My Birthday, My Year: 1984

So I am kind of celebrating Gag just gave me a message that I won a 25 dollar gift card for Mytakes that I did for a month. It is pretty cool and I wanted to give back today partly because of that but also because I have the time to do it. So here are some highlights from the year that I was born :) and I want to do a shout out to some gaggers to do there own.

1984

Movies:

Gremlins

I love this movie, it takes place during Christmas which Christmas horror is pretty fun and it just has innocence, mayhem and silliness all wrapped up into one movie

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

Ghostbusters

This is another classic, it is probably the best ghost movie ever made, the right amount of humor, the right amount of seriousness, and the respect and believability of the source material

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

Neverending story

It is such an amazing movie and so filled with wonder and fantasy. It also really helps a person to find their meaning, that each persons choices effect things greater than themselves

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

The Last Starfighter

This to me is a movie about finding a second chance at life when where you are at seems to be nowhere, it is finding your niche and your significance in a big world

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

Music:

Footloose-Kenny Loggins

Classic dance song and a great radio hit from 1984

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

Oh Sherrie- Steve Perry

Classic Steve Perry that I can't get out of my head

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

One Love- Bob Marley

This is just my heart and just a great feeling song

My Birthday, My Year: 1984

Neverending Story -Limahl

Yeah this is cheating so sue me and also Ghostbusters with Ray Parker Jr. Would have been a great pick too but I just love this song and I get so lost in it

    Never Ending Story was pretty good, but the theme song is SO ANNOYING.

    Wow! So many good things happened in the year 1984! Just a year after my sister was born. :o

    Ghostbusters is one of my favourite movies, but I have yet to watch Gremlins! I have listened to One Love by Bob Marley before, I loved it. I have played Duck Hunt and ExciteBike so many times! I still play them but sadly on my phone as I do not have a video game anymore. I enjoy playing those games so much, especially Duck hunt even though the dog loves to mock me, lol.

    I didn't know DNA Fingerprinting Was developed in 1991. Neither did I know that Sony and Philips introduced their first commercial CD players. That is SO cool! No wonder you have made a Take about it!

    Congratulations, JJ!!!

    You could actually just beat Duck Hunt by shining a flashlight into the gun and pulling the trigger. Loads of fun!

    For me the most memorable thing about 1984 is the classic book.
