So I’m driving down the streets, minding my own business as is my style and brand, when Fame comes on the radio. Not one of the favorites, but it’s been a while, so why not let it play?
Any way, the chorus comes up, and right at “(Fame) I’m gonna live forever/Baby, remember my name” I suddenly realize I can’t remember the last time I heard of the song. Or of the movie/TV show it was attached to. Hell’s teeth, who’s even singing it? (Irene Cara, for the record.)
I was going to go on about how it’s amazing what sticks in popular culture and what doesn’t, but Fame has had a long running Broadway show, a reality TV show, and a remake in 2009. I knew none of that. Well, the reality TV show rings bells, but beyond that.
So the question is, am I out of touch or am I out of touch? And do I care?
Catchy song, though.
