Sometimes doing the math on how old I was when a song was released it just depressing. Take, I Guess That’s Why They Call it The Blues, for example. This song by Elton John was released in 1983. That’s 30 years ago for the mathematically-challenged. Thirty freaking years!
I was 13 at the time and loaded with teenage angst. I was in love with being in love and this song played to every emotion I had about what “real” love was supposed to be like. By the time this song was on a regular rotation on the radio, MuchMusic had just started and I was glued to my television hoping this video or Electric Avenue would play.

HA HA HA! I remember the teenage years and being glued to Much Music. Always wanted to ask my parents “Hey, can I call in to vote for NKOTB on Combat des Clips? It will only cost you $2.99!”
The memories. EGH. Teenage years were so awkward. I’m glad it’s all behind me. Way, way behind.
I had to laugh at the above comment because that would totally have been me. My parents were too cheap to buy cable so I had to watch it at their house.
