It may have been dominated with perms, yuppies and shoulder pads but the 1980s has been voted coolest decade of the past 50 years, according to a UK survey.

Some 41% of people questioned in an online survey said the 80s was their favourite decade, followed by the 60s and the 90s.

The Nineties polled as the least cool decade since 1960, with only 10% of people saying it was their favourite.

The Live Aid pop concert was the thing people liked best about the 80s, ahead of the Rubik’s Cube and the Pac Man computer game.

The yuppie’s favourite accessory, the Filofax, came fourth in the poll followed by the films Dirty Dancing and The Goonies in joint fifth place.
