Remember the 80's?


 25 things that make me remember the 80's.

1.  "Celebration" was a new song that was so cool, by Kool & the Gang.

2.  "I pity the fool."  Mr. T was da bomb.

3.  Leg warmers and headbands.

4.  Atari, Commodore 64, and Intellivision.

5.  Remington Steel was totally a stud and not James Bond.

6.  School House Rock really did rock.

7.  "Where's the beef?"  At Wendy's of course.

8.  "The Day After" freaked me out.

9.  "E.T" loved Reece's Pieces.

10.  MacGyver could make anything with of his swiss army knife and a roll of something or other.

11.  You know exactly who was in the "Brat Pack."

12.  You know the theme song to "Inspector Gadget."

13.  You miss your "Swatch watch" and the "Swatch Guard" for that watch in day-glow colors.

14.  You want to be "gagged with a spoon."

15.  You had a crush on one of the Corey's. Haim and/or Feldman.

16.  MTV had videos, and not crazy kids doing crazy stuff.

17.  You wanted so badly to go "Back to the Future" and kick Biff's ass.

18.  You tried to "moonwalk" but looked like an idiot.

19.  You had a Rubik's cube and could only solve it after taking it apart or taking the stickers off.

20.  You wanted to "physche" people out.

21.  You wanted to wear "Jordache" jeans.

22.  You remember OMD, Depeche Mode, and A Flock of Seagulls.

23.  The cellphone was a brick and only super rich people had them.

24.  You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have "the facts of life."

25.  Crockett and Tubbs inspired you to walk around in linen pants and loafers with no socks because they were just too cool.


I hope you enjoyed traveling back to the 80's with me.

If none of this list makes any sense to you, I feel sorry for you because that means you missed a great era.

I kept this list to 25 items, but if you can remember anything else that is essential 80's, please comment below and let's remember the good times together.
