Missing the 1980s
Saw this Eighties Movie Tribute/ Music video on Social Media today and it made me feel Nostalgic. And also lucky that I grew up in the 1980’s as I thought it was a great decade. Listening to the Music Charts and buying records was a big part of that.
With the way the world is now, starting to feel quite scary and Dystopian and controlled it makes you see these times as Golden. I thought maybe it was because I grew up then but my younger niece said she loved the Eighties too. I honestly think the 60s, 70s and 80s were very special decades. Creatively and Musically. For me the music of those decades stands out.
There was a freshness and an innocence about the 80s, there were lots of love songs and feel good music and movies. There was a lot of FUN and a lot of DANCE and a lot of COLOUR.
Anyway I have not been able to write as much as my laptop has not been working and it is proving a bit of a nightmare to get a new one that has what I want. Long story! This is my first time using Block Editor on WordPress and I really do not like it at all. Eek!!!! Need to figure out how to revert to Classic Editor! I much preferred that.
On the subject of the 1980’s Freddie Mercury would have been 74 today. What an absolute LEGEND he was. Total icon with a high level of Personal Magneticism, Talent, Charisma, Confidence and Personality.
Can’t wait until cinema going, music concerts and travel are a normal part of life again. I don’t like Dystopia. Once I get a new laptop sorted I will be back to writing more frequently. Have lots of cool photos to share. 🙂
Here’s Freddie Mercury performing Radio Ga Ga at Live Aid in 1985. I remember watching that on TV at the time. I even had the T-shirt. EPIC Concert.
