I leave in Northern Virginia, between Washington, DC & Richmond, VA. I have lived in the same town my whole life. I am a Legal Assistant for the Federal Government. November 17, 2012 marked my 25 year anniversary as a Federal Employee. I am the oldest of 5 & my youngest sibling is 20 years younger than I am (& we all have the same parents, who are still married after 46 years). <BR> <BR> I am a recent breast cancer survivor.

I saw it last weekend and while it has its flaws it's a great cheesy fun look at the 80s with songs from Journey, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Poison, Foreigner, Twisted Sister, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, et al. And much to my surprise Tom Cruise did a great job as the lead singer of an 80s supergroup. If you're an 80s music lover, I highly recommend this flick! Wed, 20 Jun 2012 17:56:20 EST Im an 80s baby! I graduated High School in '83 and college in'88 so the 80's is totally my era! I miss MTV when they still played music videos, big hair, and especially 80's music-the cheesier the better! Wed, 20 Jun 2012 17:44:55 EST Where's my AquaNet? Love the 80s! Always have and always will, even though I was such a youngin' (Born in '82). <BR> <BR> Luckily my older brothers introduced me to awesome bands like The Cure, Duran Duran, The Smiths, Bruce Springsteen, Motley Crue and many others. To this day, myself and my friends always break out 80s music while hanging out or even while partying. We've even had a couple kickin' 80s parties in our day. (My curly hair helps when teasing is needed...) <BR> <BR> So here's support to myself... Wed, 29 Feb 2012 21:57:50 EST Random Thoughts and Tidbits Today I read this in the Loma Linda University Health System newsletter: <BR> <BR> &#8206;"In a study published in "Circulation," the journal of the American Heart Association, researchers found that women whose waist circumference was 35 inches or more had double the risk of dying of cardiovascular disease compared with those with a waist smaller than 28 inches. The women with a larger middle were also much more likely to die of cancer." <BR> <BR> Well now, if this doesn't give me incenti... Thu, 26 Jan 2012 12:14:13 EST What 80's bands have you seen live this year? This has been a great year for 80's live shows! So far this year I've seen: <BR> Berlin ( a couple different times) <BR> The Fixx <BR> GoGos <BR> The English Beat <BR> The Human League <BR> Tears for Fears... <BR> and it looks like Billy Idol may be coming up next month. <BR> <BR> <BR> Who have you all seen live lately? <BR> Tue, 8 Nov 2011 00:50:28 EST How about a new team photo? Wondered whether anyone else in the group would like to see a new team photo? Its been 'Oingo Boingo' for as long as I can remember (I've been a Spark member before with a different username) and I had to google the title as had never heard of this 80's band. I have a couple of possible replacements: <BR> <link><BR>/2011/08/i_love_the_80s_lowres.jpg </link> <BR> <link><BR>/uploads/2011/06/fonda-jane-photo-jane<BR>-...

I want to be able to ride roller coasters and do other activities like the rest of the world. I'm not a person who feels sick. I'm just too large for the world around me. I hope to find information and motivation. Tue, 19 Oct 2010 10:18:47 EST Hello Sparkpeople! Hi, everyone! My brother referred me to this site and I'm so glad he did!

(30 inches of snow in my yard in case you were wondering how much we got!) I am well known with my friends and family for being an 80's music enthusiast, as well as winning tons of trivia games. Nice to meet everyone! <BR> <em>213</em> Mon, 8 Feb 2010 21:01:21 EST Rockin' to the 80's Hi everyone, <BR> I'm Carrie, just joined this team today, and am fairly new to Sparkpeople. What a cool team!! I'm such an 80's girl...graduated HS in what used to be called New Wave...I notice on my Sirius Radio they now call it "80's alternative" or something! For my 40th birthday we had a big 80's party with costumes--it was totally awesome!! If I can ever get some photos loaded, I'll add a few from the party! Oh, and my husband and I also play in a band with friends, for fu... Mon, 25 Jan 2010 17:25:24 EST Re-introd uction... OK - so 3rd time is a charm, yes??? I am back, actually I never left just lost my way for a bit. A lot has happened in the last 12+ months. I moved from CA to Charleston, then left my husband and moved to FL and now I am back where I belong in San Diego! Not only are there these physical changes, but some major emotional changes. My outlook on life has taken a full 180. I am on my own for the first time in about 25 years and I love it. I am accountable to me. No more excuses and no one... Tue, 5 Jan 2010 12:51:56 EST Thin in 2010! Hello to my fellow SP members. Today is my last day one....I have never reached my goal weight, I have never been a comfortable size 10 (as an adult), I have never been able to change my "way of life" but I never had SP either, So with the support of SP, my incredible family and my beautiful amazing friends, I believe that I can change my "nevers" into reality and in 2010, I will be thin and healthy. Thank you to all in advance for your support. Sun, 29 Nov 2009 20:57:42 EST DuranDuran's Rio Album art by Patrick Nagel.

