Nothing says, “damn, you’re old!” like a list of 30-year-old songs.
That, and the way you catch yourself cursing the “so-called music kids these days are listening to.”
But when you scroll down this list of songs that are somehow 30 years old (WTF, right?!), you suddenly feel the need to dig out your old cassettes/records. Because these past hits are still – and always will be – pretty great.
See, this is where you win. While a dead mouse (mou5e?) and robots take over a good portion of the music industry (what IS Skrillex, anyway? A llama-cyborg?) and teen singers blindly appropriate 80s fashion, you – yes YOU – know all the good songs.
It’s your secret weapon in the game of cool.
You may have a mortgage, some crow’s feet, and/or a crippling student loan, but when it comes to your accumulation of cultural capital, you are a wealthy motherlover. You hold the knowledge, and knowledge is power.
Break these jams out at a party and watch the bodies start moving.
