As graduation approached in the spring of 1983, I began to plan, well hope is more like it, that I could attend the US Festival in Southern California.
This was four days of live music and entertainment from all those acts we saw on MTV (back when they used to play music videos).
There were very few artists who did not play at The US Festival.
From Van Halen to the Scorpions, to The Clash and Missing Persons, there were more than 100 bands and musicians at The US Festival.
Another classic 1980's Music video courtesy of Youtube, Steve Garelli and, of course, Tommy Tutone.
I remember plying Galaga and Pacman at the local arcade, listening this song.
Oh, the good times...
Making your own 80s costume is easy.
By simply reviewing some 80s movies, videos or television shows and making a few notes, you can assemble an impressive 80s costume.
There are many ideas for 80s costumes and 80s theme parties to choose from.
Creating a killer 80s costume for Halloween is a snap for adults, teens and kids with video tutorials and more great 80s party information.
1981 was another banner year at the movies. Many favorite stars from the past were making movies and many great new actors were appearing on the scene.
Some of the little known actors of 1981, such as Denzel Washington, have gone to become "Mega Stars"
Here's a list of the top 25 box office stars of 1981, some of the top movies of 1981, and promising new actors from that year.
"On Golden Pond" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" are the two movies from 1981 that should be most remembered 27 years later.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
Was the Motown 25th Anniversary the beginning of the end for Michael?
Little did we know then what was to come later. Michael was eccentric. That was obvious.
The surgery to bob his nose and cleave his chin, a llama, a giraffe and and ostrich roaming his estate in Southern California and a failed bid for the Elephant Man's remains were, while odd, not totally unusual for a celebrity.
I just wanted to take a moment with our readers to share our support for Patrick Swayze and his family.
We would love to see one of our favorite 80s stars, Mr. Swayze get on with his acting career and to beat the dreaded cancer that has so abruptly intruded upon the life of a quiet and generous hollywood star.
Patrick Swayze was on M.A.S.H. very early in his career, which many did not know. Watch for this episode in the reruns and check the credits if you don't believe me.
The 80s decade started off with some movies that have really stood the test of time.
The first year of the 80s, 1980, saw several promising actors that are still going strong well into the 21st century.
The Star Wars franchise was going strong in 1980. And with the release of Empire Strike Back in 1980, Star Wars and the action figures and other merchandise were officially pop-culture.
1980 was a pretty good year at the box office.
The 1980 Academy for Best Film went to "Ordinary People" starring Donald Sutherland, Mary Tyler Moore and a very young Timothy Hutton.
In the early 1980s thousands of UK bands hoped to make it like Duran Duran.
The second British invasion helped to power the new wave music explosion in the U.S. as many bands and artists were picked up by MTV and recording companies.
The list of eighties bands from the UK includes many thousands of lesser known 80sUK bands.
It was a great opportunity for bands and artists from the UK to do something different.
While inspired by a fusion of punk and synthesizers, the new wave music of the 80s was a musical genre or style all its own.
