It’s, like, totally bitchin’ you came back to find out what my favorite B’s are from the 1980s. Like the most righteous tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
It only ran for two seasons, beginning in 1980, but Bosom Buddies made quite an impression on me. I still remember it vividly. It was the first thing I ever saw Tom Hanks in, considering it was the first thing he starred in. If you never watched Bosom Buddies and have no idea what it was about, watch the video below as it explains it better than I ever could.
Back to the Future
I loved Back to the Future in 1985, and I still love it today. I watch the trilogy (well the first two movies) probably once a year or every other year. In October 2015, the trilogy was re-released in theaters to commemorate its 30th anniversary as well as for Back to the Future Day on October 26, 2015 – the day Marty went into the future in Back to the Future Part II. I went to the theater and watched the entire trilogy – all three movies for seven hours. Lots of popcorn and candy was consumed that night. My love for Back to the Future comes from its combination of 1950s and the 1980s, my two favorite decades.
I was totally in love with Bryan Adams back in the day. In middle school (1983-1986), I had his Reckless poster on the wall in my bedroom. The poster was a black and white photo of Bryan wearing a black leather jacket with the collar turned up 50s style. Again combining my love of the 1950s and 1980s. (this is a common theme through this challenge – not to mention my life) I am finally going to see Bryan Adams in concert for the first time this September at Wolf Trap in Virginia. Bryan’s latest album Get Up is actually really great. Usually these bands I liked in the 80s release albums now that I really don’t like that much. Usually it’s the nostalgia factor why I like them – their songs from the 80s. But i really like Bryan’s current songs, which will make his show in September all the more enjoyable. Now i know why I like Ryan Bingham so much – his raspy voice reminds me a lot of Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams had a lot of great songs in the 80s including, “Summer of ’69,” “Run to You,”One Night Love Affair,” “Somebody,””Cuts Like a Knife,” “Straight From the Heart,” “It’s Only Love,” but my favorite is “Heaven.”
