I was a child of the 1980’s. I lived through the whole decade. It was a great time to be a kid. As I’m sure every generation will say the decade they grew up in was a great time to be a kid. lol.
Lot of big hair, neon colors and the beginning a mainstream electronic pop music. As well as the beginning of the Nintendo generation, for which I am a part of.
I just think it’s interesting to see all this retro 80’s stuff lately. I remember in the mid 90’s how everyone looked at the 80’s with such distaste. Everyone made fun of the 80’s while embracing the 70’s. Seems like everything skips a decade.
That said, I better get out my combat boots, flannel shirts and grunge/industrial music because I’m sure the retro 90’s stuff isn’t too many years away. :)
