    If you turn down the sound, what you get is a studio filled with good looking women, in tight clothing, bouncing around. 80s were hot.

    I go to "80s" shows sometimes, and I can tell you that what people think people dressed like in the 80s - even if done as a caricature - is not even close. They do a much better job of 70s and 60s (and 50s for that matter). Again, they're "over done" and using stereotypes/caricatures, but the 80s stuff isn't even close.

    That was the first thing to come to my mind. When MOVIE channels played MOVIES, MUSIC channels played MUSIC, and low production "bouncy filler" kept you from changing the station.

    It was certainly part of the 80s I remember.

    The part we made fun of.

    Unless it was Sheena Easton.
