life in the 1980s

1980s

If you are between the ages of 37 and 42, then you remember how glorious it was to grow up in the 1980s. I was 8 in 1980 and 18 in 1990, so my formidable years were spent in the 1980s. I remember how life was in the early 1980s before there were cds or cassettes. We used to bring our record player outside and listen to Xanadu while roller skating round and round the carport – complete with ribbon barrettes just like Olivia Newton-John. images

I remember how life was in the early 1980s before there were microwaves. I would heat up my leftover pizza in the oven. Actually, you had to heat up all leftovers in the oven – or just finish all of your dinner. 550px-Cook-Pizza-in-a-Gas-Oven-Step-4

I remember how life was in the early 1980s before there was cable tv or remote controls.  I used to sit on the floor close to the television so it was easier to change the channels. There were only a few, so it didn’t take that long. old-tv

I remember how life was in the early 1980s before there was dvr or dvds, or even vhs recorders. I used to record my favorite movie Grease on my beta recorder every time it was played on tv.
