    The decade I'd Hot Tub Time Machine back to in a second if I could!

    The Music!

    UTFO – Roxanne, Roxanne! The rise of fun rap diss battles that garnered something like 2 dozen response tracks and started the infamous Bridge Wars.

    Doug E. Fresh & MC Slick Rick – The Show!

    Rick James – Super Freak!…super freak, super junkie, super entertainer, super lady beater. Rick was a whole lot of super.

    Queen and David Bowie – Under Pressure! Freddie and David together.

    The Police – Every Breath You Take! Perhaps the greatest creepy stalker song of all time.

    Madonna – Into The Groove! She may not hold the same appeal today but she ruled the 80's into the 90's

    Michael Jackson – Beat It! The pop King of the 80's.

    Linda Clifford – Red Light! Watching the late Gene Anthony Ray in this scene, he was a sexy dude back then and that is how we barely dressed in the early 80's in NY.

    The Movies!

    @alton the Jets are under appreciated now. Crush On You was the $#!+

    80s music has so many layers to it. Guitar/keyboard/sax solos, breakdowns, real bridges…

    Yeah, I'm a big 80's music fan. Punk, Hip Hop, R&B, all of it. So much of it was so bad it was good. LOL
