Why Me?

by Vickie Retro

Sandra - Maria Magdalena
How many times a day does someone say those infamous words "Why Me?".

Why am I not in love? Why can't I be with you? Why am I alone on the holidays?  Why did my lover lie? Why can't it be Halloween all the time? Why Me?
Well, you can cry "Why Me?" all day long but it won't change anything and you might start to sound like a fire engine ...annoying to most.:)

Is asking that sentiment more popular this decade than in the 80's? I wonder?
I believe the 80's was one of the most positive times but I am a retro girl at heart so I am biased. Well, not to shy away from a challenge, I discovered you are not alone in your "Why Me?" whining no matter what the decade...
There are more than 20 songs from the 80's with a "Why Me?" message in the lyrics or title according to http://www.searchinthe80s.com/.
