We're having quite a few gang-related shootings in our city lately - I so wish they could just "break dance" fight instead. :-)

My boyfriend and I are obsessed with so-bad-they're-good 80s and early 90s movies/videos, so I've got some good ones stored up! Just you wait until tomorrow!! lol.

I think we should also all just name one thing we miss/love about the 80s.

today mine is - the freedom to wear WHATEVER you wanted and have it be accepted - today's fashion is so rigid!

LMAO. I work out to this song.

Everytime I watch it though, it reminds me of an episode of Beavis and Butthead...they were commenting on the video (and acting stupid, of course).

There are a lot of 80s songs covered by very different bands now. My nieces and nephews are usually completely unaware that it's a cover.

Then there's the current cover (or partial use) of "You Spin Me Round," which just disturbs me.

Have you heard the remake of Africa (Toto) done by Karl Wolf? Not bad (the musical remake, not the video :D).

OK, Carol, I couldn't listen to more than 20 seconds of that! :lol: Then again, I never loved the song back then!

:lol: I LOVED Safety Dance! Until they overplayed it...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lOoId21B1Q

my thoughts on that video:
1) He looks really cute dancing around in that black top and beige shorts

2) I would like the body of the girl in the yellow bikini dancing around the fire please

3) not a bad remake of the song, however, he's got a lot of b*lls to do that considering I've never heard of him before!!!

Another thing I miss about the 80s = my "Madonna" outfit. I had a great outfit: a red off-the-shoulder top, black tight tap pants, black sandals that tied all the way up my leg, tons of black jelly bracelets and a black scarf tied in my hair. Good times.

nothing says 80's better than limahl. Bad dancing, spiked hair, stonewashed flood jeans and rolled up sleeves. Plus a catchy 80's beat.

Not the best pic but check out my hair back then: http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n267/jhusull/suz_pics/dadmasuzma50thbday.jpg

I just LOVED the 80s!! VH1 recently had the One-Hit Wonders of the 80s on...cranked up the TV and had a great time. I miss those days. :)

Thanks everyone for posting the videos!

Can you imagine them discussing the concept of that video?
"Ok so, imagine this - you are standing on a stage of squares of light with smoking curling seductively around your legs"

"Right, right....am I dancing?"

"Well, not so much dancing, as moving your body to the beat in a very slow exaggerated manner."

"Right, right, love it, love it.....and then what happens?"

"Well....nothing! For three whole minutes...nothing!"

"I love it! I'm in!"

Pales in comparison to some of the stuff I see marketed for children today.

I remember when cabbage patch kids were hard to get. And people were paying big bucks for them. My mom went nuts trying to get my sis and I the cornsilk hair cabbage patch kids. I still have mine. I also have my pound puppy and my cry baby doll which still works.

OMG the 80s so fondly remembered, MTV on a sat while mom and dad worked , calling friends up to talk about the videos , watching Michael Jackson rule the videos and radio, playing the Atari,listening to Kasey Kasems top forty , Ronald Regan, Star Wars, etc why can't things be like they were then.

I've been watching all of the videos posted. I am an 80's Kid and proud of it!!! You know, it's kinda scary when you remember when MTV started and was extremely excited and that your parents were too lame to understand it all. :lol: By the way, I am in LOVE with George Michael all over again! And yes, I just cried watching One More Try.
