Now I am officially 128 years old


Of course, when they start using Human League to sell dandruff shampoo, I'm cashing in my chips.

UPDATE: Now here's a good cloudy Tuesday contest: what would be the absolutely worst use of 1980s songs to sell products to aging post-boomers?

I'm thinking 1.) the Violent Femmes Add it up to promote Charles Schwaab's new 401K retirement plans.
2.) Baby-got-back to promote the new female talking oven mitt for Roy Rogers. Or for Hardees.

3. But of course, Duran Duran's (or, as the girls used to refer to it in the day, Duran^2) Hungry like the wolf for the new breed of Euro chi-chi Hungry Man dinners.

4. Last, and certainly least, the Hall & Oates disaster epic ballad Sarah Smile for the new age fluffy poetry reading sensitive guy male enhancement pills.

5. Or, anything by the Dead Milkmen to sell products relating to digestive and/or prostate medicines.

"Tainted Love" for pharm commercials selling herpes remedies.

"Tainted love, ohhhhhh! Tainted love...
Now I feel I want to...
Run away, I've got to...
Get away from this tainted love you give, ohhhhh!"

When I heard the guy from Soft Cell got killed in an auto accident I had this song running in my head all day. Glad I could share the wealth...

Oh, and "The Safety Dance" for any commercial.

Make the kids wonder "what the hell were Mom and Pop thinking?" as they groove to The Safety Dance!

There is no great genius without some touch of madness.
