Spoiler for wah wah:
I hate being 24 in the 21st century, this isn't even fair.
Why are you jealous of having memories of the 80s, out of curiosity? I have nostalgic feelings about the 80s because I was a kid then but I don't think it's any better of a decade than the one we're living in now when all is said and done.

It's not my chosen decade, but it seems it was a strange, self-indulgent time to be alive.

For me the 80's had a special air about them that I've not experienced again.

I think it was actually less self-indulgent then than it is now honestly, but it did have an interestingly sharp divide between pop culture and counterculture—much more so than any decade since I think.

That was from all the hairspray.

Yes. I turned fifteen that year and I'd already gotten bit by the music bug about two years prior by that point. It was a lot of fun as far as the music. Hard rock was riding high at the time, with Queensryche leading the way for me as far as my greatest memory of the bands of that era. Unfortunately, it was also the Reagan era and ultra right wing propaganda was at it's height, starting with all of Nancy Reagan's 'Just Say No' bull**** and the so-called "war on drugs". The ONLY thing that was accomplished from that farce was bucketloads of wasteful spending of tax dollars and substantial tax write-offs for wealthy elected officials. Truth be told, it's no wonder why the 90's would take popular music into a darker direction, THANKFULLY! Gen X was definitely the "product" of that environment, and NOT for the better ( )!! Interesting question.

I was 2 yrs old so i don't remember much..

The thing about the 80's i most remember though is the hair style they used and my mom's shoulder pad suits.
