My high school anthem

You know, I haven't heard anyone use the term "New Romance" in years and years and years. But, back then, it was a universe.

It's unclear whether Modern English never had another hit because they never wrote another good hook, or just because their front-man was much too unattractive to sustain stardom in a genre that was all about the look.

Ah, they were simpler times. I love the naive stagecraft in the video.

But what a gem.

It's been long enough, now, that I don't remember whether I ever made out with anyone with this song playing in the background, or whether I just thought about it so damn much it only seems that way.
