here's a great early reggae song

if anybody knows whose funeral they are referring to, I've been curious about this one for a while.

Do decades count? After The Goldrush?

Look at Mother Nature
On the run
In the 1970s…

And, Eighties by Killing Joke.

Prince thought we should party like it was 1999.

let's party like it's 1999

With one exception, Prince (RIP) wouldn't let Weird Al Yankovic parody his songs. Yankovic has even claimed that one year where he and Prince were assigned to sit in the same row at the AMAs, he got a telegram from Prince's management company, demanding he not make eye contact with the artist (!!!).

But he did manage this lyric in "Amish Paradise".

I'm a man of the land, I'm into discipline
Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin
But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine
Then tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699
