With a majority of my formative years falling in what’s affectionately known just as “the 80s”, it should be no surprise that I love that era. I mean, what’s not to love about the decade that brought us the music of both Bon Jovi and Paula Abdul (“Forever Your Girl” and “Livin’ On a Prayer?” Aces.)
Last year when The Goldbergs came out on TV, I was a little beside myself with joy. I watch that show alternating between shouting “yes!” and laughing out loud, because I remember. That striped shirt that Barry often wears? I know people that wore that shirt (big props to the wardrobe folks, by the way).
