80's retro nostalgia

1980’s Rewind

Sometimes I get a little nostalgic for the 1980s?  . . .  that era of early video games, MTV, and The Breakfast Club. After catching an episode of Full House on Nick at Nite, I put down my Rubik’s cube, grabbed a can of TAB,  and did a little retro surfing. Join me as I step back in time: watch some commercials, listen to some tunes, play a cool game, or catch up on trivia. Hope it brings back some fun memories for you.

    Thanks for a great trip down memory lane! It is amazing how much has changed since then. Some things have changed for the better but I know a lot has changed for the worse. At least can keep the good stuff inside of us!

    I can remember watching everyone of those movies as if it was yesterday!

  6. Every single one of those movies is an all time classic.

    Most of which have already been, or in the process of being made into a modern day version.

    Star Wars, Indy, Top Gun, Ghostbusters, Batman

  7. Loved them all and watched them all except 60 minutes.

    #1 for me ET in 1982

    We were horribly spoiled in the movie department, weren’t we?

    Damn right The Cosby Show took the top spot for four years! That show was amazing! But it’s interesting that Roseanne took the top honor the following year… perhaps America was ready for a change?
