Helen BS: Who you calling elderly? (179* d) RE: BS: Who you calling elderly? 23 May 21


I have it planned for some time in the future when I am forced to listen to a bunch of young'uns playing what they think is old folks music, e.g. the aforementioned "We'll Meet Again" etc. I'll be up the back yelling out, "play Stairway to Heaven" or even "play something by The Sex Pistols".

Back in the mid '80' my workplace was next to a Senior Citizens' Centre. They had regular concerts which we could hear through our back window. It made me wince even then. The way I figure it, the music that older folks probably want to hear was from when they were in their twenties, so in the mid-1980's, if the clientele were in their '60's, '70's or '80's, the repertoire should be from 40, 50 or 60 years ago, i.e. the 1940's, 1930's or 1920's. Daisy Bell, written in the 1890's should not have been on the list, although maybe We'll Meet Again would have appealed to the older people in the room because it was from World War II.
