What is 1989?
The year the internet was invented.
The end of synthesizer-abusing music.
The end of female singers singing terribly.
The end of out-of-focus music videos that used horrid speccial effects and made no sense.
The end of 1988.
Hooray for the 1989!
The year in which the Berlin Wall fell, and the eighties ended.
Aaaawww, th eighties ruled so much and now the is a reccession after an economic boom. Translation? Everyone gets poorer (or does not make as much money)
The year you use in reference to something that you have not done in a while.
Usually, almost always an exaggeration.
Do you want to go to the movies?
Okay, I haven't gone since 1989
