40th anniversary of "ET - The Extra-Terrestrial"

"E.T.- The Extra-Terrestrial" was released in US cinemas on June 11, 1982 and in West Germany on December 9, 1982. Citizens of the GDR had to wait until 1988 to see Steven Spielberg's science fiction classic. The film became the world's highest-grossing film of the decade. A good reason for a retro playlist with a lot of 80s charm. Photo by Jeremy Thomas on Unsplash
