It’s, like, totally bitchin’ you came back to find out what my favorite T’s are from the 1980s. Like the most righteous tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
While most of my friends were watching cartoons, I was watching grown up sit coms like Three’s Company. That’s just what I enjoyed. I am sure most of the adult humor went way over my head, but I loved those shows. John Ritter was brilliant, and Don Knotts was a genius.
I was completely obsessed with Top Gun and Tom Cruise in high school. I had Top Gun recorded on my beta, then vhs, and would rewatch it over and over again. I knew every line and would go around quoting the movie: “I feel the need, the need for speed” and “You can be my wingman anytime – bullshit you can be mine.” My favorite scene, besides the beach volleyball scene of course, was when Maverick and Goose serenade Charlie at the bar with “You’ve Lost That Lovin Feeling.” I cried so hard when Goose died (oh sorry spoiler alert) and then was happy to see him resurrected on ER eight years later.
Tears for Fears
I was a big fan of Tears for Fears in middle school, well at the Songs From the Big Chair ablum with “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” “Shout,” and my favorite “Head Over Heals.”
