The Lyrics

Ah, how it was when I was young, when hip-hop was fun, pop tunes were sung, and video game's graphics took a back seat to game play and plot lines. I'm at When I was young, I remember my grandparents thinking my music and stuff was ridiculous, now I understand what they were talking about--I'm living it now.
Life keeps on coming
Speeding right through
These days all run together
What happened to my youth

I'm missing all the early 90's tunes
The bands today all sound like robot loons
The Eighties will be called the oldies soon
Well I recall when all that stuff was new

Now Blockbuster is packing
They simply can't compete
and WalMart is now stationed
On ev'ry single street

Now I remember back in Ninety-Two
The emo kids were the odd ones in school
but now it seems it's pain that's become cool
and all I was into's become taboo

My nieces make me feel rather old
When I talk about bands that they don't know
They think that Fall Out Boy has hard core tunes
but they're soft next to what I listened too

Kids laugh at my old shoes
and my old nineties lines
What's happened to the world
What about Sublime
TV's gone to hell
Far as I can tell
Makes me want to yell

Life's always changing
Sky is still blue
But today's kids never see it
It's not on YouTube

I can't believe what my mom said was true
That one day I'd long to be in high school
Back then I used to fake I had the flu
But that's before being a geek was cool

Now ev'ry kid has sleek Ipod cell phones
When I was young a Walkman's what we owned
and GameBoy screens only displayed two hues
But now the graphics are like the PS2

Please slow down for a moment (Where's my youth)
Slow down for a moment (Where's my youth)
Slow down for a moment -- Where's my youth
Slow down for a moment, where's my youth

Top marks for the sentiment although while you're reminiscing about the 90's, for me it's the 70's. Never heard of the band or the song, it was your title that interested me. I thought MTV killed off music in the early 80's by making everyone sound like everyone else.

PS I learned something new while reading your header - I didn't realize hip-hop had ever been fun.

Well done trip down the nostalgic path, Dave. I think I froze in time in the nineties. I like the OS choice - have always liked Lifehouse.

I've enjoyed my time in the 90's, especially in high school where I can hear music of Ace of Base, Backstreet Boys, REM, and Haddaway running in my head while I walk down the hallways in high school. Most of all, I miss the 80's the most because they play lots of cool music! A long time ago, I dreamt that I was still a tyke in 1984 and was in preschool. I even miss going back to school. I wished they invented a time machine! LOL! I'm also going through the same thing relating to your top comments. Every now and then, I listen to Talking Heads, Elton John, Eiffel 65, and Matchbox 20. Great parody down memory lane. 555. BTW, you're not that old from what I saw in your pic in your website.

Wonderfully wistful, Dave...but geez, this makes me feel OLD! (The late 70's/80s were my nostalgia period). 555

Christie Marie: I'm 27, I guess old is relative. . .overall--most consider me young, but sometimes I hear today's stuff and I feel old, like--when did this happen, I must have missed some. Did auto-tune become some kind of law or something to where any music released today has to contain XX% of autotune. . .LOL

And my time was the 80s...which seems to be coming back in fashion again. A fistful of wistfulness, nice stuff.

(Artistry) Nice reflection on the ever-changing times. Nailed the pacing too, which is nice. 555

(Artistry) It really pains me to watch everyone grow old around me. But if you hang in there long enough, what goes around comes around, everything old is new again, and all that blather.
