Top Of The Pops Logo Hoodie

Black hoodie with Neon Top of the Pops Logo

If you were to ask me to name just one TV programme that I really miss from the 80s, then I would have to say Top of the Pops. Although those times have gone forever, sadly, you can still pay homage to the show with this awesome Top of the Pops 80s logo hoodie

Of all the logos used during the series, this neon logo is my absolute favourite. It was replaced in 1986 with some new-fangled orange and blue thing (which I hated!), which seemed to conincide with the music charts slowly deteriorating, too. The 70s and the first half of the 80s was definitely the best time to be watching the show, for sure, and the sheer exitement of waiting to watch your favourite bands (even if they were miming!) was something I really miss.

This logo is pretty iconic, and looks pretty awesome on this hoodie, more particularly the charcoal or black one which makes it stand out, although there is a nice choice of other colours. It's available from Etsy in unisex sizes from Small to XX-Large. Keeping the weight off is certainly not easy when you're in your 50s, so I certainly need the XL size these days!

A similar hoodie but with an all blue logo can be bought from TeePublic.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an
