I love the 80s!

My 40th birthday is coming up, and it's making me relive some of (the cool parts) of my youth. Specifically, I'm reminiscing about television, movies and music from the 1980s.

Do you have favorite things you remember from that decade? Toys, games, technology, music, television shows, movies, clothing styles, etc. are all fair game.


  1. Found a music list at and it's a GREAT start. Below I've added some "needed" artists not represented on the list.

    NEEDED: Bon Jovi, Poison, Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Judas Priest, Whitesnake, White Lion, 4 Non Blondes, Thompson Twins, Roxette, Huey Lewis, Alice Cooper, AC/DC, Duran Duran, Firehouse...

  2. For me the thing about the 80's that "sticks" is fashion - big hair with lots of product, huge shoulder pads, and fuschia legwarmers. I dug the music too - Thomas Dolby, The Cars and Tears for Fears were standouts for me.


If you can't say something nice...
