    Dancing Chocobo The Eighties

    Spent my mornings eating Crispy Critters cereal and watching Care Bears and My Little Pony. It was fantastic. The 80s also produced some god-tier music and movies.

    What say you about this glorious decade?

    There were some phenomenal movies released this decade. E.T. Empire Strikes Back, Back to the Future, Aliens, The Breakfast Club. When I think of eighties music though I immediately think of all the synth-pop stuff which I didn't really care for. Like any decade though, there are some absolute crackers if you do a bit of digging. My personal favourites were Mike and the Mechanics, The Cure and The Stone Roses.

    Atari 5200 (rip), NES, He-Man, Mr. T, Alphabets Cereal, Back to the Future movies, Nightmare on Elm Street, Family Ties, strangely enough the movie Bachelor Party. There was a lot of great stuff I liked growing up.
