    I Must Be Getting Old.

    Paul McCartney just turned 70. But what really makes me feel old is I can't stand most of what passes for popular music now. I don't know and don't care about who's popular now. I want to go back to the music of my teen years.

     I really have no idea why while I'm listening to this song many memories of my childhood and a past time kept coming to my mind, different memories and glimpses of the past that do not relate to each other and I didn't even know that they remained and existed in my mind in...

    I Love 60s Music

    Best decade for music in most genres. 90% of the music I dig is from this era. Today's music would be nothing without the inspiration of the sixties.
