Hopelessly corny


I was channel surfing on the boob tube and came accross a TV special on the local public station. It was on folk music hosted by the Smothers Brothers. I watched it for a while, it wasn't too bad. Suddenly I had a flashback to the early 70's when I was a young teenager. I used to watch Lawrence Welk in my grandmother's room on Sunday nights. She loved it, while us kids would snicker behind her back and think the show was hopelessly corny. Well, as I'm watching this folk music special, seeing all the greyhairs singing along with the music, it struck me that I'm not much younger than those people (47 years young). Am I becoming my grandparents? Is the music I like hopelessly corny and now played in elevators? BTW, I posted this subject in AA also--curious to see the difference in responses.

I take comfort in knowing that even the hippest of the Rap Hip Hop and Grunge of today will be the Corny Golden Oldies of tomorrow. It's payback for the way you treat your elders.
I think that when it comes to music, you tend to love what you grew up with or enjoyed while still relatively young. But if that's true, I'm glad I won't be around to see a bunch of old geezers groovin' to some raunchy rap or hip-hop...
This must be the my next Step The Twilight  Zone of Music .

As long as you're not taking the Geritol yet (LW show sponsor) You are just coming to age where if you like something it's good! Sure hipsters may be laughing at you now. I also recall LW show...a one and a two...... Kenny G' said the Soprano Sax on LW show impressed him so, that he told his Mom he wanted to play one. Oh well... 😄
LW and Kenny G didn't make 60 G'S FOR ten Bars of Rap Music!!!!  and neither of them could dance or FLY in LEAR JETS that cost 70 MILLION a pop, Plus poor Kenny G was stealing other's music before he got sued,
so while you OLD GEEZERS are trying to dance in your DEPENDS. we young ones WILL BE BOBBING ARE HEAD'S TO SOME FAT BEATS ON A TECHNICS SL 1200 TABLE AND NOT ON A CORNY ACCORDION.
When I hear "Head Like a Hole" by NIN in my next elevator ride, I’ll know it’s time to pack in all in.
