Just How Terrifyingly Tuned I Am to the Early 80s
I’m listening to one of my online radio stations, whose app I minimized and volume I turned down to talk to my wife on the phone. When I hung up I turned up the speaker volume I heard two bars of a song I’d never heard before and instantly thought “Damn, that’s the Three O’Clock.” Who I hadn’t heard in, oh, twenty years. Maximized the radio program: “With Cantaloupe Girlfriend,” by the Three O’Clock.
Two bars, man. I’m scared. My brain should be filled with things other than the basic tonal template of The Three O’Clock, you know?
So that you may be afflicted with the same horrifying condition, the video from the one song of the Three O’Clock most people who survived the 80s have even the slightest memory of: “Jet Fighter.”
Yes, it’s damn catchy, in that distinctive and oh-so-odd early 80s way.
That’s two early 80s videos in two days, I know. I apologize for that.
