The 80’s- The era I wish I was a part of

The 80’s. Everytime I hear these words, it brings up a feeling I can't quite describe. The fashion, the films, the music, everything just seems so glorious.

The fashion. The brave vibe of polka-dot dresses and loud, bright colours plus the animal print leggings and vibrant tracksuits have made history. The permed hair, glitter eyeshadow, and bright head and wrist bands with the flashy shirts and running shorts were so eccentric. Brooke Shields, Jane Fonda, were utterly astounding fashion icons. Madonna, Boy George, MC Hammer, famous musicians also walked to fame in terms of fashion.

Imagine casually watching ‘Back To The Future’, ‘Mr. India’, ‘ Die Hard’, ‘ Maine Pyar Kiya’, ‘E.T.’, ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ ,‘The Breakfast Club’ without knowing what absolute blockbuster hits and life-changing films they would be. Tom Cruise, Madhuri Dixit, Molly Ringwald, Anil Kapoor, Rob Lowe, Juhi Chawla, Amitabh Bachchan, Harrison Ford, Ally Sheedy were prodigious actors and actresses.

The music of the 80’s was probably one of the most insanely wonderful parts of this era. Queen, Guns N Roses, Madonna, Boy George, Bryan Adams, MC Hammer, George Michael, Bon Jovi, U2, Kate Bush, The Smiths, Michael Jackson, Lata Mangeshkar, AC/DC, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Prince, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Billy Joel, Blondie, Whitney Houston, and so many more I could go on and on about.

Full House; Married ... .With Children; Family Ties; That 80’s Show; The Simpsons; The Golden Girls; Murder, She Wrote; ALF are some of the most hilarious and legendary shows of the 80’s.

I love the current lifestyle, culture, and music, fashion and film industries. But the 80’s will always be a different kind of way to live and I don't think it could ever be replaced.
