hmmm... a lot of these apply to me, even though I was a little boy in the 80's... especially the part about the smurfs and star wars action figures... I remember a guy named jimmy sneaking a 1970's issue of playboy into class (3rd grade) that he jacked from his father's collection; I thought it was a "special issue" of Weekly Reader on human anatomy... I thought the pull-out centerfold was the "free animal poster." I innocently asked our teacher why my Weekly Reader wasn't like jimmy's and ended up getting him a detention...

I remember having crushes on the OG Jamie Somers and at least a couple of the OG Charlie's Angels.

If you possibly recognize these lyrics:

sha na na na, na na na na, sha na na na na

Autumn turns to winter and then winter turns to spring,
its not just a season to know its goes for everything.
clouds can turn to rain and then it just might snow
You gotta take lesson from mother nature and if you do you'll know.

[chorus]
Well its time to change
then its time to change
move by the time come along for the ride, dont you see
when its time to change you've got to rearrange
move your heart to what your gonnabe.
sha na na na na na na sha na na na na na

day by day its hard to see the changes you've been through
a little bit of living a little bit of growing all adds up to you
every boys a man inside
a girls a women too
and if you wanna reach your destiny its what you've got to do

[chorus]
Well its time to change
when its time to change
move by the time come along for the ride, dont you see
when its time to change you've got to rearrange
move your heart to what your gonna be.
sha na na na na na na na, sha na na na na na

[chorus]
Well its time to change
when its time to change you've got to rearrange
move your heart to what your gonna be.
sha na na na na na na na, sha na na na na
