My favorite year of all time! I was born in 1978, so I have very fond memories of 1989.
I was ten, going on eleven, and the Super Mario Bros. Super Show Debuted on the USA Network and I watched it RELIGIOUSLY after a class mate of mine told me about it.
My family and I moved from Hawaii to Arizona that year. In fact, I remember the hotel, room number and day we flew from Hawaii. It was on Thursday, October 19th, 1989 and we were at the Waikiki Resort Hotel, in room 2009. YAY! ROOM 2009 will always be a part of my cherished childhood.
I got a Nintendo Entertainment System (8 Bit) on by 11th Birthday that year and we celebrated my birthday at my maternal grandparents' house before we headed off to Arizona.
Good times, good times.

and passafire jewlery (what was the big deal with binkies becoming trendy?) and shoelace barettes.
It started off from the movie "Boyz In the Hood" when one of the guys in th emovie always was seen sucking on a passifier(sp) then everyone after the movie started doing it. Yeah, I even had a real one and one of those hard to ones you wore around your neck.
1989...I was a Junior in high school. HUGE hair, Aqua-Net, acid wash, Def Leppard's Hysteria, New Kids on the Block, getting lit on Sun Country wine coolers (they had 2 liter bottles so I shared with my friends)... Seeing all the kids here born in the 80's I feel OLD, but the late 70's and the 80's were great times to grow up! I can remember a time where we didn't have cable, we still had LPs, the only computers were at school (well, unless you had that crazy Texas Instruments hook up at home) and things just seemed a lot more simple IMO.
Wow, I was born in 1976. I also suffer from CRS (can't remember shit). But it doesn’t help that all of the pictures my family took were on the original Polaroid’s so they are all warped. That and the fact that my mother was really young at the time and hopped up on something so she now she doesn’t remember much. But man i would have loved to have graduated in the 80's. Good times man, good times! Oh, and as for the "poll" on drinking- 1989 for me.
The year 1989: I was 12 years old and enjoying the last moments of my childhood before I turned 13 years old in 1990. I was in 7th grade at the time. 1989 was the last good year for cartoons for me. I was also skateboarding a lot. I started buying CDs during that time as well. And I was watching FOX shows like The Simpsons, Married With Children, 21 Jumpstreet and others.
I was born in early 1985. And the funny thing is I was born between the release of Ghostbusters movie in 84 and the year before The Real Ghostbusters cartoon in 86 came out. That was awesome time to born and I was able to watch most of things that were on Tv and that as well. I also missed the 80s period, too.
I was born in the 89, sure i know it was far too late but i did how ever get to see some of the great shows, i wish i had lived more of the 80s because i find anythin from 1977 to 1994 really interesting, good TV shows, great video games and etc, i really like the 80s.
is there any one around the same age as me in here, i had already said it but i will say it again
I wished i got to live more of the 80's away.
I also collect retro toys like Lego, rock em shock em robots G I Joes and etc, not that i play with them I just want to fill the space of the stuff i missed out on. also i havea large collection of classic retro video games
also i think the 80s are so Rad.
I agree, 1977-1994 were some great years. The 1980s are cool, but I sorta prefer the 1990s since I actually remember them.
