It took me a long time to come up with my top 20 80’s song list since there are so many songs and artists I love from that decade. In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel would have been my no. 1 choice but unfortunately Spotify doesn’t have the original song. I experience the 80’s as a child but a lot of the music (after the 70’s and 60’s) I love also comes from this influential decade. Speaking of the 80’s I am NOT liking very much the CNN miniseries. They are concentrating too much on making Reagan look like a saint, and I was thoroughly disappointed and angry to learn they have decided not to air the episode based on the AIDS Crisis because they deemed it too controversial and depressing. I don’t know how true this is but if it is it sounds like Horse shit to me. I hope they reconsider because no matter how ugly and controversial the AIDS crisis was it was a BIG part of that decade.
In this blog entry I wrote about my favorite 80’s sitcoms. If there is one thing the 80’s decade had was great TV shows, especially comedies. Among other favorites are; Growing Pains, Murphy Brown, Perfect Strangers, Who’s the Boss, The Facts of Life, Kate & Allie, Empty Nest, Punky Brewster and and Full House.
