I like the oldies station in Chicago. The songs are mostly from the beginning of rock 'n roll, say the 1950s and 1960s. The lyrics are pretty G-rated so I don't have to worry about the girls listening and those songs are singable. Pick any of the "girl group" songs and you can sing the words and do silly dances all you want. The Motown songs are great for that too.
When we were children, my parents always had the radio on. Our house was filled with music all the time. Many of the oldies bring back happy memories of my childhood. The current song has me reconsidering what I consider an oldies song.
Right now the oldies station is playing an Eddie Money song. My first thought was, "That is not an oldies song. I used to dance to that song in college."
Someone at the oldies station is definitely confused. Eddie Money is not an oldies artist. If he is, that means I'm old. While I feel old some days -- like when I am up all night with a sick child -- I am definitely not old. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
