The plastic bracelets on my wrists
And my lacy fingerless gloves
Give the clock a backward twist
To the era that I loved.

But, no matter where I go,
I hear, to my chagrin,
“Does she know what century she’s in?”
Gotta find a way to prove
I’m not demented, I’m
An invitation to a better time,

I won’t surrender, won’t give up or give in
Till the world has realized
That it could be happy if it would just live like
The ’80s had never died!

Eurythmics, Bananarama, Sparks,
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark,
The Buggles, Erasure, Art of Noise,
B-52's and the Pet Shop Boys,
The Cure, Motels, Spandau Ballet,
’Til Tuesday, Katrina and the Waves,
Yazoo, Animotion, Book of Love,
New Order, the Fixx and Culture Club.

I show my friends and neighbors how
They can add some height to their hair,
Yet instead of saying “Wow!”
They react as if they’re scared.

Still, I shave it on the side,
I dye it blue and pink,
Add a bow and ask ’em “Whatcha think?”
Even when their answer is
To laugh, I persevere;
I have to for the sake of yesteryear,

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
