Back when men were men who also wore makeup.
Ah, the ’80s. A time when MTV actually showed music videos.
Videos by artists like Prince.
And Boy George’s Culture Club.
And The Cure.
And Morrissey, with or without The Smiths.
The commercials were delightfully simple, like this one for Burger King.
Or this one for Pizza Hut.
Oh, and Honey Smacks.

Or Aerobics? The ’80s was the best sports era, hands down.
And the games were even better, whether they be physical…
Or physically digital.
Yep, the ’80s were a magical time when man, woman, and dog lived in harmony.
Beautiful, breakdancing harmony.
A time when life was as full of hope as Brooke Shields’ hair was as full of bounce.
A time when technology knew no bounds.
Well, some bounds.
Still, it left us with the thought that we could accomplish our dreams, much in part to this man.
Oh, ’80s, you will forever be the greatest decade. Thanks for the memories.
