Once again, this is a sure sign that you are proudly primed to let your geezer flag fly: love of the "oldies."
Can anyone tell me, with absolute certainty, the specific day in their lives when the pursuit of NEW music took a backseat to the love of the oldies -- those wonderful tunes of yesteryear? Clearly, I remember craving the new stuff, but I don't know when that changed...it did, though.
I remember thinking that I was going to turn into my parents...maybe that was the clear sign. My Dad and Mom kept singers like Patsy Cline and Bobby Vinton alive like they just cut a new tune. They were the poster children for folks who hang on to the oldies and spin those old discs like it was a religious obligation.
Now, I'm that person. Pass me that Monkee album, please...
- If you've played more than three songs older than 25 years in the last week...
- If you have all the audio mediums represented (LP, 45, 8 track, cassette, CD, mp3) in your home at this very minute...
YOU MIGHT BE A GEEZER.
I'm only mentioning this because I'd like to see your playlist...so I can borrow the good stuff.
