If these songs from 1998 were people then they could all legally drink now
Prepare to feel old.
A recent conversation with a friend has left me feeling slightly depressed about my own age. He correctly remarked that any child that was born during World Cup '98 would now be legally allowed to drink in a bar.
While the years wait for nobody, this got me thinking about some of those songs that could now be classified as 'fully grown adults', you know, if they were actually people.

Huh?: Let's delay our misery at feeling old.
