"1985" as written by Antonio Beliveau, Michael Beliveau and Jason Morris....
You party every night until your body goes snap
She don't wanna be with you when you're actin' like that
All drunk, no shame, decided to change your name
You lose, you lose, you lose

All your inhibitions
Who's gonna take it home tonight?
Well the party looks familiar
It takes you back to 1985
But you couldn't be there if you tried
And all of the glitter neon signs
Make you believe that it's alright, tonight ooohh

You take, you leave it, you run with it and go
You put it in a hiding place where nobody knows
Five minutes later, you forgot the flavor
Now you lose, you lose, you lose

All your inhibitions
Who's gonna take it home tonight?
Well the party looks familiar
It takes you back to 1985
But you couldn't be there if you tried
And all of the glitter neon signs
Make you believe that it's alright, tonight

And you feel it
Nobody can take that away from you
Wear those colors proudly: yellow and blue
Take a bow on stage and turn around
While quietly delivering the sound
Yeah!

1985, I can just see it in your eyes
And all of the glitter neon signs
Can carry you deep into the night

1985, you couldn't be there if you tried
And all of the glitter neon signs
Make you believe that it's alright, tonight

    My InterpretationThis is about alcoholism for a friends perspective.the person is looking for something but the singer can't help them to really get there and this person just drinks because it gives them that momentary feeling of joy.

    General CommentOl' Jerry is stuck in his heyday. Back in 1985 when he was the star quarterback of his high-school football team. Jerry partied hard and loved every minute of it. Now it's 2010, and Jerry is a 42 year-old suburban dad who works at the sawmill for minimum wage, thinking "What went wrong? What happened to my life?". He goes and gets absolutely smashed every chance he can to feel the same way as he did when he was somebody (Well the party looks familiar
    It takes you back to 1985) . To feel the same way he did during the best part of his life. His wife doesn't want to be with him (She don't wanna be with you when you're actin' like that). His body can't even take it anymore (You party every night until your body goes snap). Jerry thought his life would be something that mattered, but he turned out to be just another part of the rat race. A useless cog in the clock we call America.