It's classic but the funny thing is that even though all the music is 80's (mostly alternative 80'), the patrons are mostly 20 something year olds. <BR> <BR> I went there dressed normally; jeans, black shoes, tight black tank top and black ball cap and most of them were dressed like they were TRYING to dress from the 80's. <BR> <BR> Too funny. It lo...

Tue, 13 Oct 2009 11:58:44 EST Pittsburgh, PA Hi, I'm from the Greater Pittsburgh Area and am a 1980 graduate. My 80's experience was right when it was happening. My brother is a well known club DJ in Pittsburgh and he pretty much spoon fed me all the hit songs and hit songs to be at the time. <BR> <BR> I remember when he played a demo copy of The Pet Shop Boys "West End Girls", I was like, 'Whaaaa?' but he said it was gonna smash the market. I was listening to General Public, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Orchestral Manouvers in the Dark, an...

PFFT! I said NO way was it ever going to happen and if it did it would go off the air within 6 months. <BR> <BR> DOH! <BR> <BR> Thu, 8 Oct 2009 14:39:25 EST Mama Wants Her Body Back! Hi everyone! My name is Desiree. I am a new mom of a beautiful 5 week old baby girl and I am desperate (and determined!) to lose every single one of the pounds I gained during my pregnancy. Being that I am BEYOND tired (Boy, is it TRUE that you don't get much sleep with a newborn!) as well as a little overwhelmed at the realization of JUST how much weight I gained (31 lbs!), I could really use some extra help getting motivated. Wish me luck on my journey to get my body back! : ) Fri, 2 Oct 2009 16:30:55 EST I"ll Stop the World and Melt with You! I LOVE THE 80s!!! I still have my jelly bracelets, banana clip and braided barrettes with the beads on ribbon!

Thu, 25 Jun 2009 21:21:25 EST Here's a flashback for ya...pull-up challenge! Remember those Presidential Physical Fitness tests? The killer one was how many pull-ups you could do, right? <BR> <BR> Well, I just formed a new challenge team called 'Pull-Ups, Chin-Ups, and Other Manly Exercises' and the challenge is to eventually be able to do 20 pull-ups in one rep. <BR> <BR> I know there's a lot of ladies here, but don't feel excluded just cause I used the words 'manly exercises'. You gals are perfectly capable of doing this challenge, and I hope some join. There's... Sun, 21 Jun 2009 02:53:54 EST Get your DVR's ready, it's Ninja Time!

Or at least that's how you'll feel after watching the single greatest obstacle course challenge show EVER... <BR> <BR> Ninja Warrior!! <BR> <BR> Now your asking, "SHUTYERTRAP, why should I care right now when the show airs every day on G4?". To that I say, because G4 is doing a marathon of EVERY episode this week... Thu, 18 Jun 2009 12:02:45 EST Name that 80s Tune ... just like it says. Post some song lyrics, no more than maybe 4 or 5 lines, and the next person guesses the title, then they put out their stump the panel lyrics. <BR> <BR> I'll start us off with an easy one -- <BR> <BR> People always told me, "Be careful of what you do, <BR> And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts" <BR> And mother always told me, "Be careful of who you love, <BR> And be careful of what you do 'cause the lie becomes the truth" Tue, 9 Jun 2009 08:13:50 EST Newbie to this Team Hey, just saw this team, and there couldn't be a better fit! I LOVE 80's music!! I was born in '84 and since day one I've been singing and dancing to all the 80s I can get my hands on... my friends think it's wierd, but I LOVE IT! I have about 90% of my mp3player filled with it. Tue, 2 Jun 2009 13:51:31 EST Please Please Tell Me Now--any Duranies out there? Hello, <BR> <BR> New to this site and just learning about different SparkTeams. I can't believe there is an 80's lovers area. I love 80s music, especially Duran Duran. I am still crazy about them. Would love to hear from any fellow Duranies!!!! <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 1 Jun 2009 18:55:31 EST What's your favorite 80's song? Lately I have been listening to Don't Stop Believin' the Glee Cast version and Overkill by Men at Work. Mon, 1 Jun 2009 05:32:50 EST Hi from New York! I'm Jill, class of '89 and love 80's music. Just recently saw Fleetwood Mac and Rick Springfield concerts. <BR> <BR> I love new wave & also the hair bands. Anything but heavy metal. <BR> <BR> Nice to find this team! <BR> <BR> -Jill Sun, 31 May 2009 08:01:02 EST A-Z Slang of the 80's Hi! I just want to see exactly how much slang we all know(remember) from the 80's. I'll start. <BR> <BR> Awesome Wed, 27 May 2009 12:25:26 EST new music inspired by the 80s I just read about this bad on a blog yesterday, they sounds like the 80s to me!

But lucky enough to be married to a man that plays bass in a band that focuses on the 80's! Their name? Doc Brown and the Jigawatts! Wed, 13 May 2009 08:46:01 EST BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MY MISSING SON! My son Zackary left our house in Waco, Texas between 1 pm and 4 pm on 5-2-09. As far as we know, he left on foot and may be carrying a black and light blue backpack, usually packed pretty full. He is 6'2" weighs 240 lb and just turned 18 on 3-15-09. <BR> BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MY MISSING SON! Sun, 3 May 2009 15:47:45 EST 80s summer concerts??? So, anyone hitting up some old rock concerts this summer? I saw Tigger mentioned some AC/DC tickets. I think Brad is getting me tickets for my birthday to see Def Leppard, Poison, & Cheap Trick together. (That should be totally awesome!) LOL! <BR> <BR> <em>32</em> Fri, 17 Apr 2009 23:19:29 EST Oingo boingo Seen them in concert 5 times one of the all time best bands ever. Danny Elfman is a genius!!

Just wanted to say hi. Joined the team today and looking forward to remembering a lot of good music and movies from the past. <em>30</em> Fri, 13 Mar 2009 11:11:28 EST Like, for sure, I'm back! As a lot of you know, "real life" tends to get in the way of "spark life" and as a result I had to cut down on a lot of my teams but what can I say, I missed you guys and missed chattin' up the 80's. So, here I am re-joining you spoon gagging, parachute pant wearing, the best tunes ever, 80's fans! Mon, 23 Feb 2009 16:26:57 EST Hi Everyone! Hello, I am new to the group, and love 80's music. I am glad I found this group! Sat, 21 Feb 2009 19:59:14 EST Lose for a good cause! I took this from one of my teams but I think it's great and all who want to pledge! <BR> <BR> General Mills is doing a promotion through The Biggest Loser. For every pound you lose, General Mills will donate 10 cents to a food bank. Since we're all losing weight anyway, we might as well register and help people:) <BR> <BR> <BR> Thu, 22 Jan 2009 12:06:36 EST Team Goal Idea Ok, I'm a Biggest Loser addict...but got a great idea off of it. Bob was saying stuff about how singing is great for your abs, which after being an operatic voice major when I was younger I am aware of those benefits as well. (Good form helps a lot with this!) <BR> <BR> Back to the team goal. To tie in the 80s thing, how about a goal of singing along with or singing a full 80s song everyday??? I think listing the song title would be interesting too. And yeah, you all should have heard m... Sun, 18 Jan 2009 12:33:18 EST New 2 the group..

