Twitter may be overrated in The Ghost’s book, but its users have come up with their share of clever hashtags: #ff, #musicmonday, and of course, #tbt. The first two seem to have somewhat run their course, but Throwback Thursday, aka #tbt, is still going strong. So why shouldn’t GOBL get a little piece of the social media action?
I was trying to decide what would be the perfect song for the site’s first Throwback Thursday, and I have it. This song is a throwback within a throwback. Released in 2004, Salim Nourallah’s “1978” takes listeners back to the decade of disco through the eyes of an 11 year old Salim. Part sentimental, part funny, and all the lyrical wit one would expect from Mr. Nourallah, “1978” is the perfect song for your Throwback Thursday.
