What does a party celebrating 50 years of Newman Enterprises have to do with the song “Holding Back The Years”
In a simple existential way, the daytime serial is much like the song. Simply Red is just going to “keep holding on,” just as watcher of daytime drama watch for 47 years holding on for the end — the end of a new beginning. We want the story plot lines to be good and crisp and quick, but we don’t want the show to end. And would they announce it if on the day that the characters of Genoa City had wrapped up every issue and their story after 47 year was over, how sad would we be?
We’d be as sad as Simply Red on the train in that video.
