Irene Cara Is an underrated 80's Icon

I think a lot of 80 fanatics miss the boat on this because there are alot of artists that are one hit wonders but Irene Cara was not. She has some big songs and was the theme song Queen. She sung the theme song to "Fame", "Flashdance", and "DC Cab". She also had sex appeal. If you don't remember who she is. Here's a clip of her.

Magic vs. Bird

Since the playoffs are in full effect I thought it would be great to show one of the classic matchups during the 80's Magic Johnson vs. Larry Bird. They made the NBA in the 80's.

Catchy Commercial's

In the eighties there were alot of catchy commercials. Most of them were based off of jingles.You dont find too many jingles in commercials like that anymore. The most recent one I can think is the new Subway Commercial about the $5 footlong subs (Pause! lol)

Here are a few catchy commercials.

Big Mac


Double Mint Gum

80's Nostalgia- Angel in a Centerfold

When I was younger I thought that this was the first video made. This is a classic 80's video. I love how the drummer is drumming with milk on his drums. Some of the mistsimple things in a video make a video great.



This song brings back good memories of the 80's to me. What nostalgic things bring back memories to you?

The Police or Genesis... Who Do You Think is a Better Band?

I feel this is an interesting question. I think on the surface a lot of people will probably say the Police because of there media popularity. Genesis has a great body of work. Even though they are very popular I feel that they are always under the radar. Both bands have made great music.

Who do you think is the better band?


Genesis-Invisible Touch


Police-King of Pain
