Pink Challenge

Lacie put a challenge out there to find and discuss something pink. At first I thought this would be hard to narrow down to one thing, since I love all things pink and have a daughter who also loves pink. I thought and thought. Then I thought a little bit more before it hit me. The best high school, poor girl meets rich boy, teenage angst riddled movie almost ever(See below). And it has John Cryer as Duckie (I don't like him now, but thought he was pretty funny then). Best of all it's PINK! And PRETTY!

Along with the movie, there was the soundtrack filled with alternative (80s style) songs. Who can forget OMD, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Smiths, INXS, New Order and The Psychedelic Furs? Ah, the memories. I had the cassette and thought I was so cool. Emphasis on thought.

Let's just take a moment and reflect on how cool Molly Ringwald was. She spoke for a generation of preteen and teenage girls. I guess she was the Hanna Montana and Hilary Duff of the 80s. Maybe. Remember Sixteen Candles? Oh. My. Goodness. Teenage classic!

Then there's The Breakfast Club. The Jock, The Geek, The Loser, The Popular Girl and The Nobody. High School pretty much summed up in 2 hours. I remember I saw this at the movie theater on a date. I have no memory of who the guy was, but of course, I remember the movie. The Simple Minds song, "Don't You Forget About Me" was our senior song. So cool. Yep.

I like to imagine these actors frozen in time, in all their 80s fabulousness, because then I'm still right there with them. At least in my mind.

  3. I just loved this movie, in fact, I thinks it's only been a couple months since I last saw it! I used to fawn over the scene at the end with Duckie (sp) and Ringwald realized they liked each other! Awww the memories!
