Were you an 80s girl? Did you eat, sleep, and breathe for mix tapes, your bi-level haircut, and at least one of the guys in the Brat Pack. Did you dance around to Madonna, Prince, and Culture Club music on a huge boom box in your room? Dream of owning a Pretty in Pink Karmann Ghia. Fantasize about landing a guy with Sodapop’s looks and Steff’s money, who could also deliver a kiss like the one Keith landed on Watts?
