The new survey by an online sweets firm ?A Quarter Of...? has revealed that a third of people were at their happiest in the 80s and thought that life was better and simpler at the time.

Live Aid concert in 1985 was what made the eighties so popular, followed by Queen and frontman Freddie Mercury, ITV satire Spitting Image and the Rubik?s Cube, reports the Daily Star.

1. Live Aid

2. Rubik?s Cube

3. Pac-Man

4. Filofax

5. Dirty Dancing

6. The Goonies

7. Penny mix

8. Grange Hill

9. Dayglo

10. Spitting Image (ANI)

I'd say this counts as decisive evidence that Britons are insane.

how Grange Hill is in there i dont know,that started in the mid 70's [tucker jenkins anyone?] and im sure i had a rubiks cube in the late 70's too *ponders the thought*

anyway,this was obviously voted for by yuppies from the 80's that have gone bankrupt and spend all day on facebook now as the average British man/woman in the street would NEVER mention the word 'filofax' in a list as we never had one!

for the average joe the 80's were filled up with Thatcher The Snatcher doing her best to ruin everything that was 'great' about Britain and mass Capitalism and screw the ones that couldnt afford it and they moan now that gas and electric prices are so steep!
nice to see Spitting Image in there though,it really is time for that to return to our screens again


isnt innuendo an italian suppository?

im gonna ride the wild wind!
