    Watching Spectacle with Elvis Costello and his guests are The Police. Hearing Sting and Elvis sing Allison gave me massive chills. I love the 80s smile

      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.  lol  (I do have an Mp3 player and a collection of Mp3's on my PC - but the Walkman plays my favorite cassette tapes.  lol  )  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.

    Early 80's. Left college due to lack of money. Moved to Houston Tx. Got a job as a waitress. Was recently over twenty one. And I partied on!

    Disco was still sorta in. I had a decent body. Had my first perm and looked cool. And the twins... They looked like Rex Smith.


    *beating head on desk* I used to be so cool.....

    You children have no idea how cool the 80's were.

      You are too funny!  I was 18 in 1980, so I loved the early 80's music & some of the disco.  Back when we were cool - but we are COOL MOM's now big_smile

    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.

    I love all music but rap.  Did then and do now.  The late 80's I was just a teen.  I listened to everything back then.  But the hair bands were the biggest thing then.  I loved them all.

    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
