LIFE Book’s latest endeavor, “The ‘80s: Remembering a Wild and Crazy Time,” will hit newsstands on Feb. 1 across the United States. With no other decade more influenced by world events, this 112-page soft-back book is an absolute must have for any 80s enthusiast.
The 80s was the MTV generation. In conjunction with the 24-hour broadcast of music videos, television shows like Dynasty and Miami Vice set the tone of fashion…scary fashion. The 80s was also a time of decadence, with a mantra of “The bigger, the better,” which influenced both lifestyles and hairstyles … on a grand scale.
Along with the aforementioned influencers of 80s fashion and lifestyle, this was a decade filled with groundbreaking history. The fall of the Berlin Wall, which broke the divide between the oppressive German Democratic Republic and freedom in West Berlin. And Live Aid, a concert held simultaneously at Wembley Stadium in London, and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, which brought the world’s attention to the famine crisis in Ethiopia.
The years from 1980 through 1989 changed our society and culture. Thumbing through LIFE Book’s latest endeavor, “The ‘80s: Remembering a Wild and Crazy Time,” is an amazing peek at your parent’s generation or an exciting trip down memory lane.
