80s Nostalgia!!

#1
This probably applies to the old and bald amonst us, maybe the over 35s lol!! ...but anone else miss the 1980s?...we had a prime minister, who we didnt always like, but atleast we knew where we stood..and maggie did atleast love the forces..

Some of my memories of the 80s!

Aldershot, great on the piss!!...believe it or not!!

Northern Ireland and threat of cold war looming (ok not so great memory)..but atleast we knew our enemy

Only having 4 tv channels to chose from!

Great music, from pop to funk to soul!

Getting a great car for £ 300

Taches..everyone in the army had one...even the privates!!

Being cool, if you had a cd player!

Being cool if you had a Capri..


God, life so so much more simple and carefree two decades ago!!

I guess were all looking back at happier times than the doom and gloom of now..

Going to put my simple minds cd on now..

I was still sat cross legged in the front room watching the 'A' Team and pulling my bright red foreskin back and forth but I DO remember not being able to contain myself and breaking into a funky dance every time Gang of Four or Joy Division came on in our house.

The late 50s and early 60s were the best time to be a kid, you could shoot squirrals in the park with an air rifle and get paid a shilling by the park keeper,carry a weapon , A sheath knife< in plain site as a boy scout, without getting nicked, TV was black and white and crap so we never watched. You could play in the street and not get killed and , of course, join the Army aged 15 great days

Berlin - the Wall - driving through the corridor - being a millionaire for the day in East Berlin - Russian Soldiers (were they all that big?)

Porn films with music and storylines.

Tesexes in Germany for weeks on end.

Ex Snow Queen - now sadly gone thanks to (Marxist) Labour MP Kevan Jones' complaints.

An Army commanded by Generals not Civil Service beancounters.

Shakatak, Shalamar, Human League and Adam Ant.

Hill Street Blues on Channel 4.
Can't remember when the series started in UK - I didn't start watching it until Autumn 81. It was the only TV series I ever made an effort to stay in and watch! Perhaps the most absorbing series I've ever watched, with the best theme music by far.

Fingering a bird while sitting next to her in Miss Nash's English class - my best memory of the 80s, in fact one of my best memories ever

edited to remove birds name - apparently she saw it while googling herself and is a bit upset.

Eileen - can it really be you? Are your pi$$flaps still like bats wings, are your nipples still inverted, do you still give BJs for cider.

Hey - lets meet up again soon.

That's not nostalgia, that's ancient history.
