Golden Oldies and our kids.
« on: September 12, 2010, 01:47:54 PM »
So my 17 year old son walks in as I am listening to music on the "puter. He is looking at the list and comments, "I didn't think you would listen to ACDC. I asked if he has any Idea how long they had been around. "No, not really"  :roll:

Since 1973, That is our music.

My daughter was one of those that did the census this year. When she had to go out on the muddy roads, or the deep sandy ones cause everybody kept getting stuck, I would take her. Fun way to spend time with your daughter. After doing her questioning of a fellow human being, she got back into the vehicle and heard the song I was singing along with and made the comment, "That song isn't old enough for you to know". Now I don't know who was singing it this time, and it was a different version than I had ever heard, but I informed her that the song has been around a long time.

Yeah I know you know it...... "Knock on wood"

My 4 year old has now switched his favorite song from Fat Bottom Girls to Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple (his mother is thankful for him dumping Fat Bottom Girls).   I just wish he would learn the words instead of the guitar rips.  People are starting to think there is something wrong with him singing that in public.

I would guess you might know that for some of us oldies but goodies are a bit more aged than AC/DC?

I am 56
Average age of AC/DC band members is 60.

I was at Disney World last week with the family. They had this daily "American Idol" competition that my girls wanted to watch so I went with them. I was amused that nearly all the songs the kids were singing were 30-40 years old. The kid that won that day sang "Unchained Melody" (written in 1955, made famous in 1965 by the Righteous Brothers).

Later, my kids tried to teach me how to play "Guitar Hero" at the arcade. I did lousy, but at least I knew all the songs, again, mostly from the 70's.

I am really not that much older (soon 61) yet my definition of oldies are tunes from the late 50's and 60's.  must say I never cared much for acts like AC/DC.  I was more a Bob Dylan, Jimmie Hendrix and often times Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings kind of guy.

sorry if I stepped on toes with the age reference.

Weren't no toes stepped on.

I like a wide range of music. Some "oldies" from way back before I was born. Then the classical, Bach, Beethoven.

Country..... when it was country music.

Rock from the '50s to early '90s. And some of the more resent stuff.

Some heavy metal but not much.

And on and on.....
