Back Like A High-Top Fade

Hey! Retro Kids love the eighties.

This past weekend a friend about to have her first child started making plans with her girlfriends to have one last wild dance night at a ridiculously popular club that specializes in playing 80s music–big hair, big t-shirts with big slogans, big snare drums, big color, big drinks. Woke up the next day to see the picture above. But like those great philosophers once said, I still can’t stand fluorescent socks.

Now you can take me back to this and this and this and this and this and OK now I’m getting carried away, this and yes even, this!

But for the most part, man, the 80s were one long decade.

To be fair, they ended perfectly well. The last three years were especially HOT. Even better, they became the 90s. But I’ll probably have to wait a few years for my own sons to start asking me if they can have those old flannels and canvas Carharts in the closet.

    And Prince and Madonna never sounded better than in the 80’s
