It’s, like, totally bitchin’ you came back to find out what my favorite F’s are from the 1980s. Like the most righteous tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
Spanning almost the entire decade running from 1982 to 1989, I literally grew up with Family Ties. I watched it every week with my parents and starred the adorable Michael J. Fox. It is for these reasons I chose Family Ties over Facts of Life as my favorite F television show from the 80s. Although it was really close. I still watch both when the repeats are aired, and have the first few seasons of both on dvd.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
I saw Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on my last day of middle school with about two rows of my classmates. And for that reason alone, Ferris will always hold a special place in my heart. Ferris is going to be shown in theaters for two days this May to commemorate its 30th anniversary, even though it was release in June (not May) 1986.
I do not really have a clear favorite F band or song from the 80s. Flock of Seagulls and Frankie Goes to Hollywood were both good, but Foreigner had more of a lasting impact with me. I would not call them one of my favorite bands, but they did have some great songs in the 80s including “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” “That Was Yesterday,” “Say You Will,” but my favorite of theirs is “I Want to Know What Love Is.”
