Buzzcocks soundtrack for AARP ad. When viewed in the context of a particularly grim Battlestar Galactica, it’s enough to give me the willies. Torture! Suicide! 30-year-old music written by teenagers used to sell retirement planning to 60-year olds! Divorce! Adultery! Heart-numbing use of the drink!
I suppose, given the episodes’ topics of faith, loyalty, love and betrayal, a better choice than “Everybody’s Happy Nowadays,” (employed, I suppose, in the faint hope of erasing the crystalline irony of the title – a quote from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World – or possibly in a fit of truly profound cluelessness) would have been “Ever Fallen in Love.”
