Why the 80s was the Best Decade

Big hair, heavy makeup… shoulder pads. The 80’s were definitely a time to be remembered and sometimes being unable to forget can be a bad thing.

Here are the reasons it was the best decade

The movies
The Goonies, Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid… the list goes on and on.

The music
According to Next Stop Magazine, “MTV hit the airwaves on August 1st 1981 and changed the face of music forever. Granted, the station has become nothing more than a place to watch some of the most awful people ever do things nobody should ever care about, but in the ’80s it was epic. Not only was the music awesome and completely identifiable to the decade, but the musicians were iconic.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

The people
The people that dominated this decade are a force to be reckoned with. Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy, Hulk Hogan, Madonna, Michael Jackson,and so many others made this decade so memorable.

And, here is why it is the worst. You might see some replicants on this list, and that is for good reason.

Home decor
The horrible wall paper, puffy leather couches, all glass dining tables with funky black chairs, the list can go on and on. If you have bought a house built or remodeled in the 80’s, chances are you have seen one if not all of the above during your house search and renovation. Dusty pastels and track lighting are all too familiar in this decade.

Just as the music was amazing, it was just as disturbing. The electronic beats were always borderline head pounding and romantic at the same time. It just depends what side of the fence you are on.

Shoulder pads. Lots of them.

Whether you are a child of the 80’s or just someone who was in love with it, the truth is, if we are still talking about it, then it’s definitely worth mentioning. We all still workout to the smooth sounds of Guns N’ Roses, BIlly Idol and Madonna and understand more about what that decade is all about. Some styles have come back and others (thankfully) have not. Either way, there is no denying what an impressive time it was.
