Your Favorite 80s TV Commercials

US Weekly recently shared what they believe to be the five best 80s toy commercials, but are they truly the best? Whether you love the now sort of creepy Cabbage Patch Dolls, or you were really into Shark Attack (“This shark eats like a maniac!”) there was no shortage of commercial jingles to get stuck in your 80s noggin during Saturday morning cartoons. In fact, some of them are still in my head:

The 80s Bands You Know and Love

A friend and I were discussing the hottest 80s bands that still make our hearts flutter, even if we weren't even teens in that time period. She mentioned Warrant, I said Sammy Hagar and we both sighed over Sebastian Bach (Skid Row). Lately I'm all about Loverboy, but Def Leppard can get you in a dancing, making out or simply good mood, too, depending on which song you listen to.

Throwing a Totally Rad 80s House Party

Valentine’s Day is over, St. Patrick’s is coming up and you know what that means… the “official” holiday season is over! That means it’s time for some non-holiday related theme parties, and an 80s house party is one of the best themes. Not only is the playlist already set (use any 80s theme on Spotify or Pandora), but you probably already have the right outfit at home as well. Tease your hair or put on some sunglasses at night and poof, you’re set.
