Subject: What's your favorite year of the 80s?

Written By: 80sfan on 04/26/13 at 12:43 pm

What's your favorite year of the 80s? No, not decadeology like 1979-1993 or something. The years 1980-1989!!

So what's your favorite year out of those ten?

My favourite year in the 80s was 1985 for the following reasons.

1.  Some of my favourite bands came out of England that year
2.  Toronto was quite an enjoyable place to live at the time
3.  I was a kid and I felt like Peter Pan not wanting to grow up.  :)

I'd say...1980.  My last year of high school. Lots of amazing parties. Would have been a better year if that Mark David Chapman guy hadn't killed John Lennon. :\'(

1984 and 1985 were good too.

Yup, Toronto was an enjoyable place at the time, agreed.

1989 was a great year for me too due to several unique and bizarre experiences. (A girl from Mexico wanted to marry me, weird story. Also, another married woman wanted to have me on several occasions. Spent so much energy turning her down and ended up dating her best friend which made her both happy and vengeful at the same time) :D

I wasn't born yet, but 1980 was the worse years of the 80s for my family.

But then during 1980 by accident I was about 5 years old a year earlier I cut my bangs and for the first few years it showed in my class pictures. :-[

I never cut my hair at all.  My school picture was a crop of curly locks that turned wavy by the time I was 12.  :)

I cut my hair by accident, I grabbed a pair of scissors while My Mother was doing some painting and I cut my bangs off. :-[

I would have to pick 1989 by virtue of being born in it.

I would have just become a teenager in 1984, almost ready for high school! Good times for sure.

Also 1988 was a good year because that's when New Kids On The Block were really really really popular with the females and the males always felt threatened by them for some reason or another that I, personally, couldn't fathom not liking them.  :)

Since I was born in the late 80s and I don't remember a thing I can't say I have experience with the 80s, but I would've loved to have 1984 as my favorite year.
