“Getting old ain’t for sissies.”
“You took the words right out of my mouth lol – definitely Bleh
Thought was put into both the lyrics, which had that ability to connect with so many… and then the actual music had good tempo/beats to catch your attention
Did we get old? “
It’s a good question, which is why we are here now with the very same question … my answer to Trisha was ‘Yes and no, we have aged but have we gotten old? No”.
…. and yet as we age and therefore become older, our body isn’t the only thing to transform and evolve, so too do our minds – many of us become cynical, and testy, we can become fixed on our yesterdays and quite often, younger generations tell us – ‘We don’t know what we are talking about because we are older and not moving with the times….”
Trish and l were talking about the music from the 50’s to the 80’s and also how music changed dramatically come the turn of the millenium and how today’s music seemingly doesn’t really do anything, it doesn’t say anything – there ‘s no real connectivity to it and in my honest opinion there will be very few songs in the next twenty years that will be remembered joyfully, lovingly, emotionally from our current years with the same fervor as say, some of these songs below … regarding the ageing process itself ironically!
Time and time again, l have heard this from many people here. In fact only last month Grace of Just Tawkin’ was saying exactly the same about the music – it’s all a bit bleh!
But – it’s not just about the music of today, it’s our culture, the people, communications, the world, fashion, society, news, business, industry, entertainment, education and the film industry and the list goes on and on..
Are we just being old? Older fuddy duddies? Are we being overly conservative with our tastes? Are we not progressing enough, are we not accepting of today’s world … are we in fact – did we in fact just ‘Get Old?’
So tell me, do you consider yourself with your ageing process to be getting older and not so tolerant of today’s world or are you ageing well – but can recognise that today in many ways hasn’t got a thing on the years of yesterday or maybe you think today’s world is simply wonderful [all topical problems aside].
Or are we as older generations of people just not moving on with the world and at the same pace as those younger than ourselves do?
Did we just get old?
