Throwback Thursday – Sardines

It’s throwback Thursday, as they say. I usually let Thursdays pass without any notice of such things. But, I heard this song on the radio the other day, and it took me back to my college days in DC. The city is the birthplace of Go-Go, so you hear a lot of the music (for more on Go-Go, check out my friend Natalie Hopkinson’s book, Go-Go Live).  Anyway, the song took me back to carefree times when I went to clubs (oh my, do they still have those?).  And while I love great lyrics, the song reminds me that your lyrics don’t have to do anything; they can suck. They can be mainly the word “Sardines” and people will sing along if the beat is pumpin’.
