My favourites from the 80’s

My Pal, A Guy Called Bloke, has posted about his love of the 1980’s (see post below)


So I decided to put together my own favourite films/movies and some music from the 80’s you may have heard of them, you may not, have a look and see what you think.

You may detect a slightly childish edge to the films, that is because I was a child in the 80’s, so no surprise there.

Movies first – In no particular order:

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Time Bandits

A room with a view

Back to the Future (1, 2 and 3)

Music from the 80’s

So that is a list of some of my favourites.

Were there any you particularly liked or hated?

Any that you didn’t know?

Hope you enjoyed this post, it took ages to put together 😉

  1. A brilliant batch of memories in this post Kristian 🙂

    I read an article the other day that suggested the likes of the Monty python crew cleese, Palin and the gang were no longer considered funny and/as that humour was so much better these days we didn’t need to relive this part of our history. just another bash of history which is sad. We all have a past, present and future and this is what makes us the people we are. We lived and learned from our past. recently Benedict Cumberbatch said “It’s how you respond to failure that’s so important. If you can’t fail, you can learn and improve” which l find so apt with parts of societies regard to our History.

    As kids we learned a lot from the music and the films, the fashion and the passion of a cosmopolitan culture it’s symbolically what makes us into the examples of human we are today.

    I remember going to see Time Bandits and laughing my socks off at the bawdy caperish humour, l remember thinking deeply with a Room with a View, and being Indiana Jones, and the list went on. With films as with both books and music it allows you to escape into a fantasy it can curve your enthusiasm and increase your motivation and to simply celebrate what the world has to offer.

    Excellent batch once more with the music – job well done, the only parting comment l guess would be this …You may detect a slightly childish edge to the films, that is because I was a child in the 80’s, so no surprise there…. are you suggesting you grew up? Many a time l don’t like adulting and l can’t even stand that term lol!

    Superb post my friend 🙂
