Let's talk about the 80s

The Smurfs - When I think about the 80s, I think about watching the smurfs on television.

When I think of the 80's, I think of bad hair, and scrunch socks. The 80's did have some great music come out of it.

80's ROCK!!! - 80s are the best year thus far!
Ohhh, the 80's what a wonderful time. Even though I was only born in 83. Elf (he was from the 80s right), Hairspray, beehive, big hair, Grease, Yo MTV Raps (pretty sure that was 80s), New Kids on the Block (Woot woot!), leggings, smoking commercials, you name it! Oh, fish net!!! sweaters around the neck and the 7up commercial that goes (hey buffey). Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Big hoop earings. Gotta love it!

This was one of the best times of my life I think. Even though we look back at the fashion and hair and think it was dreadful!! We all got into the leg warmers, big fluffy hair or mullet cuts, puffy skirts, lots of belts and bangles and thought we looked gorgeous. Even most of the music wasn't too bad, otherwise why would they be making so many remakes of the same songs. ha.

Pop Music, brilliant groups like Duran Duran, Fleetwood Mac and Level42. Atari, yeah I loved playing with my Atari. The early James Bond films and The A Team!
