I think it a quaint revelation that the author of this article must not be old enough to know of the irrelevance to Joan Jett's dime-in-a-jukebox lyric: Jukes costs more than that by then anyway, (2 selections/quarter in 1982)!I'm sure she knew but I don't think she cared....she needed a one-syllable word and the line still worked anyway (it STILL works!). . .Not that I give a rats posterior about the song OR Joan Jett.
LUV JOAN JET!!!! SHE ROCKS THE HOUSE!!!!! BEST ROCKER OF ALL TIME! THIS GIRL CAN SING, BABY!!!!!!!!!!
You could also include The Turtles' "Happy Together." The line "Call me up, invest a dime" is doubly outdated. Pay phones are a dying species, and if you find one, you have to pay a quarter or fifty cents to make a call. It's still a fun song, though.
Favorite Joan Jett quote of ALL time: "Fuck you Buffalo, I'm never comin' back here again!"
lmfao whats that from???
Maybe I'm getting old, but I seem to remember that the sound from jukeboxes was much better than the music I hear from my Ipod.
Wait, not only does music now cost $1.29, but jukeboxes have become obsolete. So maybe Joan Jett should say"I Love Rock n Roll, so give another dollar to the DJ baby!"
Go to Johnny Rockets in Syracuse, NY. Jukebox still costs 5 cents.
I thought it was a syllable thing...I mean "put another quarter in the jukebox, baby" would have sounded kinda wrong.
If you want "expired lyrics", I don't think it gets any more expired than The Who's "Talkin' 'bout My Generation" with that wonderful line "Hope I die before I get old." Um, lads, it's too late for that . . .
Well apart from Keith Moon who was only 32 when he crashed and burned.
Lets go way back. How about Eartha Kitt wanting "Santa Baby" to bring her a "'54 convertable too, light blue"!
