Is this a thread for the over-35's and ONLY the over 35's?? Razzer

Not trying to smart, or sassy, or whatever the word is in the UK ("to have cheek", is perhaps the verb? LOL)...

It's just that I'd like to specifiy the timeline of "ancient". Is this pre-Split Enz, and if so, by how much?

Pardon me if I'm being picky, but I was born in 1972, and as such, am feeling a tad "middle-of the-road" to participate in this here thread, y'knowwhataImean?

Cheers.

don't worry kia, no age limit, it's open to all music fans. i mean i was probably only about 5 when the small faces released the song i was talking about. i was just thinking if anyone had any old records in their collections or had heard an oldie on the radio that still sounded vibrant and fresh. i suppose we can define an 'oldie' song as anything before the punk era, mid 70's backwards if you like....

and elton, yeah his early 70's stuff is fantastic. i revisited a lot of those albums last year when they were re-released and theres a plethora of great tunes on them.
10 ancient songs that still sound great to me (I'm younger than all of them...)

1. Black Sabbath "Paranoid"
2. ? and the Mysterians "96 Tears"
3. Big Boppper "Chantilly Lace"
4. Badfinger "Day After Day"
5. Elvis Presley "Edge Of Reality"
6. Buddy Holly and the Crickets "I'm Gonna Love You Too"
7. ZZ Top "La Grange"
8. Rolling Stones "Little Red Rooster"
9. Tee Set "Ma Belle Ami"
10. The Nice "America"
10a. Fleetwood Mac "Oh Well"
10b. Del Shannon "Runaway"
10c. Lovin' Spoonful "Summer In The City"
10d. Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames "Yeh Yeh"
10e. The Animals "House Of The Rising Sun"

Paul.
Tiny Dancer. Wow, there's a song! Possibly the most wonderous love song ever written. I remember playing it and playing it and playing it and playing it over and over when I started Uni. Drove my housemates mad. "Count the headlights on the highway".

Especially as we're talking 1989, here!

But then I always have been a bit "after the event"! Big Grin

I'm only 34 - I just want to make that clear.... Wink Wink Wink Razzer
Here's a few more that I like:

"Fooled Around and Fell in Love" Elvin Bishop
"Boys Are Back In Town" Thin Lizzy
"Some Kind of Wonderful" Grand Funk
"Time" The Alan Parson's Project
"Tonight's The Night" Rod Stewart
Some albums:
I still think that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon album is fantastic.
I love the Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers
And Jackson Brown Running on Empty, that is the best album to crank up in the car on a long car trip.
OMG, Baker Street! That's one of those songs that i completely forget about, but when i hear it on the radio it instantly transports me back to a pivotal summer in my young life...It's one of those songs that i don't particularly like, but has the ability, like a certain smell, to bring you back to something you had forgotten.

Oh Wow.
I totally second the choice of "Baker Street" Geddy! One of my all time favorites.
"Right Down The Line" by Gerry Rafferty too, what a fantastic love song.

Another song with a more mellow groove that I love is "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs.

Too bad I already have most of my CD's packed up. I want to dig some of those old ones out now!

that is a fantastic love song. i bought the best of gerry rafferty a few weeks ago and i haven't listened to it properly yet as i keep returning to that song.

also i saw/heard mr blue sky by e.l.o. being used in the trailer for eternal sunshine of the spotless mind and it sounded as good as ever. (i hear the movie's pretty darn good too, can't wait to see it)
Early David Bowie - still sounds amazing to me whenever I hear it on the radio. "Rebel Rebel", "Fame", "Young Americans". "Ashes to Ashes" was a little later but amazing as well.

OOOH OOOH - Elvis Costello! An amazing songwriter! Never gets old. Even though "Oliver's Army" is somewhat dated in it's references, it still has some of the most biting lyrics I've ever heard.

ditto that oooh oooh. don't get me started on old elvis. was listening to pump it up in the car the other day and i nearly had myself a mischief.
Jenn, you mentioned "Sticky Fingers" which is such a great Stones album. You must make the best mixed tapes, Lady! I always enjoy reading about your eclectic tastes. Smiler
Heard "Sundown" by Gordon Lightfoot in a store a couple of days ago...that's a song that deserves to be covered.
Agree wholeheartedly about Elvis Costello.All of it. Some Pink Floyd and Doors still sounds great but some of it, kinda ridiculous (IMHO).
when i was in new york two weeks ago i visited johns imagine memorial at strawberry fields in central park. it's a nice peaceful setting and there were folk sitting and standing around paying their respect. the memorial's a bit weather beaten and cracked at the moment but i believe they're going to fix that.

as i was sitting there three girls in their mid-teens came by, yakking away and giggling as they do. they stopped at the memorial, had a look, asked themselves a few questions then all of a sudden they burst into the song and sang it word for word.

that was a nice morning.

Why thank you! I have to admit, I am known for my mixed tapes, at least by some of my friends. One of my really good friends broke up with her boyfriend and wanted to have a "Tainted Love" party and she had me make mixed tapes. By the time of her party, she was back with her boyfriend, but the tapes were still used. All the women there really liked the tapes anyways. Some of my mixed tapes are really bizarre though, even I have to admit to that Well, those I make for my ears only though...

I just heard "Sister Golden Hair" by America this morning, never get sick of that song...Rain00, I love "She's Gone" by Hall and Oates, I love when they play the entire version too, really sublime. My favorite Zep song is "Over the Hills and Far Away", Just heard it a couple of days ago...ahhh.....
