"Goodbye Seventies" as written by and Alison Moyet....
To your credit to the thirty faces you created
To your headache to the shape of the 1980's
I'm glad that we don't hear you any more
I'm tired of playing in your fashion war

To the lights to the trend setting in your head
Sunday nights tear from the youth cults already dead
I'm glad that we don't hear you and more
I'm tired of fighting in your fashion war

[Chorus:]
Goodbye seventies

To your credit to the thirty faces you created
To your subscription for the million copies of 1980
I'm glad that we don't hear you any more
I'm tired of losing in your fashion war

[Chorus]

    Song MeaningAwesome song off an awesome album. This is one of those iconic albums where there's literally not one bad song.

    The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory. Song was written in 1982 (maybe 1981). A lot of people were sick of the vapid self-absorption of the 1970s and hoping the '80s brought about a change of consciousness. Too bad they didn't...
