The 80's were full of good times, big hair and outrageous style.  80's fashion has turned into
                        an event itself....Do you remember parachute pants, Vans, Jordache Jeans, the Izod shirt
                        (that irresistible little alligator!) OP (Ocean Pacific),rat-tails, Mohawks, and spiked hair?
What about Penny Loafers, Ralph Lauren Polo Shirts, Espadrilles, Chinos, and leg warmers?  Add colorful mascara (my personal favorite was teal green), banana clips, big earrings, fingerless gloves and Swatch watches (worn several at a time) and you have a TOTALLY 80's look!   

Music was a BIG part of our memories  overshadowing much of world events in our minds.  The Class of 1982 started High School in the fall of 1978.  The last graduating class of the 70's was the seniors and the 80's were just around the corner for us to claim and make them our own . . . Here is a compilation of music lists (some overlap from year to year) and world events and other assorted memories.  Have fun wandering down Memory Lane! I did!

This is a list of important events the occurred during 1978. Exact dates are listed when known.

         Indira Gandhi Expelled From Parliament- Indira Gandhi was expelled from Parliament after being indicted on a charge of election fraud. She was ordered arrested, but was quickly released. On January 3, the Congress party, of which she had been one of the founders, also expelled her.
         In a bizarre cult display, Jim Jones and over 900 followers drink Kool-Aid spiked with cyanide in a mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana.
        First test tube baby born (Louise Brown) - Invitro fertilization
        Camp David Accords  "Framework for Peace" in the Middle East - Egypt, Israel and the US met in the presidential retreat in Maryland to hammer out a peace agreement between the two leaders.
         Angered by land and other government reforms, Muslim fundamentalists spark riots in Iran and demand removal of the Shah. After failed attempts at appeasement, martial law is imposed.
         Ultrasound first used
         U.S. Senate approves Panama Canal neutrality treaty (March 16); votes treaty to turn canal over to Panama by year 2000.
         Sandinista Guerillas Seize Hostages - Sandinista Guerillas captured the National Palace in Managua. They seized 1,500 hostages, including members of the legislature. The hostages were released when the Somoza government agreed to the release of 59 political prisoners.
         Pope Paul VI, dead at 80, mourned (Aug. 6); new Pope, John Paul I, 65, dies unexpectedly after 34 days in office (Sept. 28); succeeded by Karol Cardinal Wojtyla of Poland as John Paul II (Oct. 16).
         Apple introduces the Apple II, the first computer in a beige plastic case and first to display color graphics. Priced at $1,298.
         Garfield the Cat is syndicated
         Love Canal in New York declared federal disaster
         Texas Instruments Inc. introduces Speak 'n' Spell, a teaching toy incorporating digital speech.
        Philips and Sony unveil the music CD.
        CompuServe begins offering dialup services to the public.
         Arcade Video game 'Space Invaders' released, starting a video game craze that has continued ever since. In 1979 Atari's Asteroids proved incredibly popular - one notable improvement over Space Invaders was that it allowed the players to record hi-scores, for other players to spend hours trying to beat. By 1982 many of the 'classics' had been released, defender and pac-man, to name a few. The industry was worth $5 billion a year - more than the U.S. movie industry. Although Pong, of 1973, and similar games had been around for several years none were really interesting enough to capture the public - Space Invaders, however, had everything, in a fast action game that pitted you against the computer.
