The 80's Tag


I came across this tag on Brin's Book Blog and although I was born in the '80s and can't really remember actually living in that decade this still sounded like a lot of fun.  Since I'm not sure who else has done this tag, if you would like to participate, consider yourself tagged.  Without further ado:

Favorite 80's movie:



Back to the Future - I love this movie (the entire series, really!) and I've watched it more times than I can count!  This is probably what got me interested in time travel.

Favorite 80's cartoon:


When I was younger, I loved watching the animated Beetlejuice series.  I doubt I had even seen the movie back when I used to watch the cartoon, but the movie is definitely one of my all time favorites now.  I haven't seen it in ages and I would love to rewatch it!

Favorite 80's tv show:



Have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy The A-Team?  It's so much fun!  My favorites characters are Murock and B.A.  If I ever see a rerun playing, I will stop and watch it!

Favorite thing about the 80's:



It's difficult to pinpoint one thing, but I can't resist the 50's and 60's nostalgia in pop movies from the 80's.  Some examples: Back to the Future, Grease, Stand By Me, Footloose, American Graffiti, The Outsiders.

Where were you in 1989?

Well, I was a baby in 1989...

Favorite 80's cereal:



Kix - Luckily it's still available!

Favorite 80's fashion trend:



Ray-Bans - Not that I've ever had any, but I do enjoy that style for sunglasses.

Favorite artist of the 80's:



Michael Jackson

Favorite song of the 80's:



This is a difficult one because it's so hard to choose just one, but I recently heard "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" by the Eurythmics and completely forgot how much I enjoyed it!  I could listen to this over and over on repeat!

Favorite 80's book:


Of my favorite YA books released in the 80's, I'd have to say one near the top of my list is So You Want to Be a Wizard by Diane Duane.  If you haven't read this book, and the others in the Young Wizards series for that matter, I highly recommend it!

Favorite 80's icon:


Johnny Depp - arguably still stands.

Favorite 80's crush:


You know, I'm not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Michael J. Fox because I liked Back to the Future so much.

Favorite toy from the 80's:


Skip-It, easily!  This was one of my absolute favorites when I was a kid.

Favorite chocolate bar from the 80's:


I don't know a whole bunch about 80's chocolate, but I do know that one of my favorite chocolate bars from my childhood was the still available Hershey's Krackel.  I probably the minis at Halloween, but they were the best!

  7. This is SO fun! I love it! Skip-it was kind of the best invention ever- especially since it counted FOR YOU. I always wanted to wear, watch, and listen to anything that DJ in Full House was doing on the show ;)

      You know, I never actually watched that show when I was younger - I have seen some now, but I didn't really grow up with it...
