80s Nostalgia 

Memories from your Childhood

Firstly, the fast-paced video montage above is aimed at a U.S. audience, but even if you're British (like me) or from other countries, this is packed with old pictures from the eighties and there are still a lot of items that you will, no doubt, remember.

There are more videos further down the page.

 

A page full of memories from the 70s. Dig out your flared trousers and jump on your chopper bike for a trip back down memory lane.

Take a trip down memory lane with all the posts from my Tumblr blog, which can be accessed without leaving the Simply Eighties site. The 80s Heaven blog features photos and video clips of everything 80s, including magazine front covers, music, gadgets, movie posters and more!

I have selected only the very best stations to include on this page, and all of them are playing only music from the past!

Just like today, some gadgets were far more useful than others, but what gadgets were we all using in the eighties?
Take a look back at the TV Times for kids which was very popular throughout the 1970s and 80s.

Nearly everyone sported a mullet back in the 80s didn't they? Well, maybe not, but those who did are regretting it now! Check out the ghastly hair style photos and video clips!

This pop magazine was Smash Hits main rival, and many would argue that it was the better of the two.

Currys TV Advert from the 80s
It's interesting to see that the prices of many of these items are roughly the same as they are today. However, although electrical items are cheaper to buy today with our higher wages, it's the cost of everything else that is now a problem - it used to cost me around £1 to fill my moped up with fuel back then and that would last me the week!
Woolworths Christmas TV Ad from 1981
Now this clip is packed with nostalgia - how I miss Woolworths!  I suppose this ad seems a bit cheesy now, but Bill Oddie and Tim-Brooke Taylor are not taking themselves too seriously. I'd completely forgotten about the Pickwick records that they used to sell, and watch out for the hi-fi unit, carriage clock, and Bontempi organ - great memories!
