This song was all the rage when I was in middle school! Everyone loved the old school vibe and it was even filmed in my hometown (0:27 Spoiler alert: "El Segundo, CA 1974" is actually a sketchy drive-in on a really ugly street NOT in California). Me and all my pals knew this song word for word...and in hindsight it was probably a bit of vicarious living since, being the brace-faced, lanky-limbed and greasy-haired 13 year olds that we were, we weren't going on a lot of "first dates"...like, at all.