Sun, 18 Jan 2009 08:05:52 EST Hi Fellow 80's Music Lovers Hi my name is Jackie and I just happened upon this team and thought I would check it out. <BR> By the Way, I love Brit Pop bands of the 80's. <BR> <BR> Fri, 16 Jan 2009 22:32:24 EST Songs of the 80's: Listen online! Well, I'm all done with my lists, but that doesn't mean I have to stop sharing! I kept mentioning that the local radio station here in Los Angeles was the shaper of my musical inclinations, that being KROQ. Well I just got an email sent to me from them, that they now have an online streaming channel of nothing but 80's tunes. <BR> <BR> So if my lists brought back fond memories, or made you go "I've never heard half these songs!", this would be a good place to check out. <BR> <BR> <link>... Tue, 13 Jan 2009 01:25:50 EST Shall I continue the humility? Been gone for a while, missed you all terribly. Missed especially the support and wishes. <BR> No excuses, except that this summer & fall I was too tired from work to spend time online. This fall we had to get our bathroom redone (dry rot in the subfloor), and I didn't want to do a thing. <BR> THEN... I was introduced to WoW, and now all my spare time online is beating up goblins, murlocs & other such critters. Amazingly enough, I'm still losing weight (slowly, but it's still coming off). ...

Between moving, school, an increased workload, two layoff waves (i managed to dodge the bullet on both of them - but the stress was there) and planning a wedding....

Saw them 5 different times, including the second to last concert they ever did. <BR> <BR> I absolutely love 80's new wave. I live in the Los Angeles area, and we have a station called KROQ that pretty much wrote the book on that music. I have an iPod playlist of 80's tunes that is close to 500 songs strong, all from that genre, in chronological order no less! There's pretty much not a single song anyone has been able to throw at me that I ... Mon, 1 Dec 2008 01:13:09 EST Goodness, how the 80's popstars have aged!!! I was flicking through the tv channels last Friday night at home and I came across an old man singing "I won't let the sun go down on me". <BR> "The nerve of him, ripping off Nik Kershaw's song", I thought. <BR> THEN I realised it actually WAS Nik Kershaw. <BR> <BR> Great show though, WOW!!! <BR> See the link below. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>1-2008/music-now-thats-what-i-call-198<BR>3-they-wont-let-the-sun-go-down-on-them </link> Tue, 25 Nov 2008 09:08:45 EST 80's Artists Name Game (A to Z) Air Supply Sun, 23 Nov 2008 23:32:50 EST Any new challenges???

How many of you stayed within your calorie and nutrition goals this weekend? <BR> <BR> Oddly enough, I did very poorly throughout week, going over every day by 400-900 calories, with the nutrional balance (an oxymoron in my case this week) being way too high in fat most days, and carbs on a couple. As much as 10% too high. <BR> <BR> But I did very well both Sunday and today. Sunday, I had ... Tue, 2 Sep 2008 01:51:05 EST Check out this great song. I cycled to this song this morning.

It was on Nickelodeon back in the good ol days (the 80's, of course!!) and it didn't last for long, but it was hilarious!! They had a bunch of funny skits and videos (remember Fish Heads -- that is where I first saw that one).

So glad there is a site that celebrates the best music EVER made! :P I have so many great memories from that time period and play the "classics" daily - and much to my family and neighbours chagrin, sing along (off tune of course) at the top of my lungs whenever I can! One day my son commented on how I know all the words to every song that comes on the radio! Many many years of practice, dear son! :d <BR> I look forward to meeting all you 80's lovers, sharing some great memorie... Sat, 26 Jul 2008 12:11:37 EST Zune Does anyone own a Zune MP3 player? If so, do you like it? What are some good things about it? and bad? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I'm considering purchasing an 80GB player priced at, I think, a reasonable 249.99 compared to 329.99 for a 32GB Creative Zen player. Why would I pay more money for fewer GB? I am a little nervous as I don't know anything about them. Thank you in advance for any info sharing <BR> Melissa <BR> Fri, 25 Jul 2008 18:25:27 EST Hi!

Not only is it all about the songs of 1985, but how nowadays its all different -- it tells the story of a woman's dreams for the 80s and how it never went quite as planned. Brilliant.

I myself am a pretty good cook, but there are things I've never eaten before, and ways of cooking things that I've never tried.

What style/color/length did you have? <BR> <BR> In the early 80's it was permed but very short - think Sheena Easton. Then in the mid to late 80's I went to beauty school, grew it out a bit (short bob length), continued to perm it and had an asymetrical cut...oh, and it was burgundy colored. About '89 I dyed it black and grew it out a bit more, so I could hot roll it. <BR> <BR> ... Sun, 30 Mar 2008 10:21:11 EST New to the Group :) Good morning!
