Song rant: "1985"

Back in the '90's, there was a song by SR-71 called "Right Now." No one remembers the name, but it's still a staple in soundtracks for teen movies (e.g. "Harold and Kumar").

The band's a one hit wonder. Normally, I'm fine with that, but they wrote a second hit: "1985," a song made famous by Bowling for Soup.

Most bands never write a hit. A few lucky ones write just one and are labeled one hit wonders. It's sad to see a band get so close to a second hit and remain a one hit wonder.
