I was listening to a couple of songs recently, “Modern Woman” by Billy Joel and “Heat of the Moment” by Asia, and noticed that both songs mention the year that is contemporary with their release. In “Modern Woman” it’s “And after 1986, what else could be new?” and In “Heat of the Moment” it’s “And now you find yourself in '82.”
The placement of the year such as this can make a song sound hip and current, yet after the passage of time makes it horribly dated. Are there other examples of songs such as these which mention the current year, then become outdated?
Note, I’m not asking for songs such as “December 1963” which were written well after the date mentioned and are intended to evoke more of a nostalgic mood.
