Who wrote the song? I've never heard of it.

SR71 originally. They decided it "sounded more like a Bowling for Soup song" and gifted it to them, becoming one of their biggest hits.

Bowling for Soup has a new-ish song out not called "Getting old Sucks (but everybody's doing it)" that does seem like a fitting follow up to this though.

The original is better! "Never knew George was gay! Hope they'd hook up one day!" 😂

As a person who was an adult by 1985, this made me smile.

Guess someone needs to make a sequel song about her daughter who’s still pining for… two thousand… two thousand… two thousand and four!

There's an updated version been around on tiktok for a couple of years, it threw me for a loop 😭 I felt so old hearing it lol.

Honestly as I'm almost 29 years old I find that I am the woman that Bowling for Soup was talking about. I grew up with this being a big part of my youth and now it's just hit me so much harder.

sr71 did the original version. bowling for soup covered it. bowling for soup also covered "Stacy's mom" as another big hit.

Until this moment, I didn't even know they covered Stacy's Mom. All I've ever heard was the Fountains of Wayne version.
