Kids Today

I was very busy this morning talking to my BFFAEAEAEAE, Brittany, about how kids today are super spoiled.

We also discussed how waxing is a business expense, and we died from LOLs as how awesome our “jobs” have turned out.

ThrillerEven though Brittany is a whole 1/2 a decade younger than me, she, too, grew up listening to Huey Lewis and the News’ Fore! on vinyl. We both also had the album version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, complete with the fold-out white tiger.

You know, back in the days when young, impressionable girls thought Michael Jackson was cute and totally dateable.

I also admitted to learning I Am the Walrus off of a record player. We were pretty much the coolest 80s kids ever.

The first cassette tape I owned was Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, and the first cassette tape I bought on my own from the record store at the mall was INXS Kick.

I owned the first CD player in our house—15th birthday present—and the first CD I owned was C+C Music Factory.

Kids today won’t have a first record, a first tape, or a first CD. Our kids already have their own disconnected iPhones full of music “borrowed” from our iTunes accounts.

Why do I feel like running downstairs to my basement after reading this to make sure we still have our “Thriller” album (remember when they called albums “LPs?”)?

My parents’ copy better still be in their living room. IT BETTER.

First Tape: Michael Jackson Bad (And Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam)
First CD: Phil Collins (Yeah, I don’t get it either. I was desperate just to play something on my new electronic device. Still have it though.)
No vinyl though, sorry, but my did play the soundtrack to Jaws a lot on his record player, which might explain my aversion to records.

So I’ve been watching The Voice with my kids and they have never heard of half of the songs that these people are singing…no Phil Collins, no Cyndi Lauper, no Bonnie Raitt, no Whitney Houston. “Oh wait, is she that crazy lady that died from drugs or something?”
I have failed them. Or I HAD failed them. I immediately downloaded all of those songs onto my iPhone, and since we share an iTunes account, it downloaded the songs onto theirs as well.
And I threw in some Vanilla Ice and Biz Markie just for fun. OH BABY, YOU….
