1985 Lyrics

(Woo-hoo-hoo)
(Woo-hoo-hoo)

Debbie just hit the wall, she never had it all
One Prozac a day, husband's a CPA
Her dreams went out the door when she turned twenty-four
Only been with one man, what happened to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress, she was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass on the hood of Whitesnake's car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy
Looks at her average life and nothin' has been alright

Since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19
1985

(Woo-hoo-hoo)
(1985)
(Woo-hoo-hoo)

She's seen all the classics, she knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, even St. Elmo's Fire
She rocked out to Wham, not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she'd get a hand on a member of Duran Duran

Where's the mini-skirt made of snakeskin?
And who's the other guy that's singin' in Van Halen?
When did reality become TV?
What ever happened to sitcoms, game shows?
(On the radio was)

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19
1985

(Woo-hoo-hoo)

She hates time, make it stop
When did Motley Crue become classic rock? (Classic rock)
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this stop, stop, stop

And bring back Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
1985 (woo-hoo-hoo)

Since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19
1985

1985 Meanings

You have-HAVE to love it! It's about a mom, a wife, a woman, who saw her life passing her by, making all the stereotyped choices -getting married and have kids young- and all is left is her daydreaming about those "Good old times". The song is catchy and is full of references to bands, making a comparisson between what was hot in her days and what is now.
