It’s, like, totally bitchin’ you came back to find out what my favorite N’s are from the 1980s. Like the most righteous tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
The best part about Newhart was Larry and his brother Daryl and his other brother Daryl – and that’s the way they introduced themselves every episode over eight seasons, and it was funny every single time. Newhart, of course starring Bob Newhart, was about a couple running an Inn in Vermont and their interactions with all the quirky townspeople. The last episode was a classic that tied in the old Bob Newhart show from the 1970s.
National Lampoon’s Vacation
Not sure if I actually I saw Vacation when it came out in 1983. I was only 10 then, but I have seen it several times since. Classic farce movie that is still funny today.
NKOTB (aka New Kids on the Block)
Where do i start? NKOTB and I have a long history and it is still going strong today. In high school, I loved Danny (but today I love Jordan). I had the Danny pillow case and those big NKOTB buttons. My first concert ever was New Kids on the Block at the Baltimore Arena in 1990 – I was 17. I camped out for tickets. I sat way up, far from the stage and just remember all the screaming from all the teenage girls. And now those teenage girls are women in their 30s and 40s still screaming at Jordan, Donnie, Joey, Danny and Jon. The next time I saw NKOTB was in Memphis in 2009, and I’ve seen every tour since. My favorite NKOTB songs now are “Single” and “Block Party,” but my favorite NKOTB song from the 80s (and probably third overall) is “Step by Step.” (And for you haters out there, check out NKOTB’s latest cds The Block and 10 – they’re nothing like the bubble gum songs from the 80s)
