The 80's!!

A bit of a laugh to be had here. Next week, I've got a local dj gig where it's a birthday party with an 80's theme.!!
It's fancy dress & they've insisted yours truly dons some 80's gear as well!

So, as I am but a mere young'un & can just about remember those ancient times - honest - I wonder if anyone has any ideas- I'm thinking maybe along the lines of shell suit, frankie says relax tshirt, mullet wig, leg-warmers that sort of thing. Bearing in mind I'm about 6ft2 & fairly skinny!!

Pics of any suggestions would be great & the madder the better.

Also suggestions of class 80's songs as well.

And I promise, when i've got sorted next week, I will post a full length - yes full length - piccy of me in my 'outfit'.

Rock on!!

The 80's (my era) was a game of two halves as they say. Wish i was coming.

Early 80's was new romantic Duran, Spandau, Human League, Visage, etc

Late eighties was a bit more dance orientated.

Some absolute classic songs from then but also some of the worst/cheesiest.

best were Dexy's, Specials, Madness, Bowie, UB40, Simple Minds, Billy Idol, Blondie, etc

worst were Culture Club, Wham(IMO)

This may help
