I see that golden oldies for my generation has an entirely different meaning than yours. I like Cole Porter or Irving Berlin and the 1920's to 1960 's songs. I just realized that some of the shoes I own are older than the Who's music.59 here.
I take it that the children's songs and old folk tunes that are usually taught to young children learning to play the piano (e.g., "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star") don't count?
One of the first popular hits that I tried to learn was "Roundabout" by Yes. I also had a couple of songbooks of The Who's music, and tried to learn to play "Overture" and "Underture" from Tommy.
Oddly enough, I was playing something completely different and a friend thought of Telstar; I couldn't remember a lick --- hey that was the early 60s that I last accompanied it on bass when; you needed a guy with a big twangy guitar with a flush handle to play it. I had to google it on youtube in order to figure it out on a keyboard. I seem to recall a rumor that they produced some effects by miking a flush toilet.Telstar.
Its different everytime I play it .............. one day I will get it right.
My dad bought my mom a record player that plugged into the radio as an xmas present. It came with a couple of complementary discs: one was the Chipmunks on one side and the David Rose Orchestra "That's Almost Good!" on the other side. I guess my birthday tune would be "Heartaches" --- had to look it up but now I remember it (yeesh!).Some people believe that your personality can be explained by which song was Number One on the day you were born. (Okay, I might have made that up-- but it sounds like it could be true.)
On the day I was born, the Number One song in the USA was "The Chipmunk Song," which completely proves the accuracy of this theory.
