Canción de la semana: 1985 - Bowling for Soup


1985 es una canción de la banda Bowling for Soup (una de mis bandas favoritas, por cierto).
Es un cover que hicieron de la banda SR-17.


La canción trata de una chica que se graduó, se casó joven y no cumplió sus sueños. Ahora vive una vida aburrida, en los suburbios y quiere que regresen en el tiempo, al año 1985 y tomar otro camino.
Tanto la letra, el sonido y el video son muy divertidos.

Aquí les dejo la letra:


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 Whitesnake’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 

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. 
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 

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! 

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 

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
