Even those of us who missed the 80’s absorbed it through the music our parents listened to and the movies they watched. For me the nostalgia with these songs is strong because in highschool I used to do long road trips down the west coast from the pines of the pacific Northwest to the palm trees of Los Angeles, (stopping at Mammoth Mountain to shred some powder) and for some reason it was 80’s hits all the way.
80’s had “epic” on lock and for millennials it brings back the forgotten smells and cultural texture of our childhood (and every unforgettable beach party ever). Just like Stranger Things, it makes me think of a time before cell phones and social media - an era practically as far behind us as the horse and buggy. This has been our first “throw back” playlist, hope you enjoy!
