I could never afford Chess King as a teen; I think I ended up with the Macy's versions of the same thing -- many "Bugle Boy" and "Badge" labels in my closet during those days. However, I did own genuine Capezio shoes, in white and gray. EEK!

What Not To Wear: 80s Edition. However, one can pull off so many mistakes when one is under 21.

Also: I much preferred Spandau Ballet. I am being sincere.

Joe - And don't forget Oak Tree and J. Riggings! Yes, I was much more a Spandau Ballet fan, but I loved Kajagoogoo just for being so unapologetically ridiculous. Back in the day, I told myself that Spandau Ballet was the thinking person's Duran, Duran.

You can come and steal all my junk whenever you want.
Chelsea is such fun.
Let us know when you are next going to be here.
The NEUE GALERIE is one of my favorite places
since I'm half German....

They should team up with Lady-Gaga and do a GoogooGaGa tour!

Robert - Brilliant idea. Perhaps they could sing "La La La Means I Love You".

And let's not forget Foxmoor Casuals and Ups And Downs for the ladies...and Merry-Go-Round for everybody!

Salty - Makes me want to rush out for an Orange Julius.

Kajagoogoo will be playing in London on Wednesday 30 September 2009.

Too shy shy
Hush hush, eye to eye

Bryce - Aren't they doing the soundtrack for the big screen version of "Unicorn Planet"?

Oh, Chess King! I had a fantastic jacket from there when I was a skinny teen. Funny Joe should mention Spandau Ballet, I listened to them just last night.

Gary - Any night is a good night for Spandau Ballet. I especially like "Only When You Leave".
