Is it bad that I have "We are the World" and "Shot through the heart" on my ipod, and that they are on my "25 most played list?":o
Sadly, I was a victim of every one of those fashion..uhh..."situations" and quite regretably, carried on with them into the mid 90's.:yuck:

Melei'sMom May 18th, 2006 11:20 AM

OMG almost everyone of them! I was a teen in the 80's.:o

And yes, now Shot Through The Heart is stuck in my head! :mad:

ANd on special ocasions...the hair can almost border on the big hair...I loved that style!:eek: :D

Sadly I was only 5 when the 80's ended and yet I remember almost all of this. I can still sing the fresh prince of bell air song to this day and I haven't seen that show in over a decade. I still have the scar on my hip from my slip and slid. And i have a really funny story about my LA lights shoes and an amish family. of course I can relate to almost all of them but those are my most memorable.
