22.And if someone were to write a song today like Bowling for Soup's cover of SR-71's "1985" and set it back the same number of years, it would be called "2003."
23.If Back to the Future were created today and set the same number of years back, it would take place in 1992. 1992!!!
24.Also, Marty would be traveling to the year when Aladdin was a hit movie!
25.While, if Now and Then came out today, it would take place in 1997.

27.Britney Spears' music now gets played on the oldies station. ON THE OLDIES STATION.
28.And so does Avril Lavigne's.
