A-Z Challenge: K- KISS, The Karate Kid, and Knickers!

Back for another day of 80s A-to-Z, this time with the letter K:

Famous in the seventies and still going strong in the 80s, KISS was one of my fav bands from childhood.

"Wax on, wax off," is still probably one of the most famous lines from this movie all this time later.

And look:  You can buy theme here!
And knickers:  the predecessors to capris, which ended right below the knees and were most-liekly named such because they looked like baseball pants, as seen by a team such as the knickerbockers. No laughing, my non-US friends.  I know what you call knickers.  :D

Have a great day!


  1. The knickers cracked me up. Thanks for sharing, Jaycee.

  2. KISS was my first great musical love affair. It was 1979. Dynasty was released and we were all singing I Was Made For Loving You. They toured Australia that year but I was not allowed to go. Thankfully I did catch them live many years later in Sydney. What a great, great band. I still listen to them.

    On The Karate Kid. I really enjoyed the remake with Jackie Chan. Wisely they avoided any references to waxing.

  3. I remember knickers! I wanted a pair so bad. I got one, but they were just a bit too small. I was heartbroken.

  4. Hello, Jaycee! I love the original Karate Kid! One of the best movies from the '80s. :)

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  5. I love your theme - it brings back so many memories as I visit. I had knickers and thought they were the coolest things evah. :)

  6. Knickers are something new to me, but that line from Karate Kid is definitely well known. I know it and I haven't even seen the whole movie.

    Have fun with a-z. :)
