Have you heard of the new movie SING STREET? If not, you are missing out! This is a feel-good, coming of age story written and directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again) featuring the ultimate soundtrack of the 80s.
SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. 
He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band… yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised - calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. 
Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s (ONCE, BEGIN AGAIN) life and love for music, SING STREET shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater. Rated PG-13. Find out where you can purchase your copy of Sing Street on Go Watch It.

  1. Hmm, I was 15 when the 80s started, so I remember all the crazy trends! The hair glitter that came in crazy neon colors was pretty odd, lol. But, I really liked it then. And you had to really try and spike that hair up, too, lol.

  2. Big hair in the 80's lots of hair spray

  3. I like the Off the Shoulder tread of 80s.

  4. I come form the 90's so I wasn't around during that time, but from a search on Google images I'd say my favorite trend is how they did up their hair! Thanks for the chance!

  5. Oh I remember the headbands! Loved wearing them!

  6. THE HAIR!! lol LOVE :) although I usually love it because the pics make me laugh ;)

  7. I love the bright neon colors from the 80s!

  8. I was a little girl in the 80s, but I remember bright colored clothes and pegging our pants.

  9. My favorite 80s' trend is the oversized tops
    Thank You
