Monday Listicles: Ten Things Totally 80’s

This week’s topic is from a suggestion by Kate.  She suggested 10 Things Totally 80’s, 10 Tweets, or 10 Crushes.  I went back and forth, trying to decide which one to choose… so, I am going with Ten Things Totally 80’s.  Here we go…

  1. Magnum P.I.– I guess that could for either direction– totally 80’s or crushes.  Mmmmm.
  2. Underoos– Mine were Wonder Woman.
  3. Rubik’s Cubes– I took the stickers off of mine and put them back on right.  Big surprised there.
  4. Acid-washed jeans, mini skirts and leggings– What were we thinking?  On second thought, what was my parents thinking letting me dress that way?!
  5. MTV-  Enough said.  Video Killed the Radio Star.
  6. 16 Candles- Best teen angst movie ever.
  7. 95 cent gas
  8. TV Shows– The Golden Girls, Growing Pains, Knight Rider, Dukes of Hazzard, and The A Team.
  9. The Cola Wars– Coca-Cola versus New Coke
  10. The question of the 80’s— Where’s the beef?



  1. Awesome list! I had the Magnum P.I. theme song on a 45. Haha! Acid-washed jeans — whose idea was that? And we all wore them!

  2. Ha! I did the same with my Rubik’s cube! Stupid game. Where’s the beef? One awesome commercial series I had completely forgotten about.
    I’m loving these 80s lists! So fun.

  3. New Coke was so gross! 😛

    Loved your list. 🙂

  4. I love Video Killed The Radio Star too. Sixteen Candles is an all-time classic!

  5. I found a pair of acid wash jeans when I moved. I burned them 😀

  6. Knight Rider… Man I loved that show and only Irishman and I laugh when someone says “where’s the beef?!”

  7. I had these dark blue, acid washed ones… that were pleated at the waist… and of course, I wore them pegged.

    Holy crap. LOL.


  8. I am getting a hankering to watch the movie after all these 80’s posts…


  9. I dunno. It cracks me up when I see pictures of myself back then. That my parents actually let me leave the house!


  10. I know! I get disappointed when I visit the other blogs and they DON’T have an 80’s list. LOL.

  11. Mom, what does that make YOU?

  12. Great list! I love that you admitted to peeling the stickers off of your Cube. Didn’t we all do that? Really? Don’t lie!
    The 95 cent gas! Remember that you could also buy LEADED gas?


  13. I dreamed of acid jeans so badly. Happy 2013!
