Waiting on the inactives …
It’s 11:20 a.m. EST, and I’m still waiting to hear a song made after 1987. Last night, the music at a sports bar in nearby Greektown was nothing but early-to-mid-’80s music. It sounded like 20 percent of the songs on my iPod. This morning on the public-address system here at Ford Field, they followed Rick Springfield’s Jessie’s Girl with Roll With It by Steve Winwood.
It’s 11:28, and that twosome of songs led into American Woman by Jimi Hendrix and Glory Days from Bruce Springsteen. Good tunes both, but I’m sure there’s a fair amount of people in the building who were born after 1980, so throw them a bone, eh?
Now it’s 11:32 a.m., and we hear Out of My Head by Fastball. Finally, we move ahead a decade. Two minutes later, we’re back in the 1970s with the Doobie Brothers; four minutes later, we’re on Eddie Money. If you’re going to go retro, why not go for the classic Motown sound, or at least some Ted Nugent?
Still waiting for the inactives.
