andee's world

Hello and welcome to my blog. This space will be devoted to opinions, observations, lists, articles and whatever else I feel like posting. Subjects will include music, human nature, politics, life in NYC, etc. If I paste someone else's writing up here, it is because the author said something way better than I ever could. By the way, I don't claim to be a particularly smart guy; I'm just a musician with some opinions. If you disagree with me, that's cool -- but then, you're probably wrong.

Oh, That DJs 'Round the World Would Give These Songs a Long, Long Rest:

Dancing With Myself
Turning Japanese
Just Like Heaven
Blister In the Sun
Don't You Forget About Me
Bizarre Love Triangle
Love Will Tear Us Apart
Inbetween Days
Rebel Yell
Come On Eileen
Our Lips Are Sealed
Take On Me

and so on....

One wonders, now that the 80s revival has endured for years longer than the 80s themselves,

Will people ever, ever, EVER grow bored of these obvious, tired and perennially overplayed songs? Or will we march on into the coming decades forever locked in this state of arrested development?

And will the 90s ever get a turn in the nostalgia sweepstakes? Who else is excited for a Gin Blossoms/Bush/Seven Mary Three/Joan Osborne/Meredith Brooks/Counting Crows/Wallflowers/Hootie/Semisonic/Marcy Playground/4 Non Blondes/Crash Test Dummies comeback and possible package tour? Anyone?
