Sooooo, I’d been in musical stasis ever since I left home for college in 1998. This month I started my first real full-time office job, and I’ve been spending a lot of time catching up with things while I work, mostly on last.fm . It kept playing songs by Goldfrapp, and I quite liked them. I’ve bought some on iTunes.
Today I looked her up on YouTube. Um… oh my gosh. She’s what MTV wanted to be in 1983. When on EARTH did mirror-reflective horses and puffy sleeves come back into fashion? Is it my generation’s fault? But why on earth would we want to relive a time period we remember? Especially such a stupid-looking one?
Someone please help me. I’m confused.
To make things worse, my co-workers then directed me to “My Humps,” first the Black-Eyed Peas version (gasp!), then the Alanis Morrisette version (yeah, well, all her post-Jagged Little Pill songs sound exactly the same).
