Was 2005 really FIFTEEN YEARS AGO?!
If you’re a millennial, I know you spent your youth, tween, and teen years rocking out to Bowling For Soup’s 2004 hit song and absolute bop, «1985».
Welp, TikTok user @fntmsage — who’s known for posting original songs and covers — REALLY humbled me with his cover of the beloved song. He rewrote the lyrics to reflect the year 2005 (a whole year AFTER the original was released), and lemme just tell you, it’s perfection.
He mentions 2000s cinematic staples like Juno, Superbad, Mean Girls, and so on.
He captures the quintessential 2005 music-listening experience, aka pre-Spotify.
He even calls out our obsession with IG and then name drops the OG and GOAT — MYSPACE!!!
My emo heart just can’t take it! And I’m not the only one. People on TikTok are blindly listening to the lyrics for the first time, and their reactions pretty much say it all:
As someone who related to literally EVERY aspect of this song, I feel seen, heard, and quite frankly, OLD. I guess the only question left to ask is, when are we getting a full-length track release???
Мысль на память: Недостаточно просто поступать правильно, главное — это позволить людям знать, что вы поступаете правильно.
