Bastards. I resemble that!

I'm listing to a new funny song I heard on the radio this week (and subsequently downloaded) called "1985" by Bowling for Soup. I'm too young for nostalgia! I downloaded it this afternoon and Shannon tells me that it's "her school gang's theme song." We were both singing it. It's funny to listen to my daughter singing about stuff that happened eight years before she was born. I had to help her with some of the references that she didn't get. She took me to Yahoo Launch and showed me the video for this tune. It's funny.

Woohoohoo

Debbie just hit the wall,
She never had it all,
One Prozac a day,
Husband's a CPA,
Her dreams went out the door,
When she turned twenty four,
Only been with one man,
What happened to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress,
She was gonna be a star,
She was gonna shake her ass,
On the hood of White Snake's car,
Her yellow SUV,
Is now the enemy,
Looks at her average life,
Where nothing, has been, all right,
Since...

Bruce Springstein, Madonna,
Way before Nirvana,
There was U2 and Blondie,
And music still on MTV,
Her two kids in high school,
They tell her that she's uncool,
'Cause she still preoccupied,
With Nineteen, Nineteen, Nineteen Eighty-five.

Woohoohoo

She's seen all the classics,
She knows every line,
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink,
Even Saint Elmo's Fire,
She rocked out to Wham,
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan,
Thought she'd get a hand,
On a member of Duran Duran.

Where's the mini-skirt,
Made of snake skin,
And who's the other guy,
That's singing in Van Halen,
When did reality become T.V.
What ever happened to sitcoms, game shows,
(On the radio) was...

Springsteen, Madonna,
Way before Nirvana,
There was U2 and Blondie,
And music still on MTV,
Her two kids in high school,
They tell her that she's uncool,
'Cause she still preoccupied,
With Nineteen, Nineteen, Nineteen Eighty-five

Woohoohoo

She hates time, make it stop
When did Motley Crew become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this,
Stop! Stop! Stop!
...
And bring back...

Springstein, Madonna,
Way before Nirvana,
There was U2 and Blondie,
And music still on MTV,
Her two kids in high school,
They tell her that she's uncool,
'Cause she still preoccupied,
With Nineteen Eighty-five,
Since...
