Like, OH MY GOD! It’s totally awesome you came back to find out what my favorite W’s are from the 1980s. Like the most rad tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
Who’s the Boss?
Who wasn’t in love with Tony Danza? He was not only gorgeous, but also adorable and sweet in Who’s the Boss? It’s also where we first met Alyssa Milano. I was in love with show in the 80s, 90s and today.
I usually don’t like dumb funny movies, but like Raising Arizona, I loved Weird Science. Not only for the classic hysterical lines like “gimme the keys I’ll drive” and “he doesn’t even have his license Lisa” (ok maybe they were just funny to me), but also for how cute Robert Downey Jr was – his eyes made me melt.
Before there was U2 (for me), there was Wham! Wham was my band. I loved them! Andrew Ridgely was my favorite though, not George Michael. Luckily they broke up when started high school, just in time for me to make room in my heart for U2. I still enjoy Wham today. In fact, “Wham Rap” came on my 80s mix the other day, and I knew every word. In the 80s, Wham had hits including “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” “Freedom,” “I’m Your Man,” “Careless Whisper,” “Last Christmas,” “Young Guns” and my favorite “Everything She Wants.”
