Today, the local commercial radio station that I listen to featured the year 1965 in their weekday "Ten at 10" feature, in which the program director plays "ten great songs from one great year". Well, 1965 was before my time, but the music selection was awesome. Anyway, the mention of the year 1965 reminded me of the opening line of the Smithereens' song Behind the Wall of Sleep. Despite the Lovecraftian title, the song is really about lead singer Pat DiNizio crushing on a girl:
I love the fact that the band looks like a bunch of grad students.
The girl that Mr DiNizio was enamored with had hair like Jeanie Shrimpton back in 1965, so I guess her 'do looked a lot like the 'do sported by Ms Shrimpton on her Newsweek cover.
Funny thing, nostalgia, hearing 1965 referenced made me nostalgic for an 80's tune written by a guy with 60's nostalgia... is this a case of metanostalgia?
