2018, chapter 46: ‘Better When I’m Dancing’ by Meghan Trainor (nr. 158)

Chainsmoker is falling apart from magically controlling an army. Her co-leader, Little Mix, has had a much easier time and has not noticed how it has affected her friend. So when she finds Chainsmoker falling apart by herself, she tries to pull her back together by cheering her up. And since dancing always makes Little Mix feel better, she suggests that they go dancing like they used to.

They can still run the revolution together and Chainsmoker can stay in control. And while Chainsmoker isn’t the best dancer, Little Mix is sure it’ll make her feel better – be therefore be better in general.

38: ‘Back to the 80’s’ by Aqua

It was in the 80’s Natasha worked at Service and Devotion and first began dating Steven. This is now years ago and the two are sitting together watching the 80’s with technology, that makes it seem as if they are in fact back there when she helped Service and Devotion put satellites in space, before Harmony surpasses her and their then-boss, Ronald Reagan.

They see the trends of the 80’s again: Don Johnson from Miami Vice and his style, commodore 64, Soap,  Rocky, Cherry coke, Mr. T, Twisted Sisters on MTV, Iron Maiden, 7UP, Bananarama, Breakfast Club, David Hasselhoff, too many man with heavy make-up on, too many poodles with guitars and Ferris Bueller.

They agree, that those were the days. M&M was just a snack back then. Huey Lewis was the news. The two of them went flying with Tom Cruise.

Natasha sees the things, she loved in particular: Cosby, Rubik’s Cube, Dynasty, Moon Boots, Devo, Barber Curls, Poltergeist and Barbie Girls, all still standing tall, with a big smile on her face.

Confused? Read ”What you need to know” (found in the sidebar) to find out what this blog is about. Follow the tags around to figure out, what happened before or read the whole thing in the proper order by adding /?order=asc to ‘https://songbysongblog.wordpress.com;. I recommend ‘Service and Devotion’, but ‘Steven’, ‘Natasha’ and ‘Natasha and Steven’ would also give you some background information as well as ‘They/Them’, I guess? There are a lot of tags, that might give some background information, but ‘Service and Devotion’ has the only necessary information, is what I’m saying.

Also: this is the second song that might suggest this race/species/whatever, these people are, can fly. I can’t wait until/if the narrative lets me explore that.
