I feel like my childhood memories have been consolidated:
I just watched at least 20 Kids Incorporated videos after reading that Fergie (of the Black Eyed Peas) was Stacy Ferguson. I had no idea. Stacy Ferguson was in the uppermost tier of coolness as far as a late '80s girlhood was concerned; her hair was always, always asymmetrical, teased all to hell and with scrunchies involved. I associate her with the cooler sister on Charles in Charge as well as the cooler Sweet Valley twin. (Then Stacey from The Babysitter's Club gets mixed in.) If you were an American girl of the middle class persuasion in 1988, you probably wanted to be either Stacy Ferguson or Jennifer Connelly from The Labyrinth.
I feel like there is such a thing as an "'80s face," like certain stars actually had the right bone structure and fat distribution for that era, and couldn't succeed as well now, no matter their styling. Ryan Lambert had ultimate '80s face. I put David Duchovny in that category too.
Also, I think this is how I learned to dance.
