According to this site, 1988 was really boring.
This is the schmaltziest flashbacker ever
"Do you still remember the songs playing on the radio when you were 15? Maybe it was This Is the Night by Clay Aiken. Were you in love? Who were you in love with, do you remember?
In 1988, 15 years earlier, a long time ago, the year when you were born, the song One More Try by George Michael topped the US charts. Do you know the lyrics? Do you know the tune? Sing along.
There's a kid outside, shouting, playing. It doesn't care about time. It doesn't know about time. It shouts and it plays and thinks time is forever. You were once that kid.
6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... it's 1988. There's TV noise coming from the second floor. Someone turned up the volume way too high. The sun is burning from above. These were different times. The show playing on TV is Count Duckula. The sun goes down. Someone switches channels. There's Yo! MTV Raps on now. That's the world you were born in."
