From the album Underground Radio (EP)

I wrote the lyrics for this during lunch hour at a guitar workshop in Toronto. Subconsciously, I filched the line "Radio playing that forgotten song" and when I realized it, I decided to go all-in. Musically it's in the style of Booker T and the MGs, but the vocals took it in another direction. I tacked on some chaotic orchestra parts and "Louie, Louie" riffs at the end.

Lyrics

A long time ago when we were cool
We were wild, broke all the rules
Radio playing that forgotten song
Driving the beat
To the setting sun

That was the past
It ain't coming back
That was then and this is now

I keep playing "Bang a Gong"
Wondering when I'm gonna get it on
Everyone else is getting old
I want the world and I want it now
Don't get stuck in the past
It ain't coming back
That was then and this is now

As I look ahead many years
Don't wanna be reelin' in the tears
I wanna make a dent in this world
Baby, baby, won't you be my girl?

Don't live in the past
It ain't coming back
That was then and this is now
