From The Daily Star
There Must Be An Angel by Eurythmics has been voted the best song of the 1980’s by a survey undertaken by fashion empire M&S (Marks and Spencers) :
BRITS have been digging out their shoulder pads and snacking on Arctic roll because we’re stuck in a 1980s time warp. We still long for food, telly, music, clothes and films from the huge hair decade.
A survey found ice-cream dessert Wall’s Viennetta, telly hit Blackadder, time travel movie Back To The Future and the synthesiser pop pair Eurythmics are still much-loved.
We are so obsessed by the 80s, one in 10 of us has even kept hold of our video cassette recorders. And more than three-quarters of women wear styles such as hoop earrings and leg-warmers from the decade taste forgot.
Research for M&S Money found the favourite show from the era was Blackadder, closely followed by Only Fools & Horses and Blind Date. And the nation’s favourite tune from the decade was There Must Be An Angel, by Eurythmics, followed by Foreigner’s I Want To Know What Love Is and Duran Duran’s A View To A Kill.
M&S Money boss Colin Kersley said: “Many elements of 80s culture have lasted the test of time. “People are keeping the 80s alive by holding on to fashions, entertainment and household favourites. “While life has moved on over the last 25 years, people are obviously still attached to the things that mean something to them – whether that’s a favourite jacket or a record player that still works perfectly.
“My personal favourite from the 80s is the first series of Blackadder, which I have on video and will keep for ever – even though I no longer own a video player!”
