my mum was 16 in 1982. 1982 was a great year for music, in fact the whole decade was great for music. i find myself listening, singing and dancing to the great hits of the 80's. i was 16 in 2009. in 2009 the best seeling single was lady gaga's telephone. music in 2009 was awful. i'm just hoping that in 30 years the next generation isn't listening, singing and dancing to lady fecking gaga.
