I grew up in SoCal but not in the San Fernando Valley. However, there were some girls in my high school who spoke a lot like this, especially when they would say, “Like, oh my Gaaaawwwwd!” I remember a couple girls in particular I used to think were hot, until I sat near them in art class and overheard them gossiping and talking like that. I no longer thought they were hot anymore. This song came out a year after I graduated high school, and it reminded me of those girls in class. I wonder what the women those girls grew into speak like now.
This song was actually making fun of people who spoke that way, but I still found it annoying. They played it on the radio TOO MUCH for a while, then suddenly stopped playing it completely. I hadn’t heard this since the summer of 1982. For some reason it popped into my mind again, and I thought I would torture the younger generations with it.
