Remembering the 80's..


Thanks to tule33 and his post on remembering the 70's..it inspired me to post my own on the 80's. Brought back alot of memories for me, some of the best times of my life.

Remember when....

You actually had to get up to change the TV channel, or turn up the sound because there wasnt a remote control?

You could go into a video store and pick a movie in Beta or VHS.

You had to listen to your favorite tunes via records (45's..I still have mine!) or cassette.

Break dancing and dirty dancing (dirty dancing ruled).

Rubiks cube (that damn thing frustrated the hell out of me lol)

Garbage pail kids

Cabbage patch dolls (remember when they first came out they were like $200 and hard as hell to find?)

Long hair and leather jackets

Smoking blocks at school (god those were the days)

Texas Insturments Computers (the things you could make that thing do on your TV!)

Not having to be home until the street lights came on.

Cartoons were on from 6am-noon every Saturday.

Wearing leg warmers to school was the 'in' thing.

Flourescent colors (man were they horrendous or what?)

I'm sure there are many, many more if you'd like feel free to add your own 80's memories.

julie4daddy34 - I am so glad you did this post. I loved the 80's.

These are the things I remember.... My black punk boots, large colored laces, BIG earrings to go with your BIG hair (don't forget the moose) , tight pants, Flashdance the movie , but the best thing about the 80's is the MUSIC. From Madonna to Def Lepard.
