124. Partying ''like it's 1999'' seemed SO far away.

125. you had super hero underoos.

126. when somone mentions two consecutive days of the week, the Happy Days theme is stuck in your head for hours on end.

127. you ever watched Fraggle Rock

128. you thought that Transformers were more than meets the eye

129. after you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you couldn't stop saying "I know you are but what am I?"...

130. you hatch plots to break Murdock out of VA hospital

131.  You thought Ferris Bueller had a really good singing voice on that "Twist and Shout" song.

132.  A 5 MB hard disk drive was bigger than you could ever hope to fill.

133.  You remember floppy disks that were actually floppy.

134.  You still can't quite get used to that new guy singing for Van Halen.

135.  "Who you gonna call?"

There were a couple.  "Touch Me" was the most popular one, followed by "I wanna have some fun".

Do not ask me how I remember that.

141.  You see a man trying to show off as macho tough walking around with diamond stud earrings in BOTH ears and think to yourself:

"Buddy, you are making the wrong statement about "swimming to both shores" with that look!"

I was watching the new "Kojak" last night.  Ving Rhames had an earring in his right ear only.  As a child of the 80's...I was confused.

When did earrings lose their meaning?

Apparantly not. I work in a high school and I see boys with either one ear pierced (doesn't seem to matter which one) or more commonly with both ears pierced.

No.
Yes.  I'd post a link to the porn star database, but it wouldn't be appropriate for this forum, so I'll quote from the first paragraph instead:

"One of the all-time porn greats, Porn Star Samantha Fox should not be confused with the vapid mid-80's pop singer of the same name. No, this Samantha Fox was a beautiful brunette sex kitten who starred in over 100 features between 1978 and 1984, establishing herself as one of the top stars in the industry."

The singer, though, did do topless "page three"-type shots, though.  Samantha Fox the singer was British, Samantha Fox the porn star was from New York.

Both Samantha Foxes have IMDB entries:

Samantha Fox the Porn Star
Samantha Fox the Singer

The research for this message was undertaken for the good of the community.  :)


Sorry dude you are wrong.

There may be a porn star with the same name, but the page girl three from the 80's also most definitely sang the previously mentioned songs.

I will wage my left testicle on this.

Yes.

Technically, we're both correct.  I knew of the pr0n star, but since we were talking about the 'singer' and the b00bie picture poster, they were one and the same.  The pr0n star was practically 40 when these songs were popular.
