[quote="robinscruffy"]The Apple 1980! I gonna buy it Very Happy It's like watching a train wreck, it's SO bad but you can't look away Laughing

Well i don't know much about 80s stuff since i was even born then, but lots of cool/funny stuff came from that period Very Happy[/quote]
Robin, I was around in the 80s. It was a crass, arrogant, greedy, self-indulgent decade of awful, self-satisfied smugness illuminated by pink and pastel blue neon.

But it was [b]never[/b] as ghastly as that movie trailer. Wink

[quote="JohnnyBoy"][quote="hackersmovie"][b]Who sang "She's like the wind"?[/b][/quote]
I can't remember and it's driving me nuts. No, that's not a band, that's my predicament.

[quote="hackersmovie"][b]August 1, 1981 MTV played their very first music video. Name the song and artist.[/b][/quote]
If memory serves, it was "Video Killed The Radio Star" by The Buggles.[/quote]


CORRECT! MTV's first video ever played on air = "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the "Buggles"


first question is still up for grabs....

My first thought was "Chariots of Fire" Embarassed but that is not exactly a "Brat Pack " movie and it was from 1981.

We have the DVD

Most of our movies are older though, from the 40s, 50s, 60s etc.

The 80s was a decade that went by so fast (and most would say that was a good thing) Laughing
