I just read the sad news that Farrah Fawcett passed away this morning. She may have accomplished many things in her short lifetime but the one thing she'll always be remembered for is her guaranteed presence on the bedroom wall of every hetero-boy in the late '70s.
In honor of Farrah, the newly anointed angel, let's remember our teenage poster portraits. Whose eyes did you gaze into, while picking out the names of your future children (and horses)? Or maybe it was [insert hottie here]'s mile-long legs that gave you your first lesson in...um...self-design, as it were.
My dreamboat of choice was Corey Haim. I loved, loved him - with his big eyes, bigger hair, and squeaky not-quite-a-man voice. Fellow Haim'er, Candid Karina, provided the only image I could find online of the poster that also shared my wall space. Just look past the flash spot and awkward family photo to the gelled and leathered Corey...sigh. The reason for my obsession should be obvious.
So tell us all who made you swoon and provide pics and/or links, if you can!
