Well I ain't no new messiah,
But I'm close enough for rock and roll.
- "Rockin' Into the Night", .38 Special, 1979
(Heard while having a burrito a Koo-Koo-Roo this afternoon. The music piped in is an interesting amalgam of tunes spanning from the '50s to the '90s. When I walked in Prince's "I Would Die 4 U" was playing. No metal or hip hop, but there is new wave and doo-wop.)
Is it still "new wave" when it's getting played on an oldies station?
