Dated Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Sheryl Crow's, "All I Wanna Do"
The dated Lyrics:
They drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks
Back to the phone company, the record store too
Why They're dated:
The mention of Datsuns was already dated. Datsun had already become Nissan nearly a decade before the song came out, though that can be somewhat justified by the fact that the lyrics were originally a poem written in 1986. On the other hand, the phone company and record store still made sense in both 1986 and 1994 but not so much now with the advent of cell phones and iTunes.
