Back when

Picked up a new song over the weekend, Aqua's "Back to the 80's". It reminded me of Sandwich's "Betamax".

When M&M was just a snack 
And Michael Jackson's skin was black...

Back to Rocky and Cherry Coke, yeah...

Too many men with heavy makeup on / Too many poodles with guitars 
Thanks for all the joy you've given us / You will always be our superstars...

Hooray for Cosby and Rubik's cube 
Hooray for Dynasty and moon boots
Hooray for Devo and barber curls
Hooray for Poltergeist and Barbie girls

Let's go back to the 80s

Wala pa nung myx wala pa nung MTV
Wala pa nung internet
Wala pa nung ipod at mp3
Wala pa nung cable
Wala pa nung cellphone
Wala pa ring cd or dvd
Meron lang betamax

Nagreklamo si Chikoy Pura
Sa balita ng Asin
Ang anak ni ka Freddie
Kinontra ni Edu Abraham
Dumibidoo ang Apo Hiking
Mga kababayan ni Francis M
Beh buti nga sa Hotdog
Nosibalasi Sampaguita

Sa jingle magazine
Natutong mag gitara
Sinifra ang mga kanta
Sa cassettte at plaka

Does the immediacy of the net generation have us longing for the good old analog days?

Not necessarily, as Sandwich sums up, "ipagpatuloy ang daloy ng alon" ( my terrible translation is... "it's the continuous flow of the waves").
