If you lived thru the 80's, at least one of these holds a memory for you

I remember all but maybe 5 or 6.  Man, I was already a dad by 1980, and this is vintage music.  Where have the years gone!

That brings back alot of memories, I was a teenager in the 80's, grad in 1987.

 

I have to admit, Autograph's "Turn up the Radio" is one of my all time favorite songs.

I liked the all girl band  Vixen too! 

Then, I was big hiar all the way!! 

 

 

I would say Mickey, Jenny or Whip it are the top three most famous  hit wonders. 

 

Need to find the big hair band  hit wonders, those were some crazy videos!

There was certainly a lot of frantic motion.  I didn't have a lot of MTV access, but I heard those songs over and over, great memories.

That was a great time in life! I would have to say all the music and MTV were a big part of my teen years. 1984 graduate. Thanks for posting! :thumbs:  :thumbs:

Awful decade for radio music. I remember being in a bar with a juke box. One quarter one song. I put in four and put the Whip It on four times. Needless to say, when it started to play the third time someone went over and pulled the plug. It was funny.

I must have worked through that decade because I might have heard one of them but not real sure about that one.  I also had switched to what would now be called classic country and talk radio by then too.

You got a decade on me there Roger!  

 

I graduated @ the end of the 70s so these songs were normal listening fare in my 20's and I have to admit I have 85% of them on my H/D as we speak..  I missed the Pac Man fever one SOMEHOW!?!  We have a guy @ work and he is always yappin on or about this or that incessantly so one of our co-workers thus dubbed him-  yup-    You guessed it!  PAC MAN!!

 

I'm sending the video to his boss as I write here!  LMAOROTF!!   :D  :bigrofl:   :bigrofl:   :bigrofl:   :bigrofl:   :bigrofl:

 

Thanks MH!!

When the Free Bird crashed, most good rock was going down too. I'm a Boston, Skynyrd, Seger, ZZ Top, .38 Special, Marshall Tucker, etc... and don't forget the man, Jimmy Buffett, kind of guy.
