30-Day Song Challenge: Day 21

Day 21: A Song That You Listen To When You’re Happy – Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles and Internet Killed the Video Star by The Limousines

I’m an 80s girl at heart so being able to go through the alternative music rebirth is an absolute blast!  Some may disagree with me, that music in recent years was really no better than what we were given in the late 90s, but there is no doubt in my mind that the 80s new wave is extremely influential to today’s musical artists. 

We all know the historical significance that has followed the Buggles for nearly thirty years. Now the Limousines have pointed out the obvious with their song.  It was only a matter of time before videos got knocked off by the reigning king of music and media. 

Seriously, what kind of techno-wonders will they think of next?

We can’t rewind. We’ve gone too far.

About Dena

I'm a suburban Clevelander by way of Oklahoma City, by way of North Florida, by way of Southern Maryland, by way of Upper Michigan, by way of Northern Italy, by way of Lower Michigan, by way of Texas. Because of living in so many places, I have something in common with almost everyone I meet. I love reading, writing, and American history (especially reading or writing about American history). I'm interested in culture of place, historical trauma, and writing about the kinds of histories most people don't know about.
