I wasn't one, but I did have a parka. Which is basically because in the '70s, everyone did...

Someone put up a photo of these on Facebook. I'm surprised anyone else remembers them. Whenever I mention them, people just give blank looks. Clearly, they never truly lived as a child

I don't remember the coffin box but definitely remember the sweets. They tasted like rock hard chalk. :lol:

Yeah, though apparently the boxes came in different colours.

They were pretty much like shit alphabet sweets. I remember them being really hard too. Like teeth shatteringly hard

I totally used to have one of those. Think it came from the Studio Cards catalog or something like that

80s Eurovision

The second one sounds like a Jim Steinman song.

'80s Eurovision! Anyone remember this? :lol:

A band tipped for bigger things trying to get on the Soft Rock Power Ballads bandwagon craze at the time, whilst simultaneously losing all credibility with their Heavy Metal fanbase.

The band later said that Eurovision basically destroyed their career. I discovered them due to having Brian May produce their album - sometimes a big name association really does bring you in new listeners!
