The real 1980's


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, March 29, 2007 9:03 PM (Eastern)

I realize I've been on a Youtube kick lately...it's temporary. It's just that I've only now comprehended that I can see stuff I've not seen in many years.

To quote Margaret Mead: "Thanks to television, for the first time the young are seeing history made before it is censored by their elders."

Youtube is (at least for now) the next logical step in that evolution; it's a library of the television that people have censored in their own memories...or have allowed other people to censor for them.

Real 1980's:



The 1980's we remember, or think that we do:



Okay, I was there. The Smiths' video made them look a lot cooler than they actually were. I'm not knocking it; it's a great video. Still, after all this time...more than twenty years...I can't play The Smiths and feel they represent the period. The Stranglers' odd little song, replete with the kind of fashion people really wore in the 80's...it's more like it.
