The 80s is my favourite time period because the music was amazing. The fashion was funny, kids at the mall with their Walkmans, grabbing their skateboards.
The early 1980s were full of innovative games, great prices and awesome movies. What a time to be alive! My favourite part of the 80s is the music; my favourite singer from the 80s is Michael Jackson. My favourite album of his is Thriller. It has over 400 million views on Youtube. Rap music and breakdancing also became extremely popular in these years. In the 1980s, there was one extremely popular TV show, The Oprah Winfrey Show! Audiences loved her because she was personal with the audience. Another show was The Cosby Show. It was a sitcom and talked about comedy about that time. In the 1980s, most of the big movie hits had state-of-the-art special effects. One of the most popular special effect movies was E.T (Extra Terrestrial) which came out in 1982. Audiences fell in love with the sweet alien, it made $700 million worldwide. In 1982, CD’s were introduced. Music fans could now listen to their favorite music without hearing the scratches of a vinyl LP. By the end of the 1980s, LPs were going out of style and CDs were in.
80s fashion was something to remember; it was very extreme. The hairstyles were hilariously over the top, especially the Mullet and permed hair. Clothing was very diverse among teenagers, and varied from preppies to punk rock and funk.
