What's New at Simply Eighties?
What were people protecting their eyes with back in the 80s? Actually, some styles didn't protect the eyes at all and were worn purely as a fashion accessory. From Ray-Bans to shutter shades, on this revamped page I look back at the wide variety of styles that were worn in the eighties.
Is it just
me, or was there much more to watch on the TV when we were kids?
Although we only had three TV channels here in the UK, there was always
something decent to watch, and this page features links to dozens of
pages about both British and American TV Shows
from yesteryear. Were you a Dukes Of Hazzard fan, or maybe Charlie's Angels was more your thang?
The 1980s saw the birth of the music video revolution, thanks mainly to MTV. Here you'll find a complete A-Z of all the music video pages on the Simply Eighties site. It's an ever-growing list, and you find everything from ABBA to ZZ Top. Most of the videos are official (where available), and I've hand-picked the best quality ones from Youtube. From New Wave to 80s power ballads, they're all here!
So who had a trim phone? Actually, we never had one of these as we just weren't posh enough - just a plain old, standard cream dial telephone for us! Anyway, on the 80s technology page I have written about my own experiences with VHS tapes, an Amstrad TV, CB Radio and a lot more besides.
So what gadgets couldn't we live without during the 1980s? Actually, we could live without them a darn sight better than than people do these days. Now that's either because the gadgets were rubbish, or because we were made of sterner stuff. Whatever your thoughts, here you'll find lots of pictures and facts about digital watches, instant cameras, VCR's and Sodastream.
Glamour model Linda Lusardi went on to become a TV presenter and actress, and you'll be pleased to know that you can find out what happened to lots of other famous folk from the 80s on this page.
