I was a teen of the 1980’s, a time of questionable fashion and great music. Here’s my best of…
1. The Facts of Life
I loved this show!
2. the birth of MTV
Back when it was still music! Yo! MTV Raps, Headbangers Ball, The very first video aired
3. SWATCH watches
They weren’t so expensive back then!
4. The Sony Walkman
I had this one!
5. Michael Jackson’s Thriller video
Regardless of your feelings on Michael Jackson, this video was iconic in the time.
6. mix tapes
I made and got TONS of them. And mine were always done on these cassettes!
7. Top Gun
Just about every guy of a certain age has used some form of “Maverick” as a nickname because of this movie, including my husband!
8. The Chicago Bears and The Super Bowl Shuffle
Bad and iconic at the same time!
9. Tawny Kitaen and Whitesnake
Another iconic 80s video…
10. When Team USA beat Team USSR for gold in the 1980 Winter Olympics
I was at this game, and it was AMAZING! One of the most exciting moments of my young life!
11. boom boxes
I had one that had a double cassette deck so I made my mixes on it!
12. Dirty Dancing
No one puts Baby in the corner…
I had a pink one and a lavender one!
