Reelin’ in the Years – 1983


1983 Ford – The bright, boxy look is in – Wikipedia

It’s 1983 and I’m 21 years old. A legal adult in most countries. I believe the age of majority was 19 yrs in Ontario back then. But it used to be 18 and 21 yrs. I’m not into alcohol so it never was a huge issue for me.

What is an adult, anyhow? Some chronological adults behave like kids. And some kids act like adults.

I’ve moved to a new town, a new university and am living in a house with a bunch of students whom I don’t know. Luckily they’re a pretty decent bunch. I’m sitting in the living room and this song comes on. Wow. Now that is different. So European, so cool, so mod. And it was.

Personally, I think this is one of the best pop songs of all time. I just watched the video again and for the most part, it holds up!

Some of them want to use you…
Some of them want to be abused

Human beings in a nutshell. Well, the sad side, anyhow.

Thank God there’s more than that.
