Blast from the Past - do you remember?


Recommended Posts

You know when you hear a little bit of a song or a catchphrase from a to show that you haven't heard in years, so long that you'd forgotten that you'd ever even forgotten it in the first place, and BAM! You instantly remember the whole thing? And then it starts to drive you nuts coz you can't remember who the actors were or how the second verse went... :D 

 

Well that happened to me today. The bf says to me, in a semi-singing way, "Wake up in the morning wanting some breakfast" and instantly I'm transported back to my youth and this tv ad:

 

 

 

Which then had me racking my brain to find the real lyrics, so off I went to Google and found this:

 

 

At which point I still had no fecking clue what the lyrics were and had to go and google them too. :D:D:D 

 

 

I'd love it if people would post up some old songs, or TV ads or programs (or anything else of the like) that are a real Blast from the Past. I though it would be quite fun to see or hear all those oldies that we'd forgotten about. Anyone want to join in? :)

Oh man! I stumbled across the sequels! I had totally forgotten about these, but they were so funny. I thought I'd share this one with you.

I've never done lsd, but I imagine that's something like what they mean when they say that you see the music in colours!

Oh my God! I remember this, not very well so I'm assuming it wasn't a long running thing? Good grief!

That reminds me of this tv show from when I was a kid.  The only vid I could find of the opening credit had an ad at the start (Boo!) so you get a whole episode.  Do with it what you will. ;)

We introduced Colin's kids to Inspector Gadget a little while ago and the love it!  I thought it would be boring compared to what they watch nowadays but they really enjoyed it, they also loved this....

 

 

 

Which is all about a family of Loch Ness monsters.  Which is only 25(ish?) miles from where I lived back home. :)

My childhood was awesome. Some of these get me nostalgic almost to the point of tears.

@Wolfen - we are obviously the same age, I watched all of those shows. 

 

I'm 37. But no way we're the same age! You look younger, seriously, like barely 30!
