A few nights ago I'm working out at the Y, when 97-Rock, a "classic rock" station in Buffalo, comes over the speakers with a song that sends a teenage girl on the machine next to me into a certain level of excitement. She begins babbling to the friend with her: "Oh wow, I know this song! My dad loves this song! He said they played it at my parents' wedding!"
The song? "Every Rose Has Its Thorn", by Poison. Which came out in 1988. When I was already older than that girl is now.
(Apropos of nothing, despite my love of 80s hair-band metal music, I never liked Poison. They were pretty much the Wonder Bread of 80s hair-bands, which is probably why crap like "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" still gets airplay.)
