Mick Jagger can finally retire.
Oh, I don’t mean anything about his fabulous wealth, or his knighthood. I mean he’s 65 this year. Paul McCartney is a year older still, and Keith Richards will hit the big 6-5 next month (December 18) .
So much for “Never trust anyone over 30”.
I’ve decided, then, as a tribute to all the musicians I grew up with (back when 680 CFTR had DJs) , to share some song titles and band names that might suit our well-over-30 lifestyles. Most of them might remind you of hits from 1975 or thereabouts.
Since not a single agent has called to sign me onto their country music label, I’m not going to waste my energies writing lyrics; best leave that in the hands of the pros. Here are my tribute pieces.
- You’re So Vane by Carly Simon and the Rheumarhythms
- Bad Blood by Neil Sedaka and the Cholesterettes
- When I Was 64 by Paul McCartney
- You’re in My Heart by Rod Stewart and the Pacemakers
- Low Rider by Scooter War
- It’s Hip to be Squaredancing by Huey Lewis and the Olds
- Sister Bluerinse Hair by America
- The Land Six Feet Under by Men Who Used to Work
- Splenda Brown Sugar by Trying to Lose a few Stones
- Get Up Today by KC and the Sunshine Band
Keep on truckin’, everybody!
