    Re: The Best Thing About The 80's

    I chose atmosphere. Everything went into making the atmosphere but, I think back then, there was a more positive atmosphere. There seemed to be hope and an abundance of creativity in the air. The music was much more positive back then. I mean, most heavy metal in the 80's was about having a good time. And most New Wavers etc, even if they had a heavy political message, were getting it across and trying to inspire hope in people.

    Couldn't have said it better....

    Everything was so much more light-hearted. When you saw kids hanging out they were always laughing, music was always cranking. That whole godforsaken f*cking "angst" thing wasn't as prevalent.

    Kids went to clubs to see local bands...there was actually a club "scene". Each club had it's "regulars". You could go there any night on the weekend and it was packed, regardless of who was playing. Now unless there's a band they REALLY like, the clubs are like morgues on weekends.

    And the local bands!!!! My Goddess!!! In NY you had Twisted Sister and Anthrax for local acts, and in Cali it was ALL the hair bands!!! Man...it was amazing to have been priviledged enough to have lived through it.

    I voted Music but after reading this post I'd have to agree with Atmosphere. Maybe it was because I had little to no responsibility back then but things did seem much more positive in the 80's than it did in the 90's and today. The 90's brought out too much negativeness and anger in both music and television. And todays atmosphere is definitely guarded mostly in part to 9/11 and the events in the middle east.

    Talking Re: The Best Thing About The 80's

    I would have to say the fashion was. I think the models and fashion wear of the 80's were so much more fabulous than what is 'in style' today. The models these days look so plain and/or thin and boring, compared to the georgeous valuptuous models of the 80's (more than just skin and bones, they had pizazz and style, as well as curves). Even airline hostesses look plainer......The make up, the hair, the clothing, it has all gone down hill....I'm so glad that the 80's are slowly, but surely coming back into play. Smiles.

    The MUSIC! When you lock yourself up in your room to be alone, all you have is the phone and music. There's nothing like the music from the 80s to compare to todays.

    Re: The Best Thing About The 80's

    Has to be the atmosphere. Everything else is as a result of it. The 80s were a fun decade. We came out of the 70s with all the problems of "VeetNam", Watergate, hyperinflation, and the general malaise. The 80s were all about enjoying life again.

    The 90s were all about spoiled brats whining for the sake of whining.

    Re: The Best Thing About The 80's

    I went with other... all the things listed are a part of my 80s memories, but it is the fact that I was young, naive and innocent that made the music, movies, fashion and atmosphere what it was to me.

    Indeed the 80's were a fun decade for me as well. Riding and racing BMX, music, movies and just plain able to be a kid with little worries. Half the decade I was still a kid and the other half a young adult.

    Re: The Best Thing About The 80's

    I picked the music, the 80's was a time when different styles of music came in to play, punk rock, new wave, hair bands/ glamour rock, heavy metal, and pop just to name a few. This virtual 80's melting pot helped to mold the 80's decade into what it is today.
