There was some grit but overall everything was on the upswing, bright neon colors, big hair, powerful love ballads. Not to mention that for people in my age bracket (presumably yours as well), it was what was "cool" when we were little - the culture of the adults we admired and sought to imitate. I think we have both a sense of laughing at its ridiculousness because we have a sense of removal from it and embracing its high points because it's close enough to still feel familiar and safe.
    Eeeeenteresting.

    Although I was alive during most of the 80s, I never got or felt the Zeitgeist (I was too young/not observant/sheltered something).

    That was most informative.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped

    Well, thank you! It is just my impression, but I think it's halfway decently representative of how a fair amount of my peers tend to feel about it.
