Top Five Friday

This weekend, my cousins and I are having an 80's dance party of sorts to learn the sweet moves from this video:

Completely epic, is it not? As were the outfits:

So this week I thought I would share my top five favorite things from the 80's. Granted, I only lived in the 80's for three short years, but they were quite meaningful years.

1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Seriously, peeps. They were the shiz. To this day I still know their theme song by heart.
2. The game MASH (mansion apartment shelter house). Please tell me you played this with your friends at school. 

3. This video. It seriously revolutionized all things music video. It was the deepest desire of my heart at one point to learn all the moves and perform them in a public setting. Maybe someday... Live on, Michael.

4. The hair. More specifically the hair on 80's rock bands. More specifically 80's rock bands in general. I realize that's not very specific.

5. Seriously, this list could go on for days. There were so many great things about this time. My cousins would be disappointed if I didn't mention this one though. The Skip-it. I have no idea why we played with these things. They were a dang hazard. Someone's ankle was always inevitably maimed. And they always hit you right on the bone where it hurt. I still think the theme song is amazing though. "And the very best thing of all, there's a counter on this ball!"

Thanks for reading! And for all of you 80's lovers out there, I have this to say:

"Wax on, wax off."
