“I turned 40 today. “
I’m pretty sure that I have shoes that old. :-)
I just heard Nirvana on the oldies station
I just heard them on the elevator on my way back up from lunch.
Good One and then there is this one as well:
“The older I get the older old is...”
Same reaction when I heard Bon Jovi on 105.7 Cleveland.
I am sure they are fine shoes indeed! ;)
Each day I thank God my 9-year old son still likes the stuff I like. When he hears a car go down the street blasting that annoying boom boom sound or hip hop, he says its dumb-dumb music.
He likes listening to a 60s oldies station during the day, and he loves going to bed listening to my Edgar Bergen / Charlie McCarthy old time radio cassettes. I stopped asking him to stop laughing and go to bed, hoping that this continues.
I find myself listening to the “oldies” station more and more now, especially with lady gaga and the like on everywhere else!
I know what you mean. They used to say music was marketed to the 18 - 35 demographic but today they calculate that in months rather than years.
Oh, my son does like some of my ‘70s and ‘80s stuff. He’s really into Clapton’s older stuff. And Pink Floyd fascinates him. He’s even sat through “The Wall.” Guitar Hero and Rock Band makes it cool for kids to like their parents music these days.
But, what the heck. They're well packaged and are making millions off the foolishness of youth. :-)
With the advent of IPods, I'll make my millions later, selling Gen Y (soon to be referred to as the 'hunh?' generation) hearing aids.
ROFLOL! You do realize Kurt died in 1994 which was 16 years ago right?
Happy Birthday...don’t feel bad I’ll be 50 in 9 days.Where did the time go?
When I first heard it I thought “EWWWW” then they posted their photos side by side.I never realized they looked so a like it’s scary.
there is an Best of Nirvana album available in the Muzak catalog.
Also a Best of Grunge.
Welcome to old age.
Welcome to old age.
We saw Plant with Alison Krauss at Mohegan Sun two or three years ago. They were fantastic.
That sounds about right!
Been waiting for this day (sorry..but the 90’s grunge/pop/soft rock) stuff was crap when it came out when I was a child/early teen and still is! Good ridance (now what about real oldies from the ‘Godlen Era’ 50-60’s..
And two, my opinion, which seems to be more vocally shared even by teenagers today, is that today's music sucks. With Youtube and mp3, they can find older music they can connect to which doesn't suck as much, but is older.
I could never get into grunge stuff when it was actually coming out. It wasn’t until college. And even then it is mostly Soundgarden.
