for music! From , pop, techno, to rock....put on the 80's on satellite radio and sit back and enjoy the ride! Mtv played videos, we would VCR a premier video, watch the top 20 count down, didn't mind if the neighbors cranked it caused it rocked!
Let's face it, most of those...
"Yuck, that's SO 80s..."
I shrugged and plucked the guitar from his ungrateful hands.
The 80s was a thing, man; A beautiful, messed-up thing. And there's nothing like the music that came from the 80s.
The stars, the costumes, the glam, the production debate whether to...
period in my life, I was just entering my teens and the onset of puberty. The music of the decade was more like an anthem for my life during that time and when I listen to it today I am able to relive those awkward and special moments that were called my teenage years. It still...

and melt together.....
A message for everyone, "Don't Change"...beleive in yourself...be true to yourself.
The 80's...nothing but bands performing on camera, being able to see what your favorite band looked like. Nothing fancy, just ....well......Music!
This is one of my favourite's of theirs. Great cover for the original Simon and Garfunkel song from the 60s.

I missed 'em. Damn. But at least the music is still around. And honestly? The best music happened in the '80s.
We had hard rock, metal ... all the best stuff, really.
Of course, we also had Rick Astley.
But apart from him, we had Queen, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and plenty more...
without seeing Labyrinth. With all of the Bowie tributes happening lately I finally forced myself to watch it for the first time last night... and I cannot believe I have missed out on this all these years! How is Bowie so creepy yet irresistible...so glittery yet so...desirable...
films. I think they are better now than they were in the 1980s: it was before digital film, so time has degraded the film/audio quality. It gives the music a displaced and (in drama and horror especially) a slightly sinister feel, over and above the music itself.
every Friday night during my childhood. Its so sad to me that roller skating died out :(
In any case, I created an awesome spotify playlist with all the songs that whisk me back to that wonderful time. Wouldn't trade those memories for anything in the world!
