Ακούω / Άκουα -by morfeas9

Ermmm… it’s been 9 years. And ermm… this is new.

Aqua – Back to the 80’s

Back in the Ronald Reagan days
When we put satellites in space
When boys wore skinny leather ties
Like Don Johnson from Miami Vice.

When Eminem was just a snack
And Michael Jackson’s skin was black
Back when the coolest thing in store
Was a Commodore 64.

Back to the 80’s
Back to Soap
Back to Rocky and Cherry Coke
Those were the days
And we go.

Back to the 80’s
Say ‘Hey there, Mister T.’
Put Twisted Sisters on MTV
Those were the days
I’ll come back.

To Iron Maiden and 7Up
Bananarama and Breakfast Club
Come back
Come back
I’ll come back.

When Huey Lewis was the news
And we went flying with Tom Cruise
When shoulder pads and looking tough,
Was the dirty David Hasselhoff.

Too many men with heavy makeup on
Too many poodles with guitars
Thanks for all the joy you’ve given us
You will always be our superstars.

Hooray for Cosby and Rubik’s cube
Hooray for Dynasty and moon boots
Hooray for Devo and barber curls
Hooray for Poltergeist and Barbie girls.

    My very first post!

    I grew up in the 80’s and I freakin’ hated them ! Oh, and these guys mention quite a few reasons for that hatred in their lyrics (the whole “stylistic approach” and Ronald Reagan being two of them).

    And then -to add insult to injury -came Bill Drummond…

  2. Window Sill

    I’m sooooo cute and so are they!

  3. Anonymous… come on… your first comment remaining anonymous??

    Window sill… good for u boy!

    I’m not sure bout the 80’s but I would luv for 90’s, mid-90’s music to come bak. And then we could all start buying “Now”s again…

  4. R u kidding me?

    Seriously… fluck the 80’s man… they were nothing but a bad, endless ad for a crappy product.

  5. The Passenger

    I pray that morfeas’s hopes never materialise.

  6. What difference would it make for you Passenger if mainstream music trends change?

    U’ll still be in ur own world by that time….
