The new '80s

Posted by Bobby Hankinson July 29, 2007 10:21 PM


After my latest Hanging With Hanson, I had been craving some old-school '90s jams. I headed over to My So-Called '90s Night at the Common Ground in Allston Friday and boy was I in luck. The DJ spun the brothers Hanson, of course, and lots of other classic tunes like the New Radicals' "You Get What You Give," Los del Rios' "Macarena," and "Barbie Girl" by Aqua. I utilized the request notebook by his set-up and boogied-down to two of my faves, "Rhythm is a Dancer" by Snap! and "Another Night" by the Real McCoy.

As I glanced around the packed dance floor at the crowd of hipsters shouting out the lyrics to "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, something dawned on me. Now that we've reached 2007 is it time we got nostalgic for the '90s?

If it means I can find somewhere to dance the night away to La Bouche, then so be it.
