Blame It On The Boogie


Twitter went crazy.

Mean people told mean jokes.

Nice people said sweet things.

The world turned.

Brilliant Pop Music Lives Forever.

These were the last words Steven Wells wrote:

And of course all this bollocks is written by an idiot who has polished his image as an existentialist, atheist hard-man and anti-mope, forever sneering at the tribes who wallow in self-pity — the gothers, the emo kids, the Smiths fans — the whole 900-block-wide marching band composed entirely of the white male urban middle classes who are convinced that (as the most affluent and pampered human beings who have ever walked the planet) theirs is a story worth hearing. Blissfully unaware that they are but a few generations away from regular visits to the doctor who would wind parasitic worms from their beer bloated assholes using sticks.

You could blame this fallacy on poor education, cultural deterioration, or simple moral decline.

Me? I blame it on sunshine. I blame it on the moonlight. I blame it on the boogie.

    That freaked me out this morning when I suddenly remembered Swells column and his last words being Jackson 5 lyrics.
