Like, Totally Awesome! The '80s Ring

Untitled document

If the popular culture (everything from dolls and toys to TV live-action shows, cartoons and even commercials, from music to politics, from cars to cultural icons) of the 1980s enthralls you, you'll want to visit the sites in this ring!  Pictured on this page:  the original cast of Hill Street Blues, a 1981 summer replacement that became the forerunner of every realistic show we've got in the 21st century!  On the NavBar:  detail from EP (cassette in this case) cover for Chronic Town, the first release by the now iconic musical group R.E.M.

'80s Summer Memories - 08/20/2013
As we reach mid-August, it brought to mind some memories of '80s summers. Check out this California Cooler commercial from 1986, which featured the '60s surfer classic "Louie Louie."  The culture of the '80s had a great way of appropriating nostalgia of times past, and re-creating it in the '80s in a fun filled and often zany way. This commercial, for example, invokes this imagery of some far away, perhaps past, moment in time when people got together, sang wacky songs, and hung around the beach. It could well have been the surfin' '60s, but the commercial appropriates it for the '80s and leaves you with a very-80s spirit of fun and excitement . And here's Bananarama, with their very summery hit, "Cruel Summer." The lyrics invoke the heat of the season.
