We Love The 80s
Daddies not in work today
Maggie took our milk away
And the bigger kids from down the street
Don't know where to put themselves.

There was another power cut before,
I hope there isn't anymore,
Cause my big brother laughs at me
When it goes dark, I cry.

Okay okay, its not much....I have a the beginings of the music to this, but its hard to write the words. Anyone who was a british kid in the 80s, I would appreciate your insights, seeing as I only have a few lines so far, just remembering things my parents have told me about that time. Entheon told me a few months back to write about what I know, but I know that if I were to do that, I'd keep churning out angsty songs about boys that treated me bad and falling in love and crap like that

The 80s are sleighted by many, but I also think it was a fairly creative period: new romantics and rock music stand out to me. Then there were all the dodgy clothes: drain pipe kecks, futuristic hairstyles, fashion victims, legwarmers (and women really thought they looked cool!) etc... Was also a very interesting time computerwise - lots of competing technologies back then. VHS vs Betamax, so and so has a Sony Walkman or a CD player.

I ate a lot of burgers in the 80s (woe is me, I think I'll get BSE!)

I don't really remember too much about the 80s to be honest, it all gets a bit hazy, but I definately had a good time. Biker gangs, rock nights, and crazy biker parties on Southport beach. Everyone in a band believed they would 'make it'. There was the miners strike, race riots in Liverpool. Yea, milk disappeared from doorsteps alright 

Not much help really I'm afraid!!

Poison perfume
Yeh, must mention that. There was an outbreak of perfume called 'Poison' (was that the late 80s?). Really knocked your socks off...
