TaraElla Original 2014 - Not That Kind of Retro

The inspiration for this came from several things. One of which was a discussion with a friend several months ago about one of my favourite pop artists, who was a more traditionally inclined person. The discussion then turned to marriage equality, and my friend said that the artist we were discussing was unlikely to support it. I didn't think so. Hence this.




This song is now available at the TaraElla Google Play shop.

LYRICS: Not That Kind of Retro

Some friends say I'm old fashioned
Guess I'm like my parents too
They long for the 70s, I long for the 90s
No I really don't like how some things changed
There's a lot of retro stuff in my music
I really don't know how to twerk

'98 is still yesterday to me
Some people may think that
Our type always clings to the past
No matter if it's good or bad
But if that's what you think
Then you're wrong

I'm not that kind of retro
I'm not afraid to speak up
I won't take those excuses
I refuse to be blind

I'm not that kind of retro
I won't put up with bigotry
Bullying is still bullying to me
Even if it's traditional.

Some friends think I just don't get it
What's wrong with a few rude scenes
What a puritan you are, you don't let us have fun
No I really can't stand some things these days
There's a lot of retro stuff in my music
I don't care what is cool

'98 is still yesterday to me
Some people may think that
Someone like me just won't care about
Things like Marriage equality
But if that's what you think
Then you're wrong

I'm not that kind of retro
I'm not afraid to speak up
I won't take those excuses
I refuse to be blind

I'm not that kind of retro
I won't put up with bigotry
Bullying is still bullying to me
Even if it's traditional.

I may like the old stuff
But I certainly have a heart too
Sometimes I'm Torn
But I will stand strong
I cannot see people suffer and do nothing, because

I'm not that kind of retro
I'm not afraid to speak up
I won't take those excuses
I refuse to be blind

I'm not that kind of retro
I'm not afraid to speak up
Bullying is still bullying to me
Even if it's traditional.

I'm not that kind of retro
I'm not afraid to speak up
I won't take those excuses
I refuse to be blind

I'm not that kind of retro
I won't put up with bigotry
Bullying is still bullying to me
Even if it's traditional.
