The 80's was ok because Liverpool Football Club ruled. Apart from that the 80's were a bit ***t.

I was at School in the 80's or rather avoiding school. So there's another reason the 80's was ***t.

Musically I was listening to Bad Rock music during the 80's so I probably have a lot to answer to.

I knew Sammy Davis Jnr sounded all wrong. He was in Cannonball Run.

How much fun would it have been if Sammy Davis Jr HAD sung 'Ghostbusters'.... "Who'ya gonna call... doo bee doo bee doooo.." ;-)

And who would ever have thought that the 80s hairstyles for men would be back in the 00's ? Looking like Limahl or having a mullet is trendy again. Yikes !!

WHERE oh where was Footloose?!! Classic 80's bumpf (by which i mean I love it) & Top Gun should definitely have been there!

Never ending story??? Plucking at straws...& since when was 1990 in the 80s? AND what about Dirty Dancing???

Having said all that, I love the show! Keep up the good work...

But I'm a child of the 90s so can we have some 90s stuff now, pleeeease? xxx
