Aw yes the eighties. Good times, Hair Bands, RATT, Poison, Cinderella, Great White, Skid Row, Motley Crue, White Snake. The Royal Wedding of Prince
Charles & Diana. Michael Jackson, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, Pink Floyd The Wall Album, RUSH, AC/DC " Back In Black, U2 & REM. Remember
who shot J.R.? The Dukes Of Hazard, Three's Company, Magnum PI, One Day At A Time, Family Ties etc...
Friday The 13th, Mad Max, The Empire Strikes Back and other good movies like Raging Bull, Cheeks & Chong "Still Smokin", The Terminator, Footloose,
Back To The Future etc... The Rubik's Cube, Sony Walkman and Boom boxes. Walter Payton, Pete Rose, Mike Tyson in his Prime, Michael Jordon. I still
remember looking through my telescope and seeing Haley's Comet, that was cool. I remember wearing my Ray Ban sunglasses carrying my boom box and
watching Break dancers down at the park.
The Games, Donkey Kong, Ms Pac-Man, Asteroids, Defender and my all time favorite Galaga. Spent so many quarters down at the arcade that I could of
bought that Black Trans Am with the Fire Bird on the hood. Yes the eighties were good times but I do remember the bad too.
John Lennon was shot and killed, R.I.P. John, wars and terrorist attacks were going on and innocent lives were killed. The Challenger explodes and
kill the seven crew members, may they R.I.P. The deadly disease of AIDS. President Reagan being shot. Big tanker oil spills and all the other things
like murders, drugs etc... But all in all the 80's were cool and crazy.
