LONDON, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Despite obvious cultural low points, such as leg warmers, yuppies and shoulder pads, a British poll shows the 1980s is the most missed period of modern times.

Other results of the poll show the 60s had the best music and fashion, while the greatest films came from the 90s, according to the poll by Warner Breaks Just For Adults published in The Mirror Monday.

Boy George had the top 80s song with Culture Club's "Karma Chameleon," followed by Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax," "With or Without You" by U2 and Duran Duran's "Rio."

"ET" was voted best film, ahead of "Back to the Future," "Top Gun," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Batman."

The most unforgettable moment of the decade was the Band Aid concert, followed by the collapse of the Berlin Wall and John Lennon's assassination.
