For so many reasons, I ♥ The 80’s.
It was a fun decade, even though I was only 7 when I left it. A lot of the best movies, music, fashions, and products came from the 80’s and we’re still talking about them today.
Back in college, the art club and I threw an 80’s costume party with tons of bodacious jams and some pretty rad custom t-shirts.
Anyway, here are some of my top picks from that time –
Movies – The Goonies, The Neverending Story, Labyrinth, Back To The Future, Spaceballs, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Beetlejuice (even though it scared the crap out of me), Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure…oh there’s way too many, check this out Best 80’s Movies
Music – Don’t Stop Believin’, Sweet Child O’ Mine, With Or Without You, Down Under, Africa, Jessie’s Girl, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, We’re Not Gonna Take It, Born In The U.S.A., Livin’ On A Prayer, Billie Jean, Jack & Diane, It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, Walk Like An Egyptian, and pretty much the rest of this list!
Toys – Glo Worms, Jem And The Holograms, Easy Bake Oven, Etch A Sketch, Fashion Plates, Fraggles, Lite Brite, Mr. Potato Head, Popples, Sea Monkeys, Silly Putty, Pocket Rockers, Skip-It…here’s some more good ones!
That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout, Willis.
