware of what it is.
Evan's Golf cabriolet shows a late 60's Dublin registration. Irish car registrations stay with the vehicle for its life, so it should have a registration issued between 1980 and 1985.
When he is giving her a lift on her bike they pass a store front with a web address on it deafhear.ie, Url's had not been invented then.
While filming the "Riddle of the Model" music video, Eamon knocks one of the drummer's cymbals with his guitar while doing a spin. The cymbal vanishes in the next shot when Conor sings at the microphone.
When the Lawlor family is watching the "Rio" music video, Ann asks Brendan who is that guitarist (John Taylor). Brendan responds he is cute and teases her, but says John Taylor is a bassist, not a guitarist. The video does not show either instruments, and since Ann had never heard of Duran Duran, it is impossible for her to know that he is a guitarist or bassist respectively.
