The other day, I was glancing over my old high school yearbook from my senior year, 1988. And seeing all of the 80s hairstyles and clothing caused me to pause and ponder… what the hell were we thinking? The 1980s were interesting years, almost like a transition decade between the disco age of the 1970s and the grunge age that started in the 1990s. The brightly colored clothing was like something out of Joseph and His Technicolor Dream Coat. And I think we caused more damage in the 1980s to the ozone than any other decade simply by the amount of hair spray required to keep our hair high and puffy. The music was radically different too. Gone were the days of the Bee Gees and their disco rhythm to be replaced by the power ballads of bands like Journey and Asia. And, who can forget (no matter how hard we try) the teaming up of Aerosmith with Run DMC with “Walk This Way”.
