1985. I had REALLY big hair, a husband and WAS ruling the world. No graph needed for me

Pat Tillett said...

Oh yeah! Now all have the music in my head for the rest of the evening...

Totally crushing on the Tears for Fears reference. I will be humming that song for the next 48 hours. Enjoy the day!

Marnie said...

This perfectly sums up 1985!

Melinda said...

I was two years old in 1985. And I still got the reference. I must have been a seriously advanced baby.

It took me a while, I'm that old. I loved Tears for Fears, though. I used to love Gary Coleman too when he was a cute kid. Kimberly, though, talk about annoying!

Nicole said...

Why yes, I believe you got that one right! ;-) 85 was a good year..
Wait.. that song from Bowling for Soup has entered my brain..

Connie said...

Wow! It's been a while since I've heard this song. 1985 - a good year.
Gary Coleman...RIP

Lisa Loo said...

I think I was too busy getting married--I missed this show and the song so I am lost on this graph. Dang...I hate it when that happens.......

I think the 80's were stranger than the 60's, mostly because of the clothes, the music, the hair, hippies became yuppies - did I mention the clothes??

Speaking of ruling the world and the late 80's...I gave my church kids the line of a song to make actions for. The line was "Be true, be true & stand for the right!" The end of their "actions" resulted in the heil Hitler sign the Nazi's used. This totally made me giggle in the middle of church!!! Reading your graph and thinking of the Berlin wall coming down in 1989 brought the giggle right back.

Did I get this? I think so, but you never know.

imbeingheldhostage said...

80's. SO before my time (cough cough)

Teachinfourth said...

Welcome to your life...

MiMi said...

Now I have both those songs stuck in my head! How does one get TWO songs stuck in their head?!

lifeshighway said...

Ahhh song worm. True but still...

Corrina Terry said...

I was 15 in '85. LOVED that Tears for Fears song (and even saw them in concert that year!!!) ;o)

Watched Different Strokes too. I still want to adopt kids because of it!

Flea said...

I believe I was, and always will be, in the red on this one.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Definitely Everybody Wants to... Also on the Real Genius soundtrack.

T said...

1985... ummm... I think I was still sporting my lilac sneakers and discovered boys... at which point I had to give up the lilac sneakers.

Lourie said...

But the Facts of Life are all about you!

Hart Johnson said...

Now you just need to put big hair on that puppy... can't REALLY be an 80s graph without big hair...

Impulsive Addict said...

This may or may not be before my time. Ha!


(I'm soooo in the green)

Debbie said...

So clever! And I'm old enough to understand it.

Kelley said...

You are so funny! You just made a whole slew of songs enter my mind and I thank you. I don't thank you for writing a post that would make me use the word "slew" in the comments, however.

blueviolet said...

I remember them both but Tears For Fears takes it for me.

Pearl said...

Yes, as I recall that was about right.
