"Acceptable in the 80s" by Calvin Harris is featured on Just Dance, Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, Just Dance Unlimited, and Just Dance Now. It is also featured on Just Dance 3 as a downloadable track on the Xbox 360.
Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman with light green curly hair with a small light blue bow. She is wearing large turquoise glasses, large blue earrings, a pair of turquoise fingerless gloves, a lime green loose off shoulder top, a white belt, dark green calf-length leggings, leg warmers, and peep toe heels.
The background appears to be a purple wall with a lot of pink lines, and wires intersecting.
Just Dance 3/Greatest Hits (Xbox)
In the Xbox 360 version, the background changes a lot, from the typical purple wall and pink lines to a sky blue wall and diagonal aqua lines falling and more.
In the remake, the background is more similar to the Wii versions of Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of. The background is more zoomed out and forms with a weird, space-like noise; a similar noise is played at the end, when all the lines disappear quickly.
From Just Dance 3 onward, there are 4 Gold Moves in the routine, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Point forward with your right arm, one arm at a time and with your left hand on your head.
Acceptable in the 80s is featured in the following Mashups:
- Hands N' Hips
- Silly Hips
- S Snap
- Acceptable in the 80s is the first song by Calvin Harris in the series; it is later followed by I Need Your Love, Summer, Blame, and How Deep Is Your Love.
- This makes Acceptable in the 80s the only of Calvin's songs to not be put in consecutive games.
- The dancer's glove color is light blue, but in Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, the arrows/props in the pictograms are dark green.
- On the PAL covers of Greatest Hits and Best Of, the dancer's blouse is shown to have glitter, although there is no glitter on the dancer's blouse in the actual routine.
- This is one of only two songs in Just Dance to have both a difficulty and effort rating of 3. The other song is Jerk It Out.
- The routine briefly appears in Video Killed the Radio Star.
- In the routine, the coach's bow constantly glitches to white throughout the entire song.
- A pictogram is inappropriately named "acceptable_boobs".
- In Just Dance Unlimited, through Just Dance 2017, Acceptable in the 80s appears in the Just Dance 2 search section, rather than appearing in the Just Dance search section.
