I think it’s easy to look back on the past and romanticise it. Forget all the bad parts and remember the good. The worlds is forever changing with technology, it’s inevitable.
But to answer your question, I really loved the music. And the very loud and out there fashion. Being back colour!
The 80’s were great if you were a kid, not so great if you were a woman.
But i kinda get your point, i dont know if id romanticise the 80’s but i miss the simplicity, technology has wrecked us, and where are the men these days?!
I don’t miss it. Equality for women was nonexistent and as a young girl turning into a woman I didn’t feel safe.
Omg I miss the 80' sooooooo much. The best part was the music.
I was still only young in the 80s, but in the 90s I was a teenager and remember sitting at the payphone for hours calling friends or boyfriend for 40cents! It seems so weird to think that people could not get a hold of you so easily, yet I feel like I was safe most of the time. You didn't text people, you just showed up at their houses if they were in, if not too bad! I still had a phone with one of those curly cords at home, so I couldn't Walk around the place doing stuff while on The phone!
I just see my teenagers texting all the time and I can call them whenever to see what their are doing, and it's great but it's just so different to when I was younger and it's not even THAT long ago really
Well negative nancy you ruined this perfectly fun post. Lady you aren't the vegan woman taking her neighbours to court for having bbqs & letting their children play basketball are you?
There seems to have been something deliciously toxic about men in the 80s. Like they played football and were macho and almost exclusively bogan.
I miss being able to buy quality, made in australia things that lasted. This was killed by john howard with free trade agreements, although it would have happened anyway with globalisation. But now adays nothing you buy lasts and its so much plastic waste and wasted time spent replacing things.
Movies were better. Shitty special effects but they had more soul.
I wish I got to live in the 80s, but I think all the bad stuff was there, it just wasn't published like it is today.
I don't think the 80's were much different for women in the 80's? I mean, I was only a kid but I'm pretty sure as far as rights and everything, that was mostly sorted by the 80's. The only group that were disadvantaged were probably working mothers of young children with the lack of care facilities but a lot of grandparents were available to babysit back then, and kids were expected to look after themselves by school age. I was left home alone with my 7 year old sister when I was 5 and Mum went back to work.
I want to party like it's 1989
Its 1989 DOES MAKE SENSE COZ WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE 80’s
If I say I want to party like it's 1989 I mean with 80's music & crazy 80's clothes. I know the Prince song fool but that isn't what I meant. Sit down trouble maker.
People were more easy going. Adult me & the 80's would have been a match made in heaven
I didn't know it at the time but I miss eighties education. When there was a huge focus on literacy in primary school, there wasn't any added programs or anything, it was just work. Education has dropped since then and I think it's because we have tried to cram too much into the day, primary school is like high school.
