I sighed and pulled up YouTube for a five minute lesson on Adam Ant and the New Romantics / Second British Invasion from the late seventies/early eighties.
He now won’t stop complaining about having lost five minutes of his life that he’ll never get back. He was especially horrified when I admitted that this song goes through my head frequently, as I “don’t drink, don’t smoke” and am, by many standards, a goody two shoes. “It’s like I don’t even know you”, he said.
