I rest my case.

Got a pretty good set of power bangs going on right now. So bizarre than I have the best hair of my life in my 60s! I only dreamed of a ponytail this long in my prime.

Oh sure, bring up the worst time in the life of single strand, baby fine haired person, such as myself. Forced to be the ugly step-sister & shunned by one & all

Bring on the leggings revival however, still got a good set of pipes, might need a extra long top though

I love 80's music so diverse everything from Elvis Costello and Depeche Mode to hair bands. My favorites are new wave music. I found a lot of the hair bands to be too commercial. Heart and Pat Benatar rock!

Absolutely love REM Sandy, and I also love Bryan Ferry, Roxy music. Not too long ago stayed up half the nite watching you tube videos of Roxy Music. Oh and how can we forget the Clash, Rock the Casbah!

Fronch Bread; Fronch Fries; Fronch Dressing. And to drink...Peru!

Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you shoved a lump of coal up his @$$, in two weeks, you'd have a diamond

So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right?

Be excellent to each other. And....PARTY ON, DUDES!!!

I remember having wings - not bangs. I wore parachute pants (for special occasions), several swatches, and leg warmers. I loved Depeche Mode and Rob Lowe. My friends and I would call the party line and chat it up with a bunch of strangers. Loved to play Centipede at the arcade. And loved to say "Sike"!

Seeing "Boogie Nights" puts "Jessie's Girl" in a new spectrum.
Like "Stuck in the Middle" after "Reservoir Dogs".
Both creepy but definitely memorable!

Most of the 80's I learned about in retrospect, but whatever else I forgot and had to re-learn, there was nothing better in my mind than breakdancing! I swear they need to bring that back.....

Just like Eddie Money said, "I Wanna Go Back And Do It All Over".... The 80s were the BEST years of my life.
The best music, hair,clothes and the" BEST OF TIMES" is what Styx had to say. I am the "The Lady Of The Eighties"
is what Loverboy said! Long Live The 80's Decade!!!!

I feel sorry for you youngins. The 70s were much more fun! I suppose that's a different thread though

As an outsider, I will truly say that the 70's does not appeal to me much. The music seems worse, disco is ridiculous, the ideology is far-fetched.....what's to love? Start a thread, I would love to know!

What were the 80's? I think I have a gap between 1969 and 2000.

I remembered something else I loved from the 80's.....the Karate Kid!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebIhzVlmGls&feature=related
The Cobra Kai are such poor sports! I was so going to make Elisabeth Shue my girlfriend when I grew up.

I remember I enrolled in Karate after seeing that movie. Made it to brown belt, and then saw my teacher have his nose broken in a no-contact fight with a kick to the face. I was young, and that scared me, I dropped out immediately! I was such a wuss.

There were a ton of good movies in the 80's, remember any??

I just loved the music and you didn't really have to know how to dance. I was definitely not into the whole disco thing in the 70's either. However there was some really great music in the 70's too. Did anyone see Resevoir Dogs, awesome plug for 70's music. The opening song is awesome. Tarantino always has great sound tracks in his movies, like in Pulp Fiction and True Romance.

I was in high school in the 70's ... but it was rural Indiana, so I didn't know about Disco until it was long gone ...


I love it NOW, though! WhooooHOOOOOOOOO!

Some of the goodest music ever made came from the 60's and 70's,much superior to the 80's. In large measure it was commentary on social change,and waking the populace to regard a new perspective(right or wrong) instead of apathetic acceptance.

Koota, I was in Evansville in the early 70s. Then in Bloomington. There was plenty of disco around. Where the heck were you?

50 miles from Bloomington. I didn't say that Disco didn't exist in Indiana. Just that it didn't exist in RURAL Indiana. At the time, I was not allowed to listen to rock and roll, because -- as we all know -- Rock & Roll is the music of the devil. I've since reformed my ways.

Sorry I missed it and you in Bloomington. We could have had a blast.
