Lazy Sunday Music: Really, Really, Old School. Really.
Posted November 17, 2013on:
Good Sunday, Widdershins. Today is the official end of my middle-aged years. Tomorrow, I turn 65. I’m not really whining, as I consider aging to be better than the obvious alternative, but I am now. officially. oooooooooold.
Oh, I really should not complain. I would not have grown up in any other time or place in history. I witnessed some amazing changes in American life, law, customs, and social norms and mores. It was quite a ride going from the days of June Cleaver all the way to Woodstock, and I learned a lot along the road. The years since 1948 have been transformative, and I’m delighted to have been even a tiny part of the changes that have come about.
There’s been a good deal of music written about age, aging, and old folks. I must have found fifty or more while researching this piece, and I’ve listed my favorites below. Please join my
pity party pre-celebration of the “Big 65” by posting music or anything else that strikes your fancy in this wide open thread.
(1) Don’t Blink – Kenny Chesney (2007)
(2) Both Sides Now – Judy Collins, 1969
(3) Touch of Grey – Grateful Dead, 1987
(4) My Generation – The Who, 1965
(5) Too Old to Rock ‘n’ Roll, Too Young to Die – Jethro Tull, 1976
