This played on BFS station haha. I had no clue this song was written by them. I do like BFS version better as well as most of the people on here, but this is cool.

Good, but not as good as the Bowling For Soup one.

I like BFS way better. But this is better than nothing am I right?

I prefer the BFS version, but this is still good. If I'd heard this first, maybe I'd like it better.

I've never heard this version of the song before

I've heard the BFS version a hundred times, but I just heard this one for the first time. I love how they both sound!
Report as inappropriate
Wait, I thought BFS was the original? ...I just noticed the differences between the two. Laughing my head off at this one, because I was also devastated to find out that George Michael was gay. Totally missed that one coming!

I definitely prefer Bowling For Soup's cover, but SR-71 still did a great job! BFS's version wouldn't exist without this one, so thanks xD

Is it just me, or does the lead singer REALLY sound like Weird Al Yankovich on this 1985 cover?

'Bfs was better but I love this song so I don't care

Lol everyone's like 'bfs is so much better' and to me they sound pretty much alike. I mean their voices are similar, I have to say

SR-71 are friends with Bowling for Soup. They wrote and recorded 1985 and then gifted it to Bowling for Soup because they figured it was a better fit for them.
Report as inappropriate
Wait this is the original? Bowling For Soup still did it better. XD
