For my second writing assignment of the week, I’ve completed a “status report” that relates to the ’80s in obvious ways:
In accordance with all CIA and Time Travel guidelines, CIA agent Zane Burk has utilized the federal time travel machine to jump into the year 1984 to calculate differences in “groove” between the ‘80s and now. A huge finding from ‘84 is the song, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” by Deniece Williams. This song’s groove rating is off the charts! Burk found that in almost any instance, when this song came on, it’s listeners would immediately start dancing. Such was not the case in the modern year, 2020 – listeners of modern-day popular songs may sing along or tap a foot, but the amount of dancing has severely decreased. Another popular song of that year, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by popular band WHAM! had the same effect on its listeners. Jive levels increased by 50 steps when this hit ‘80s tune came on, but when “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X, one of the most popular songs of 2019 comes on, Jive levels only increase by a maximum of 15 steps. The CIA would like to formally declare that more dancing would be a huge positive to modern life, and would like to make a motion to require more dancing in daily human lives.
