Omg the 70s and 80s are back!

Was in the kitchen preping dinner when I heard this song. Curiosity piqued, I went to check it out: what was a song from the 70s/80s doing on the telly during prime time? This song totally brings me back to the days we call retro, though retro's a pretty tricky term these days, with my students telling me that Britney's earlier songs from the 90s are also "retro". ;)

Love the song, not so the ad, even if it's Gucci by Gucci. ;)

P.s: Who would have known that they originally wanted to title the song "Pain in the Ass"?!



Heart Of Glass by Blondie
Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind
Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing there's no peace of mind
If I fear I'm losing you it's just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I'm the one you're using, please don't push me aside
We coulda made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love's true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind
