We were listening to some 80's music the other day (surprise,surprise!) and I mentioned good old George. The 24-year-old I was with, asked out of curiosity "who is George?"
"Who is George?" I returned incredulously and I instantly knew that "George" must have been before her time! I simultaneously realized that now I was starting to reference things that occured before other people were old enough to understand!? I have now reached a new tier on the age chart--check the box between 30-years-old and 40-years-old and you'll find me! It is a sad day to realize that there are a lot of people who have not shared my experiences! But I tried to save my dignity by retorting that I'm not familiar with some older bands either like,say, the "Who"--I was just recently introduced to!
I asked her again--"Haven't you heard of "Wham"?"....nothing....crickets and blank stares.....
I have resigned myself to looking for "vintage VH1" and "80's tributes on MTV. I'm officially "vintage" now which sounds better than archaic I suppose!
Alas, I will walk off into the distance shaking my cane and muttering "kids these days with their rock and roll music!" (I really did say something similar to that effect by citing that Depeche Mode and say, Def Lepard are way more vocally talented than most of "today's" synthesized artists)! You can keep the new genre of "pop rock", I don't want to download that shiz even for free!
"I want your sex
I want your love
I want your.. Sex
It's chemical (let's do it)
Habitual (can we do it?)
But most of all...
Sex is something we should do
Sex is something for me and you
Sex is natural - sex is good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should
Sex is natural - sex is fun
Sex is best when it's... One on one
One on one"
