the best songs ever: the lost years
#41
Here is something else that I liked from the eighties.  It is pretty typical of what we liked at the time.



Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard. -- H.L. Mencken

If one rejects laissez faire on account of man's fallibility and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject every kind of government action.   -- Ludwig von Mises

The mother and daughter duo (my mother and myself) absolutely love this song. She converted me to many of her songs. Tongue

Of course I first heard this with Mrs Doubtfire.

I remember it well.  Still hear it on the oldies stations to this day.

Here is another one of those bands with dudes sporting the androgynous look.  I don't think any of us really liked that look very much since almost nobody copied it but it was a good song.

I have posted this one before but not where we encountered because you see it was almost never played on the radio.  I am curious to see what you think of it.  This movie was very popular among Xers but I don't think a Millie will relate to it very well.

If there was ever an archetype of the happy side of the eighties then this was it.

Haha well my mother and i tend to love the happy stuff! Which is what caught my ear during the 90s really. I certainly do not stick to it. You will see later as i have some songs in mind for the 90s which are certainly not happy.

Here is another one that I really liked.  He did not last long.

No i don't relate to it and the sound is unusual to me. I do not understand the meaning of it. I can only imagine it is about senseless killing and madness around these war vets. Shrug. Not my thing but i totally respect that many xers like it.

Can you imagine my delight when my mother told me the judge of American Idol was a singer/dancer!

You don't understand and I am not surprised.  Consider yourself fortunate.

The GIs stared into the abyss during the Second World War and for many of those who survived there was something to look forward to as history records.  For Generation X that was never true even though many of us stared into the abyss at all to young of an age and knew that it was only a dress rehearsal for what was to come.  No matter what we did there would be no victory and survival was only temporary at best.  No matter what we did in the end there would be no victory.  In fact the moment you though that you had escape you would discover how screwed you really were.
