The latest list show by Mental Floss is 80 facts about the ’80s, which some are fascinating items and unforgettable; others were strange moments of the time.
In the mid-’80s, the crimping iron gained popularity to create a bedhead look. Boomboxes were common and sometimes heavy. Rick Springfield told us about “Jessie’s Girl” (video). And the shock that it cost half a million dollars on Eddie Murphy’s 1985 album How Could It Be with the top single “Party All The Time” (video) featuring Rick James.
Join host John Green in this list show for more facts from the ’80s such as Bon Jovi putting “Livin’ On A Prayer” as a hidden track, Rainbow Brite, Beastie Boys and more.
