No, I mean: “99 Red Balloons.”
Wait. No. “99 Luftballoons.”
Remember the song “99” by Toto? Is this number being assigned to a girl? Maybe a robot? The price of a hot dog and a Coke at the skating rink in 1979? The number of angels that will fit between the teeth of a roach clip?
Toto! Such a weird band – and in keeping with most 80s bands all the guys looked like furniture movers. But especially weird is the fact that I remember loving that song as a ten-year-old radio nerd.
Here’s the thing, though, why I’m writing this post: it’s the 99th post on this blog. The next post will be the 100th.
