In the office we listen to RTL2. It's our compromise. Debbie wants classic rock. I'm happy with classic rock, but would prefer a bit of pop thrown in. I at least want to hear American Boy once a day.
So RTL2 gives us a bit of rock, a bit of pop and lots of 'old' stuff. By 'old', I mean 80's and 90's. Not old at all really.
However, we had a moment yesterday afternoon. I was happily singing along to 'Sweet Dreams' by the Eurythmics - quite the vision I was too, as you can well imagine - and Debbie said she didn't know the song.
"How do you not know this song? It's a classic 80's track"
"Well, I think my dad likes it" said Debbie. She sure knows how to hurt, that one.
It turns out that the song wasn't released when she was a small child, as I imagined. It was actually released before she was born.
The song was released in 1983 and Debbie was born in 1985. This really stunned me. It made me feel every one of my thirtysomething years.
What I don't understand is how someone born in 1985 is already at work, holding down a decent job?
Surely she should still be at school?
