A Song You Used To Love But Now Hate
People of a certain age will remember this lot…
They’ll also remember some shrill woman singing the words…
I DON’T WANNA WAIT!
FOR THIS LIFE TO BE OVER!
It used to signify the weekly treat that was Dawson’s Creek.
Back when we were all 15 / 16 years old this show was the BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN IN THE WORLD EVER!!!
I recently started watching the whole entire thing from Episode 1 thanks to Netflix. I thought I’d relive my youth and reacquainte myself with Dawson, Pacey, Jen, Joey, Jack and Andie and their oh so whimsical ways and see if their adventures in the creek would be just as amazing in 2013 as it was in 1998…
Oh how wrong I was…
Some things age fantastically well.
Like Helen Mirren.
Some things don’t.
Like Jackie Stallone.
I’m afraid that Dawson’s Creek falls into the category of ‘does not age well’.
It’s taken me 15 years to realise this.
Well done to me.
So here it is.
Paula Cole and I Don’t Want To Wait.
A song I used to love… and now hate.
