I like that idea!

Might suggest it to a local coffee shop.

I grew up in the 50's and 60's and played sax in a rock band , so my music tastes tend to lean toward Rock and Roll. But I have gotten burned out on 50's rock and now lean more toward music from AC/DC, Aerosmith, Joan Jett, etc. YouTube is my go-to source for a lot of stuff, especially music.

One musician I really liked was Levon Helm, who passed recently, and I love this tribute that was done for him of his signature song, " The Weight". If you are a child of the 60's, crank up the speakers and enjoy !

Not ouch really. Lot of good memories related to that phase of life, even DH had connections then and knows my reaction. I ended up with the right person and still love singing along! I guess I'm fortunate. Most songs bring back good memories, not bad ones.

Don, that is really good. Reminded me of a similar tribute from the Rockwiz band. Rockwiz is a strange music based quiz show in Australia that has muscians and audience members answering music trivia questions but also has live performances. Their cover is

If you like ac/dc this one from the show may bring a smile

Something is wrong with me. When I dropped out of the current music scene instead of reverting to the music of my high school and college years which would be what most people refer to as classic rock, I listened to music older than that and then also picked up country music. I buy music from iTunes and either listen to it when I'm at the computer or play a CD I burned from my playlists for the car.

I was 4 when this song came out but it's one of my faves:

I like all Gene Pitney, I just picked the video for this one because it's a performance rather than stills:

I prefer this older version of Mockingbird than the Taylor/Simon version:

And, I'll add a favorite country song:

Laura, loved the original Mocking Bird! Also like When you say nothing at all, but Ronan Keating's version had become a favorite first.
Stumbled over 2 tonight:
Elvis ( though he does not appear till 2 minutes in!)

and Ray Charles

I was fortunate in that my retiree program offered a History of Rock and Roll class over a number of semesters. We started in the 50s and ended in the 1970s and the instructor who has been a member of a local band since his high school days played a whole bunch of old music off of YouTube for us and even brought to class a number of old instruments and amplifiers used by the then old bands. We even had a game where he played a song off the internet and we had to guess the artist. I think there was only one song where everyone in class knew the song but no one could remember the artist and that was the song, "Reach Out of The Darkness" by Friend and Lover. I bought "At Last" by Etta James after one of those classes.
