The 90s

Sticking with the challenge from yesterday, a fun one this time. Still a Villanelle, loosely on the ‘Country life’ theme … very loosely; like, “Country House” by Blur.

The 90s

The joys and trials of 90s songs,
And all those precious memories –
You just can’t help but sing along.

You know Celine’s heart will go on,
While an ice cap shapes history –
The joys and trials of 90s songs.

Oasis or Blur, number one?
Pop music’s full of rivalries –
You just can’t help but sing along.

Never forget where you’ve come from;
Take That are stunned when Robbie leaves –
The joys and trials of 90s songs.

A novelty that’s not so strong?
Plastic, not porcelain; Barbie –
You just can’t help but sing along.

Euphoria – the dance goes on;
You may cringe at your two left feet –
The joys and trials of 90s songs,
You just can’t help but sing along.

    • I think because I was a teenager in the 90s, it makes me feel nostalgic, but I agree the 70s and 80s had more class. My dad was 40 when I was born, so he was introducing me to people like Buddy Holly – anything from the 50s onwards. I really respect Buddy; he packed so much song-writing into his short life.
