1985

What is 1985?


1.

The year before 1986 and after 1984.

(the latter of which can also be used to refer to a horrid book by George Orwell)

2.

A year in which, despite the seemingly drug-like addiction that they all have to the song of the same title, most Bowling For Soup fans were not alive.

"I'd still be preoccupied with 1985...if my parents had copulated 9 years earlier."

A great song. Period. The band itself, Bowling For Soup, isn't that good, but this song kicks ass. Unfortunately, 98% of high school kids who like this song don't even understand it. Just look at the deffinition with the lyrics! Guerenteed they don't even know who Whitesnake is, what they mean by Gameshows on the radio, and have never seen 'Breakfast Club'. THEY EVEN GOT THE LYRICS WRONG! 'She walked out to WAM"!?!? No, you dumbass, it's 'She ROCKED out to WHAM', an 80's pop group. And the creme de la crap, one thing that pisses me off more than anything else is this, 'When did Montley Crew become classic rock?' MONTLEY CREW!!!???!!!??? The moral of the story is, if you don't know shit about the decade, then don't pretend you understand the song.

Urban dictionary now requires you to use the word in the example, so here it is: 1985

A strange song that gets stuck in your head easily by Bowling for Soup.

"Debbie just hit the wall

She never had it all

One Prozac a day

Husbands a CPA

Her dreams went out the door

When she turned 24

Only been with one man

What happened to her plan

She was gonna be an actress

She was gonna be a star

She was gonna shake her a**

On the hood of Whitesnake's car

Her yellow SUV

Is now the enemy

Looks at her average life

And nothing has been all right

Since...

Springstein, Madonna

Way before Nirvana

There was U2 and blondie

Music still on MTV

Her two kids in highschool

They tell her that she's uncool

Cuz shes still preoccupied with 19...19...1985!

She's seen all the classics

She knows every line

Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink

Even St. Elmo's Fire

She walked out to WAM

Not a big Limp Bizkit fan

Thought she'd get a hand

On a member of Duran Duran

Wears the mini-skirt

Made of snakeskin

And who's the other guy

that's singing in Van Halen

when did reality

Become TV

Whatever happened to

Sitcoms and gameshows

On the radio

Springstein, Madonna

Way before Nirvana

There was U2 and blondie

Music still on MTV

Her two kids in highschool

They tell her that she's uncool

Cuz shes still preoccupied with 19...19...1985!

She hates time

Make it stop

When did Montly Crew

Become classic rock

And when did Ozzy

Become an actor

Please make this STOP...Stop...Stop...

And bring back...

Springstein, Madonna

Way before Nirvana

There was U2 and blondie

Music still on MTV

Her two kids in highschool

They tell her that she's uncool

Cuz shes still preoccupied with 19...19...1985! "

A great song that was completely killed by the radio. Here's the history:

The song was originally written and recorded by SR-71 on their album HERE WE GO. It was about a woman who wanted to be a star in the 80s but had an unplanned pregnancy.

A friend of SR-71's Mitch Allan, Jaret Reddick was in the UK that year with his band, Bowling For Soup. BFS had just been nominated for a grammy in 2002 and were about to put the finishing touches on A HANGOVER YOU DON'T DESERVE. Jaret decided to buy his friend's album and the song that caught his ears was...1985. Nobody really knows who made the call. According to SR-71's website, Jaret called and asked if he could rewrite the song and put it on their new album. But according to Bowling for Soup's website, Mitch called Jaret and asked about the cover. All we know is BFS rewrote and covered 1985 and the awesome cover was over played on every radio station thus ruining it.

In 2005, something horrible happened. KidzBop ruined the already ruined song by putting it on KidzBop 7. Also, a copy of KidzBop, 4 Kidz by Kidz put it on 4 Kidz by Kidz 2. Radio Disney found the song and edited it. someone put it on a karaoke thingy. Even though the song kept getting put on all the useless cover albums, people started to pay less attention to the song and Bowling For Soup. They were luckily saved when they released "Almost" as a single, but it may not have happened. It just goes to show you the evils of the radio.

1985 is a great song but it was overplayed on the radio.

Moniker attached to a self-mixed alcoholic drink, eg bourbon and coke, wherein the quantity of liquor is significantly greater than that of the mixer. 1985 is a bastardised fraction - instead of asking for a 20/80, (representing the quantities of mixer and spirit respectively), the drinker humorously requests a 19/85, alluding to the compromised intellect symptomatic of the intoxication such a potent drink would inevitably cause.

Dipsomaniac: I think I'll have another bundy and coke.

Server of drinks: How strong?

Dipsomaniac: Aw, go all out, give us a 1985

See mixed drink, mixer, jimmy, jack, bundy, cruiser, cocktail

A really bad song by Bowling for Soup that tells you when music was once good. Most of you probably wouldn't know because chances are you're a twelve year old prep who cheers on songs about people and places you wouldn't have a damned clue about.

YA LOL! YOU TOO, BLONDY!!!!!!!
