Gorillaz – 19 – 2000 (album: Gorillaz 2001)

This song is by Gorillaz. What a great song. I remember when I first heard it; my hubby introduced this band to me. We used to drive in the car and sing along this song. My favourite part is the “La La La La La...” it was a great musical project created by Damon Albarn from Blur and British Cartoonist Jamie Hewlett back in 1998.

I think this song talks about trying to stay cool and popular by buying all the trendy accessories’ and not expressing yourself fully. I’ve never been one for trends. While some of my girlfriends were half naked I chose to wear all black and Dr Martens shoes for a long period. Didn’t really care what other people thought of me. I loved my clothes and the music that I chose to listen to. Be whatever you want to be, do not copy others, and find your own path. That’s what this song is all about. BTW I miss my Doc Marten very much. I think I’m going to get me another pair. Check out this cool song...
