Ahhh you're still cool! I love the 80's too! I just think the songs back then had more of a meaningful direction. The love songs seemed more genuine. Today's stuff....ugh.....is all homogenized and people don't even make a pretense at being honest, which I guess is a step up, or is it? Anyway, the 80's rock!
I still use my Sony Walkman. (I do have an Mp3 player and a collection of Mp3's on my PC - but the Walkman plays my favorite cassette tapes. ) I like 80's music, but I wasn't all that cool in the 80's. I had three little kids in the 80's.
If your ever in an 80's music mode go hang out with pandora.com you will discover old classics you forgot about. Pandora is a personalized radio station playing only music you like. try it out. I have discovered how much i like fleetwood mac, laura brannigan, and many similar artists.
my oldest is 20- and I have her hooked on the "old" 80's music- I guess every generation remembers the music of their youth fondly- my mom loved Elvis- and the Beach boys- and sees herself as hip when she listens to that music- she recently retired
I was cool until about 1983 and then became a cop then lost all coolness, but every once in a while I would drive through neighborhoods at 2 in the AM blaring AC/DC over my cop car loud speaker! I was cool again
Is nice hearing my kids say,'Mom, even my friends say you're cool' but we definitely a different person today than back then n I still try keep my 'shaggy' hair do O..n Queen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen ...today, Linkin Park, One Republic, Tiamet, Nightwish, jus a few.
