Oldies But Goodies

About 3 weeks ago my mom celebrated her 75th birthday and yesterday my father-in-law celebrated the same milestone. You can imagine how old those events made ME feel. The largest folder of music on my iPhone is named “Oldies” and I find that there is less and less of today’s music that I find appealing.

Speaking of oldies music, some of the artists from the 60’s and 70’s are re-releasing their hits with new lyrics to accommodate those of us who are growing older. Good news for those feeling a little older and missing those great old tunes…

Herman’s Hermits – “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Walker”

The Bee Gees – “How Can You Mend A Broken Hip”

The Temptations – “Papa’s Got A Kidney Stone”

Ringo Starr – “I Get By With A Little Help From Depends”

Marvin Gaye
– “I Heard It Through The Grape Nuts”

Procol Harem – “A Whiter Shade Of Hair”

Johnny Nash – “I Can’t See Clearly Now”

Leo Sayer – “You Make Me Feel Like Napping”

ABBA – “Denture Queen”

Paul Simon
– “Fifty Ways To Lose Your Liver”

Roberta Flack – “The First Time I Ever Forgot Your Face”

– “Once, Twice, Three Times To The Bathroom”

Bobby Darin
– “Splish, Splash, I Was Havin’ A Flashback”

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
