Reading a few threads on here I got to thinking about what it was like when I was a teenager, (I am now 32), and how life had changed. In my youth I didn't know what drugs were, what a paedophile was, I hardly knew anything about sex.
My worries were how I could get Morten Harket from A-ha to fall in ove with me, or whether my spot would be gone before I went back to school on Monday!
It just seems so sad the state of the world now, there doesn't seem to be any innocence left. Young kids are taking drugs, getting pregnant, and can't wait to grow up. My idea of heaven as a young teen was watching Columbo on a Saturday night while eating a nice dinner!
I think that is why as an adult now I am always listening to 80s music, A-ha, Five star, Deacon Blue etc, and watching old programmes, Columbo, Miss Marple, Some Mother's Do Av Em. I know they are naff but they put a smile on my face. Don't get me wrong I like loads of recent hard-hitting tv dramas and listen to DMX but it doesn't put me in a cheery mood, whereas if I am in a supermarket and hear an old 80s song I feel better.
What does everyone else think?
