The 80s Are Behind The Wheel



Video via You Tube

I recently very much fancy the glam 80s with their music, movies, music videos and of course fashion styles. Some music videos from that time remind short movies - many of them actually tell a story and they are much less explicit, compared to those we watch today...This Depeche Mode video is a great example, I think.

Some more things I love from the 80s: bold colours, pixel creatures from 'space invader' game, acid-washed jeans and denim jackets, straight 'boxy' cars, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Gostbusters, Rubik's cubes, off-the-shoulder tops, Back To The Future, big earrings, enormous shoulder pads (...headbands, leggings, leg warmers...) and big hair styles!

Born in 1970, the 80's were my teenage years. Big hair, blue eyeshadow with purple eyeliner and lots of hairspray is what I remember the most. The music was fantastic and so great to dance to.....especially Depeche Mode. Thanks for the flash of the past Olga.

yup its kind of an 80s revival these days [the movie control & all].

funny, cos when i was teen there was a 70s revival [the movie doors & all], the 80s were too close to be seen as cool.
