Now in Sound-o-vision!

I have reached yet another milestone in "olditude".

When they use songs in commericals that you have a personal attachment to?
And you wander around for days thinking "Who tell hell really sang that song? I can remember all of the lyrics" and then one day, in the shower you realize

Tears for Fears. You corporate fuckers have taken "Mad World" from Tears for Fears and made it into a video game commerical.

I mean, I really like this version too...but hey, don't pillage my youth.

What's next? Fergie ripping off JJ Fads Supersonic, nearly word for word?

Oh, apparently yes.

I know. What really bothers me even more is when they cover a really great song for a commercial or otherwise and then there's this whole generation of whippersnappers who suddenly think Justin Timberlake is the best songwriter in the world. Hell no.

Nothing is sacred. It's like that stupid Gap commercial with poor Audrey Hepburn. Oh, the humanity.

I have the 45rpm record of Supersonic, but I don't think I ever saw the video. That rocked.

The worst for me was Nick Drake's "Pink Moon" in that car commercial...was it BMW? I've blocked it out. But Tears for Fears is pretty bad, too.

"i'm not easy, i'm not sleazy?" are you kidding me? ferg, sweetheart--look at my sagging buh-zoombas and the bags under my eyes and tell me you still think i was born yesterday. please. maybe the line should have been "i look greasy and i'm cheesy."

but enough about fergmeister. the fact high school kids now think about my formative years the way i once idealized the 60s is not comforting to me, it's annoying as hell. now i understand why my dad was so pissed when i got into jefferson airplane and janis.
