[The following exchange is from Youtube. I am the OP and you can see what people responded. Some of these young people are wiser than many who didn't know anybody than to display their ignorance on this thread.]

Oh how spoiled I was in the 80s. I didn't like this song when it came out. Now after listening to all the worthless shit garbage fucking up the airwaves today, this sounds fantastic. I'd give anything to back to this level cuz it is just shit today.

You are such a close minded individual.

But I'm a close-minded individual with taste.

Someone said I was closed minded when I said Im 24 years old and love music from the 80s instead of today's music..

I was a hardcore punker in the 80s so I considered this song to be all wimped out although it was admittedly catchy. But if I heard a band do this today I'd think, "Say, they're pretty good! Better than the shit other bands are putting out." I didn't know how good I had it. I thought there would always be variety and integrity in music so I could be choosy. I don't know what the hell happened. It's just sickening though.

This may be my time and generation (22yo) but I completely agree. My family raised me on classics from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I picked a few things up on my own in the 90s, but I have always thought the 80s styles were my cup of tea. (Of course, I'm talking about music... I don't think I'll be loading my hair with hair-spray.) It really upsets me where the artistic genres are going: movies, music, books, etc. It all seems to be dying.

The 90s was the last great decade for music and television. Both turned to shit about the same time. Both sacrificed quality to maximize profits. It upsets me that people have settled for this and don't see anything wrong with it. Maybe it's my punk training talking but our culture has been hijacked by corporate mediocrity.

Except scrubs and two and a half men ever other comedy show was shit , except friends that ended in 2004 but started 1994
