Hello from a newb. [8D] I've been sitting here reading this thread and laughing out loud. Every time I see a picture from the 80s, the first thing that reaches out and scares me is the RBH (Really Big Hair). I mean, that stuff was big and scary. Talk about Bride of Frankenstein. I'm surprised everyone didn't just go bald from all the damage their hair suffered.

Have you ever been invited to a RETRO 80's Party only to go there and find EVERYTHING you hated about the 80's maximized to the greatest extent possible?? God it pisses me off... Here's a list of songs that are played NO MATTER WHAT whenever you go to one of these things...

"Celebration" - Kool & The Gang, "Gloria" - Laura Branigan, "You Shook Me All Night Long" - AC/DC, "Old Time Rock 'n Roll" - Bob Seger, "We built This City" - Starship, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - Cindy Lauper, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" - Whitney "Crack is Whack" Houston, "Conga" - Miami Sound Machine, "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" - Wham, "You Give Love A Bad Name" - Bon Jovi...

My list could go on and on, but frankly, it's depressing the crap out of me, so I'll stop now... thanks.
