The 1980’s Dream

Life in the 80’s has been said to be one of the greatest decades of all time. The best movies were made in the 80’s like, The Breakfast Club, Stand By Me, The Goonies, Ghostbusters, and many more amazing movies. The fashion status was crazy and the music was the coolest.

The 80’s were the best because of basically everything. Not everyone had to worry as much as they do now. In the year of 2018, there are already so many riots and horrible things going on.

Living in the 80’s seemed to be so much better. It seemed better because no one was on their phone the whole day, because what were cellphones at the time? They weren’t a thing besides a big, thick phone with a long antenna. There was no texting, yet only talking when your parents would allow it. Kids would get together and hang out like normal children. Children now just stay on their phones and are on the internet most of the day. The fashion back then, was bright colored and bold. Walking around the town was a bigger thing to do instead of driving short distances. The best heartthrobs of the 80’s like Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe, Robert Downey Jr, Jennifer Grey, and Patrick Dempsey were all over the television screen whenever their new show or movie would pop on. The 80’s were just simply amazing. There are too many reasons as in to why the 80’s are better than today’s era. The best movies, songs, and television shows were released in the 80’s and living back then would have been great.
