Life in the early 1980s: Style and politics
Hair yes, Politics no.
I'm going to be honest here. I had very little interest in Politics at this time in my life. This was probably due to my age.
What I do remember is the styles of the 1980's. My hair, make-up, earrings, & even the phone and stereo systems (music) were indicative of a really great decade!
The atmosphere back then was exciting. Everything was possible.
The beginning of "New Wave" & "Punk" music was a fantastic time to experience. Cyndi Lauper, The Clash, Madonna, P.I.L., Prince, Duran Duran...they all were an exciting sign of the times.
I suppose my favorite (and only) political venue of the time was MTV. They got kids interested in everything!!!
MTV was the place to see, hear & learn about the world around us. Life was simpler then. I often miss that.
