I just got back from my 30th high school reunion in Minot, North Dakota.
It was great to see so many of my lifelong friends and classmates. Most of us have spread out across the country, and we all commented on how comfortable and familiar it was to be back together in our ever-expanding (oil boom) hometown. Good nostalgia ran amok.
Too bad I can't say the same about my reunion with the era's pop music. Not a lot of favorable nostalgia in that area. The popular songs of my high school years (1979-83) were just as tough to listen to now as they were in high school.
Is it just me? Was it just my era? I've never thought of myself as an elitist, but maybe I am.
