OMG!
I loved everything about the 80's!
The music, the Reaganomics, the movies, the fact that I was so much younger, just everything.
You can't listen to anything "New Wave" and not feel good.

huh.. the 80's.. my youth ;o)

we had the "Neue deutsch Welle" (new german wave), a time with lots of german songs, from Nena, Major Tom, Extrabreit.. *hach*

the 80's seemed to be the "hard-rock" era.. twisted sister, alice Cooper,, that was what we heard, too.. but also Tears for Fears, Erasure, DM...

TV: Knight Rider, A-Team, The Fall Guy (I'm still in love with Howie :love: ), Dallas, Denver, Captain Future

movie: Top Gun, Stand by me, Dirty Dancing

what else?
horrible hair, clothes... and the magic cube ;o)

I was in junior high in the 1980's, but I still remember quite a bit.

I saw the movie Wall Street the other night, it was so cutting edge when it came out with the huge cell phones and huge DOS computer systems, but seeing it now, it's a reminder how far technology has advanced since then. I like watching that stuff.

One thing that really stands out in my memory was everytime my girlfriends and I put our purses down on the floor or table, they would make a loud thunk from the cans of hairspray in them, Aqua Net of course!

...but were they as cool as my turquoise-wash zipper-ankled pegged jeans I wore my junior year?

Here's another 80's memory: The Breakfast Club
*(and any Molly Ringwald, John Cusack & John Cryer movie)
