Here's an emergency 80s play list in case you need one. (You'd be surprised how many people do.) How do I create an 80s play list? Simple. I close my eyes and imagine myself at a dance. When I open my eyes the play list is complete. If you haven't heard, the 80s are totally back in style. Pegged pants are called "skinny jeans" now. As far as I can tell, however, there is no contemporary equivalent for gender-ambiguous hair bands.
