Oldies still goodies

An observation after attending five weddings in recent months: the music that gets people of all ages dancing is old – some of it older than me.

Among the bands whose music I danced to in my youth was the Beatles, who had their last concert 40 years ago, when I wasn’t even a teenager.

I mentioned this to some young people because we were dancing to music which I danced to when I was going to school, Bible Class and university dances in the 1970s and some of that music was 10, 20 and even 30 years old then.

“Hasn’t there been any decent music in the last 20 or 30 years?” I asked them.

They said not much when it comes to something with rhythm, melody, and words you can sing to which encourages people to not just get on to the dance floor but to stay there.

    I am fairly sure this was the sort of thing our parents used to say about the rock & roll of our era Ele
    I do tend to agree but I wonder if it is a sign of our age
    rather than what current music is like
