I grew up in the 80's and remember it very well. Those are probably the best times of my life. I especially remember transit in New York City during the 80's. But who can forget the music and movies of the 80's. I have a very extensive collection of music and movies from the 80's. It's my most beloved collection.

Wow those dude from Metallica was kids when this pic was taken.

 

FYI. Metallica was inducted into the rock n roll hall of fame 2009 class.

Yeah, I heard. They've come a long way since the 80's. You could argue that they've become sellouts, but that wouldn't make sense since their last album was essentially back to the days when they weren't mainstream.

I agree, I'm thinking 'Smooth Operator', but "For you" wasn't the opening :confused:

 

No offense ladies on these boards but Sade was a babe i would have loved to date. So was other '80's era celebrity ladies like Actresses Molly Ringwood, lisa bonet(cosby show) Lisa Valdez(aka Lisa Lisa)a young Vansessa Williams, Tiffany and of course Madonna touching the surface.:tup::)
