    Love it I loved the 80's and I have a guilty pleasure of listening to Absolute 80's every time I am in the house and in the car.

    Love the 80's so much I could do with the time machine to go back when things were great in Great Britain.

    @Ichiban no doubt the 1980s were the best decade...I have an epic 80s playlist on Spotify! 131 fantastic songs to take me back to my youth...:Grin:

    Mrs Zebster is a massive fan of everything eighties and, like CJ, listens to Absolute 80s whenever possible. Unfortunately, I didn't much care for the 80s; the fashions, music, politics and ever-present threat of nuclear war all ruined it for me! I much preferred the 70s...

    The threat of nuclear war just gave the decade that 'certain something' didn't it...:Laughing:

    I went to university in 1990. The clubs were already doing 80s nights...never 60s or 70s nights. :excited::dance:

    Anyway, what more could you want from a decade than Thatcher in Number 10, Reagan in The White House and The Thompson Twins or Dexys on the radio?

    Oh, right...now I'm starting to get it!

    :lol:

    Haha... Yuppies buying Porsches and otherwise flaunting their undeserved wealth is also a grim memory. The threat of nuclear war was just about tolerable, until Frankie Goes to Hollywood started 'singing' about it...

    BTTF films I can take or leave, but I love 80's music. Right, where's the keys to the Capri?...........

    The mother of one of my school friends had a 1980 'V' (I think) metallic green 3.0 litre Capri 'S' - with a graduated 'S' down the sides at the bottom of the doors.

    It was fantastic!

    Not sure if this will work, but this is an attempt to post a link to my Spotify 1980s playlist...:Grin:

    Sod that modern rubbish, I bought some cassettes earlier on in the year. I listen to 80's music on an 80's format.

    Oh dear God, nostalgia is making cassettes and Ford Capris appear attractive. I despair!

    Music died in 1978, when disco took over from punk...

    Has it got a cassette player or an 8-track?

    It's got a cassette with AM/MW radio. No FM, so I can't even run an FM modulator lol.

    EDIT: bizarrely, it's got an auto electric aerial???

    Strange logic from Ford there.
