    Default 1985

    This very well may have been posted before, but has anyone heard the song "1985" by some group named "Bowling for Soup"?

    In the second verse the lyric goes something like...
    "Where's the mini skirt made of snake skin and who's the other guy singin' in Van Halen?"

    The song is kind of a funny look back at 1985 in a "We didn't start the Fire" kind of way.

    Yeah, I heard the song, seen the video, and seen those guys, but they didn't play that song then. The video is really funny.

    I think it's a fun song. Every time it comes on the radio, my wife chuckles at the "When did Motley Crue become classic rock?" line.

    We must have ESP. I was listening to this song last night and was thinking about posting a thread about it. Haha!

    I think it is funny when the wife rolls around on a car like David Coverdales ex-wife Tawny did, in the Here I Go Again -Whitesnake video.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    Never heard the song, but I like the lyrics:

    Woohoohoo
    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
    And nothing has been alright

    Since Bruce 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's still preoccupied
    With 19, 19, 1985

    Woohoohoo
    (1985)
    Woohoohoo

    She's seen all the classics, she knows every line
    'Breakfast Club', 'Pretty in Pink'
    Even 'St. 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 TV
    Whatever 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's still preoccupied
    With 19, 19, 1985

    Woohoohoo

    She hates time, make it stop
    When did Motley Crue become classic rock
    And when did Ozzy become an actor
    Please make this stop, stop
    Stop, and bring back

    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's still preoccupied
    With 1985

    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 shes uncool
    Cause she's still preoccupied
