NEW: “I Need Quarters”

This is a shot in the dark…if you even remember this, you’re in the minority. In 1983 there was a song by Joe Walsh (formerly of The Eagles) that addressed the video/arcade craze that was going on at the time – the song is “Space Age Whiz Kids”. It’s an account of how pinball was being replaced by video games.

One of the last lines uttered in the song was “I….need….quarters!” – I’ve never forgotten this almost-creepy reference to sheer addiction! And yet, it wound up on one of my t-shirts and for good reason; I still hear myself saying it 30 years later!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy the lo-fi video:
