Reelin’ in the Years – 2016


It’s 2016 and I’m – gasp – 54 years old. Driving in the car I hear this song. There are several really nice tunes this year. But Starboy takes the cake for me.

Back in the 80s and early 90s I had written a couple of songs that played with these themes. But none of my tunes brought it all together like this. I was amazed at this guy’s talent. I didn’t know who he was or that he was from Toronto. I just liked it a lot.

The song can be taken on different levels. The radio version censored the MF-word and replaced it with some scratches. I respect artistic representation so am not horrified when the ugly MF-word is used in this context. But I also liked the scratched version played on the radio.
