Because the 80s didn't have any disco or grunge.

Also, because an actor is the best kind of politician there can be. Maybe he lies, but we sure feel good about it.

Crowded House!

I think the 80s in America where a time where growth seemed possible and war wasn't imminent. It seemed like a quiet, but good time for our country.

I also grew up in the 80's. There was just something so cool about the 80's music and movies. It was a really fun time to grow up, before much of the angst of the early 90s with war and grunge music.

You're forgetting the best part of the 80s.

My music with artists who have stood the test of time.
I met my husband, went to school in Manhattan and graduated from high school and college. No responsibilities...life was good then.

I fell in love with my favorite group that has lasted till now.
