4. Hammer pants.
Now that we’re all so obsessed with super-skinny slacks, leggings, and — ugh — jeggings, the age of stiff shoulders and baggy-as-all-get-out drawers seems like a fond memory. Oh, how we long for the days when pants weren’t pants unless they dragged along the sidewalk.
7. Big movies with bigger theme songs.
What happened to big summer blockbusters with just-as-big summer anthems? If remembering the chart-topping tunes from Space Jam, Men in Black, and Wild Wild West is any indication, then A) this trend really needs to make a modern-day comeback, and B) Will Smith really needs to start rapping about every movie he’s in again.
Sure, it’s great having every song ever recorded ever accessible from the magical device in our back pocket, but there’s a special something that comes from hand-written cassette tapes that got lost along the way. Besides, it’s near impossible to slip an MP3 into your crush’s locker.
