    One of the most under-rated songs of the 80's, unheard of by most of you because about two weeks after it was released as a single, Blondie released another single that you might have heard of: "Call Me".

    Blondie - The Hardest Part

    Cool vid, huh??

    I only learned this feature recently. I've seen others do it for...well, probably years... I figured I should try to figure out how they did it. It had to be one of the two links you see when clicking on the globe... And it ends up being the HIGHLIGHTED one... D'oh!!

    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    If this thread goes on much longer, iTunes is gonna love me!

    I have tons of 80s music already, but there are some here that I'd forgotten about. Keep 'em coming, and help me spend money!
    Voidy Swan, Dirty Carmen, Perverted Moonlight Sonata. God I love figure skating!

What were we thinking?
    The music was the best!!!! The clothes were, um, well, ok. You have a point there.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    You most certainly will not know the artist, but the song will surely take you back.

    Agreed on both counts.

    Did anyone ever use Joico Ice Mist hairspray in the 80s? Man, I swear that stuff was made from the same ingredients as Krazy Glue! Your hair was NOT moving until you washed it out.

    [80s trivia nerd] Did you know they wrote "How Will I Know" and "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" for Whitney Houston? They also presented this song to her, but she turned it down. [/80s trivia nerd]

    I used Matrix Sup-R Freez. A tornado could by, and your hair wasn't moving.

    My kids were little during the 80's; I missed a lot of the music and movies, but there were some great TV shows. Some of my favorites:

    Cheers, Newhart, Golden Girls, LA Law, Murphy Brown, Night Court, Spenser for Hire, Poirot, St. Elsewhere, Wiseguy, Wonder Years, The Cosby Show, Designing Women, and two amazing miniseries, Brideshead Revisited and Lonesome Dove.

    I don't watch nearly so much TV these days, and hardly any network series.

    I voted in my first presidential election, turned 21, graduated from college and moved into my first apartment during the 1980s so I have special affection for the decade. While the fashions may have been questionable a lot of the decade's pop culture will stand the test of time, imo. "Dallas" and "Knots Landing" were on TV. "Brideshead Revisited" the mini-series for the more highbrow TV viewer. Some wonderful pop songs like "Billie Jean" by MIchael Jackson and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen. It was a wonderful time to be a young adult, imo.

    I agree. I don't know if my perception is colored by the fact that I was young (16 in 1980), but my son is 15 now and it seems like the teen culture was much more optimistic and innocent then than it is now.
