I was a recovering hippie fresh out of grad school in a farm town and landed in Chicago with the designer jeans/disco crowd. Everybody was going for their MBA.

MTV got launched and actually played music videos all day. I remember Cindi Lauper stood out for some reason.

Those were the days. A friend of ours was the first among us to get satellite TV and a big screen projector...we used to go over there on the weekends and watch MTV and VH1 all night. (except Alix brought a book cuz she hated music videos.)

Just scanned through and I don't think anyone has mentioned the Member's Only jackets, Jordache jeans ( the tighter the better), thin new wave ties.

Movies : Caddyshack, Stripes, Airlplane

Music Ted Nugent (scream dream tour), Scorpoins, Def Lepard, The return of Ozzy (Crazy Train), AC/DC, Van Halen ( when they were good), Prince, and of course Michael Jackson and Thiller and the list could go on and on.

I guess every decade has its share of high- and low-lights. Most of you seem to have fond memories of some pretty ordinary pop culture (and that is, of course, fine). Sure, there were classics created in movies, music and TV... but I think there was at LEAST as much bad as good.

Now, if we were talking the 70's... THAT was a decade!! LOL

Now, where did I put my leggings, lace skirt and rubber bracelets??

Being the gothic victorian vampyre tha I am, I adore Sisters of Mercy! That song will always have a place in my heart. Spectacular, and the length is enough to make you feel it will go on and on and on. Would that it could...

OMG, everyone had a Member's only jacket...LOL
What about Sergio Valente? I even had a cat named Sergio!

I loved Alice Cooper, still do. Went to a concert a year and a half ago. He was still as good as ever and he had Cheap Trick open for him. It was a great night.

I might be a little foggy on this but from a food standpoint Cajun and Blackened ( Chef Paul Prudome and K-Pauls Restaurant in new Orleans) protiens became the rage, as well as Buffalo wings spread across the country.

Zeppelin rocked! Still do. HUGE fan! THough Zep was much more 70s. Poor John Bonham. What was he THINKING?? Best drumer ever. Jerk drank too much. He killed himself. Not by choice.
