I've just seen a TV advert for one of the many compilation albums that seem to go on sale at about this time every year. You might have seen the advert I'm talking about. It is for a CD called Monsters of Rock
and appears to be being sold in all the usual places. Anyway I'm watching the advert and reading the names of the artists off the screen as various clips from their different tracks are played in the background and I'm thinking Yea, this looks like a really good album! It has all the music I like and I recognise loads of the artists being listed; I think I might just ask for that for Christmas.
Just as these thoughts are done tumbling out of my head I hear the most frightening sentence a young person who's not quite of the youngest generation out there anymore can hear:
Get It For Dad!
Ouch! I'm only 20 1/2 years old yet suddenly I'm not only no longer young and trendy, I'm sufficiently old and backward as to have my tastes in music lumped together with those of men whose kids are old enough to go out shopping and buy Christmas presents for their parents! Who said anything about kids? I haven't even got a girlfriend!
I feel this trauma may leave lasting scars :(
