What first comes to mind when I think about the 80s and more importantly when I think about the music, TV and films that came out in the 80s, I think about my dad and his love for 80s rock bands. Growing up whenever I was in the car with my dad rock band typically from the 80s was on the radio. Some of this bands included: ACDC, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Guns and Roses, and so many more. I also always think about how my brother would constantly play Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N’ Roses on Guitar Hero when I was little.
Another thing that comes to mind when I think about the 80s was the show Full House. I used to be (and still am) so obsessed with the show. Looking back on it now, it’s so interesting to see the fashion and hair styles from back when the show start and how different they are from later in the show and even in the spin of show.
I think the 80s is going to be a very interesting topic for this class. It is really interesting to think about how much pop culture in the 80s could effect what pop culture is like today. I think another thing that could be interesting to explore is why the pop culture was the way it was in the 80s. For example, why were the TV and movies produce the way that they were and was it because they were all just try to distract themselves from what was going on in the world.
I am very excited to see the different view points and things that we will discover will talk about the 80s in this class.
