Search for a memory...

Established in 2009, the Simply Eighties website is dedicated almost entirely to the 1980s, and will help you to rekindle the many thousands of memories etched in your brain. 

The site explores all areas of the great decade, which was very much in your face with bold and daring fashion clothing, voluminous hair styles and groundbreaking music videos.

Popular Pages about the 80s

Here are some of the most popular pages about the 80s, which you may like to take a gander at...
Some of these are going to bring the memories of your childhood flooding back! Read about the most popular toys and games from both the 1970s and 80s including Subbuteo, BigTrak, Action Man, Cabbage Patch Dolls and a whole lot more on the 80s Toys page.
They were often unreliable and prone to rust, but there are still many of us who are very fond of the old cars from the 70s and 80s. So which were your favourites? To help you decide, you'll find lots of photos of classic and not-so classic cars, inc. models by British Leyland, as well as sports cars and some American cars, too. Plenty of car photos and plenty of memories, too - visit the 80s Cars page.
Computer games were a lot simpler back in the 1980s, but they were also a lot more accessible. Frogger, Defender and Pac-Man were particular favourites of mine, and you can access many old classics on this page and play online for free, as well as read reviews of other computer games from the 80s.
The 1980s saw the beginning of the home computing revolution, a time when many of us actually learned how to program our computers. Which games consoles and computers did you use back in the 80s? From the very simple ZX80 to the highly popular, 16 bit Commodore Amiga, they can all be found on the 80s Computers page.
So what did you wear in the eighties? This page features the outrageous clothing being worn in the great decade including crazy New Romantic big hair and quiff hair styles for men, shoulder pads, ra-ra skirts, parachute pants, Don Johnson (from Miami Vice) in his white suits, "Choose Life" T-shirts, pixie boots, boxer shorts, Ray Bans, big spectacles - the list goes on! Did you have 80s style or were you like me, an 80s fashion disaster!
These video clips and photos will help you to relive your 70s or 80s childhood, and on this page you can look at bucketloads of old-fashioned confectionary from the past, some of which has now disappeared, and some of which is still being made today. The question is, did you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo?

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.

Do you remember the pleasure you experienced from visiting the local record store and purchasing the latest 12" single on vinyl? You may also remember popping down to the video rental store and hiring out the latest film on VHS such as Ghostbusters or Back To The Future? Sadly, you can no longer enjoy such an experience, but the memories remain forever etched inside our brains. Indeed, I think you'll agree that shopping in the 80s was a much more satisfying experience than it is today.
