Bowling for Soup's "1985" first attracted me since it's about the year I graduated (plus it's a damn catchy song, with a great video). I bought their earlier album and kind of forgot about it, though it does have some other good songs, especially "Ohio (Come Back to Texas)".
Now today, just as I was parking in front of the house, satellite radio played a new Bowling for Soup song, "High School Never Ends." ("Reese Witherspoon, she's the prom queen / Bill Gates, he's on the chess team.")
It was so catchy I made Rob come sit in the parked car with me while I utilized the kind-of-like-TiVo function on my XM radio to replay it.
("Check out the popular kids / You’ll never guess what Jessica did / How did Mary Kate lose all that weight? / And Katie had a baby so I guess Tom’s straight.")
And who can't identify with this?:
"The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who‘s the best dressed and who‘s having sex,
Who‘s got the money, who gets the honeys,
Who‘s kinda cute and who‘s just a mess
And I still don’t have the right look
And I still have the same three friends
And I’m pretty much the same as I was back then
High school never ends..."
