Jaret Reddick, the spiky haired lead singer and rhythm guitarist for Bowling For Soup turns 40 today.
You may know Bowling for soup from the dancy, nostalgic cover of ‘1985′.
Incidently, that makes them a perfect example of a one-hit wonder band. Their brilliant cover of SR-71’s ‘1985’ propelled them right up the charts. But not for the good it would seem, as everything they made after, just got lost in the 1985 hype.
One hit wonder or not, this song does live up to the hype. It just takes one listen to get you humming through the day. Why?
Cause we’re still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985!
