Pulp’s “Disco 2000” came up on my very up-to-date iPod yesterday, and it got me thinking about songs that are focused around specific dates. These songs lose their relevancy pretty quickly. (Though “Disco 2000” is still an awesome song. And, yes, Jarvis, I would love to meet up in the year 2000. I can be Deborah, if you need me to be.)
I think everyone immediately thinks about partying like it’s 1999 when they think about songs with dates in them, but my personal favorite date song, which probably hasn’t been played since January 1, 2005, is Ruben Studdard’s magnum opus, “Sorry (2004).”
What other songs do you know that have dates in them?
