Song by the Smashing Pumpkins on both their Mellon Collie and the infinite sadness and Greatest Hits CDs.
Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all
And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin dues down to see
That we don't even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope
Justine never knew the rules,
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made, I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of sound
As you can see there's no one around

Chuck: Damn, he's pulling a 79.
Bob: Say your good-byes, you won't see him again for awhile.
Chuck: Shit, he borrowed my playboys.
Bob: Lost cause, best to move on.

Rare birth defect in which the fetus fails to develop any spinal structures while in the womb. As a result, the head fully develops within the rectal cavity, in which it remains throughout the patient's life. Marked cognitive deficiency is often a side effect due to the lack of oxygen the brain receives during the formative years. No known cure, and no safe surgical method has been found for extracting the head from the patient's rectal cavity.
Tom: Why do you always have your head up your ass?
Bradley: Because I suffer from 1979 Syndrome.

The two years that must have been pretty exciting to have lived through in recent memory. We had high crime rates, highest murder rates ever, music genre battles. Jimmy Carter being replaced by Ronald Reagan. Lots of good albums released from loads of music genres. All in all, both seemed to be pretty baffling; with tons of confusion and division.
2020, 2021 is beginning to look similar to 1979, 1980.

"One day Parliament were traveling around in the mothership fooling around with the Funk, when George Clinton kicked the Funk clean overboard.

That was July 2nd, 1979. The day the Funk died"
