Proof The 80's Was Crap

Recommended Posts

New Romantics, Power Ballads, Leg Warmers, and Saxaphone players appearing in every other music video. Just some of the many gazillion billion trillion reasons why the 80's was so dire.

 

If you're a fan though. Live through some nostalgia with this 1985 argos catalogue which has been scanned and available to flick through on Flickr. I was still a pup then, so the toy section induced some memories I'd forgotten about. Everything else though, just seems so primitive.

There is quite a bit I remember in there...... The Hungry Hippo game, still remember the adverts! Some are still going strong, Mr Frosty and Care Bears are actually on sale in Target right now.....


And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive at where we started, and know the place for the first time.

Ah the cabbage patch dolls I remember my mother trying to get this for my sister when it first came out they were like gold dust. Looking back on the fashion it was like we got dressed in the dark:laugh: but of course we all thought we were only massive.

Great music from the 80's though so not all bad:wink:

I'm usually much more nostalgic about the 60's & 70's but some of my favourite bands are from the 80's - 'Altered Images', 'Echo & The Bunnymen', 'OMD', 'Men At Work', - and one of my absolute, all time favourite songs - 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' - 'Joy Division.
