Sold Out Adolescence

I'm at the FD. With the exception of a very small amount of FoxNews (or, perhaps, Faux News, if you prefer) I watch no TV. Except here, where I tend to get exposed to a few hours of TV over the course of a 24-hour shift. In the past 30 minutes, I have been exposed to advertising utilizing music by Modern English, Bow Wow Wow, and Depeche Mode (and not even second generation Depeche Mode but actually something off of Speak and Spell; Vince Clark). These are songs that had significant importance to me as a young person; now they have been sold by the artists to sell crap that no one needs.

I feel sick.

Oh, please. Bow wow wow? They had one hit song, ever. I don't care whatever else is in the repertoire, they probably need the funds. And Depeche Mode? Dave needs to pay for all that heroin rehab.

Harrumpf.

I like BWW's whole first album. And I would, too; What's-her-name's backup band were the Ants, wooed over by Malcolm McLaren.

The DM song was off the first album which was done by Vince Clark; he later did the music for Yaz (Yazoo) and Erasure.

Clark's bandmate Andy Bell is positive; perhaps he needs funds for healthcare.
