2) The BEST cartoons ever (TODAY THERE IS NOTHING BUT GARBAGE ON TV)

I loved the 80's.  Great music, annoying cellphones weren't ringing constantly when you went somewhere in public, I was in my teens then & loved the classic arcade games -- jukeboxes were still everywhere (where I lived), 10 songs for a buck -- on "records" LOL
I wouldn't be a "cdnut" if it weren't for the invention of the digital disk, but still love the way music sounds on an
album or 45...

Went to an all 80's themed bar for a New Year's Eve party.  It was a blast! So many people were into it -- the music, the hair -- I even got the Parachute Pants out for the occasion LOL -- was one of about 25-30 others that did the same thing. I forgot you freeze your
--- off in them in the wintertime, though  

As said at the start of this topic, it was a much simpler time--alot of fun, & enjoyed living it all over again (New Year's Eve)

I love the patriotism and prosperity of the 80's!

"Living in America" wasn't just a kikk azz song, it was a living dream of hope and opportunity. AMERICA WAS BACK, and you could feel it!

This is not really on topic other than to really ask a question and kinda rant about the horrible quality of the kids and parenting today. Kids today are horrible. I would have never gotten away with anything like what they get away with when I was a child. I am not entirely sure where to lay the blame. I can't really say too much due to the fact that my life partner and I do not have any kids. I was a child of the 80's. I can remember when we looked forward to getting up early and watching cartoons on Saturday Morning. I can also remember my huge college of garbage pail kids. Ah... nostalgic thoughts. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone remembered the popcorn that when you popped it, it came out different colors everytime and you never knew what color it was going to be. I don't remember the name.

Yeah i was born in 1987. I wish that i was living in this wonderful decade. It sounds like a great decade. When the country (America) loved itself. And no hate, and good tv shows that teaches you about life and lessons, kids were kids, and children played outside more, and it was safe to go outside. Instead of today's, crap on t.v to many reality shows and tv shows about nothing, children grow up so fast and i must say are spoiled and are brats, and the hate in our society today, and anyone can say anything on tv and view anything and we have the terrorist war today.

Remember riding through town, parking at one end, and then the other? We would all meet up somewhere, have a big party out in a field somewhere. Everything was about rock and roll, who's hot and who's not. lol. The concerts, they were the best. I gratuated in 86. My son listens to rap, it makes me wanna tear something up.



I feel your pain. I am one of the few teenagers (just - I'm 19) who listens to good music and thinks that it is blasphemy to call modern music "music". My favourite band is Guns N' Roses. I love guys with long and/or big hair, musicians with TALENT, and neon clothing. I was meant to be born 15 years earlier, 1965 or so! Living now makes me kinda sad. We have so much crap that we don't need, and kids grow up too fast. What's wrong with having a childhood where you know who Pacman is??

blocked o.. Okay, so I don't speak English, but I just had to come and write something. Because I love the 80's. But, I'm 15 now, so I never lived in the 80's. (in case someone's actually reading this, i have to say i'm from europe and i've studied english only for something like 5 years, so please don't mind the mistakes :D)

This is so strange, I don't think I should be here as a teen ager, in 2008 I mean. My friends don't like the 80's, they say people wore ugly clothes and their hair were--- I don't even want to remember what they said. And I completely disagree! I love the way people wore clothes. I love the movies from 70, 80 and 90's. I always become frustrated when even my sister talks disrespectly (i have no idea if i wrote that correctly!) about them.

By the way, I love Pack Man. I used to play that a lot when I was a kid. There are so many thing on my mind that I'd like to write, but I don't know how!

I could spend hours of listening someone, who lived in the80's, telling me what it was like. For example my parents, or teachers or something. Once one of my teachers showed us a picture of her and her all class mates (I don't know which year it was taken, but maybe 70's) and guess what! my class mates (well most of them) faked smiles and said to the teacher it was a nice pisture, but after the class they said how boring the lesson was!

honestly, I was mad. I didn't said it to them, but i'm sill mad even though it's been a year now. I would have loved to hear about my teacher's stories of the time when she was a kid. but no, everyone wanted to go to the break because the lesson was over. i really, really wanted to hear her speaking.

When I read the posts on this topic, i regretted i never even talked disrespectly (again that word! i just came up with nothing else) to my teachers. well i don't anymore, but a few years ago. and now I really am ashamed when i even look at them. maybe it was normal for a young teenager (13 years old or near that) to behave like that, but I should have known better.

This is getting pretty long, but i have to say i love the old music from the 60's, 70's and especially 80's. My parents gave me their old vinyls, including Earth wind and fire, Kool & the Gang, David Bovie etc. And i love them. I've got a player that plays the vinyls. I will never, never give or sell it to anyone. Okay maybe I should stop writing. There are still so many thing to say, but maybe i'll write later :D

Since the 80s sucked, musicwise (with just a few stellar exceptions), I entirely understand how you might have lived the entire decade firmly in denial, the wonderful sounds of the 60s blasting from your headphones, drowning out the pathetic mewlings of Rick Springfield.
