Are we talking about songs that date themselves instantly and embarrassingly, or merely about songs whose lyrics happen to reference things or places that don't exist or aren't ubiquitous anymore?

My intention was to focus on songs that reference something that was a blip on the radar of pop culture.

Rock Me Amadeus.

Like, what the fuck is a Mozart? Must have been some mid-80s flash in the pan who was only famous in Austria or something.

And people still write letters. I get them every day at work. Well, maybe not every day, but a lot.

I didn't quite understand the implication of that post. Are you, also, a devout follower of the ways of "Heat of the Moment"?

Yeah. People aren't getting that.

Singing about the USSR or vinyl records aren't the same as singing about MCI or Jenna Jameson.

But let's play along with the misunderstanding.

"Jara sang, his song a weapon"

Gambled. Lost. Horrid.

ahh, i see. i wouldn't have considered mci a blip since they were around for decades, but that's probably more because we had that annoying "friends and family" thing they offered for a while.

If someone finds me a song that references Netscape navigator, I will be eternally amused.

There need to be more songs about the Chevy Chase Show.

I suppose if I'm not part of the solution I'm part of the problem.
