Was it during their 'stadium' phase or before?

Re: What is the '80s

Underneath the autumn sky,
Haltingly, the lines go by.
Ah, would steps were blithe and gay,
As when first they marched away,
Smile on lip and curl on brow--
Only white-faced gray-beards now,
Standing on life's outer verge,
E'en the marches sound a dirge.

1991 is as close to the eighties you get.

Re: What is the '80s

In response to the thread title that OP put, the 1980s was a decade that began on January 1, 1980, and ended on December 31, 1989. I hope that helps.

Well done.

I was going more for the milieu, but the minimalist approach works well.

Re: What is the '80s

Are those people in the snow in the "Life in a Northern Town" video someone famous? In England maybe? Because I had to look carefully to see if they weren't my mom and dad, and I'm still not sure. Probably just the hairstyle and clothing mostly. It wasn't Queen Elizabeth was it? My mom looked like her.

Looked? Sorry. I am fairly certain that you are a bit too young to have to describe mom in the past tense. I'd guess that they are just random English folk. Blocky women and skinny men is norm in northern England and northern states in the US.

I liked this for a bit: and had the hair before it became popular. I had the same player piano as shown in the video for a bit. Super hi-fidelity!!!

His hotels are not so bad.

She passed several years ago. My dad was typically stockier than that guy.

Re: What is the '80s

Teen-angst anthem self-consciously grounded in US sensibilities circa 1958:

Vacuously optimistic and instantly forgettable belter:

Irritating novelty song:

This*:

Popular music feeling its way back towards overt sexuality:


I feel like that about covers it, really.

*Technically 1990 but w/ever.
