Forget Sinatra! The feisty Young at Heart chorus prefers fast, loud songs

Today's American Story with Bob Dotson comes from Northampton, Mass., home to a group of the most unlikely movie stars.

“Eyeeeeee feel Good!” Dora Morrow shouts into a microphone, then growls her best James Brown. "Like I knew that I would …”

Oh my, they put a whole new spin on "I Want To Be Sedated" didn't they? Some of those songs become refreshingly honest when you think about them applying to seniors... and when they are sung by people who have wavering voices. A lot of sincerity in their voices, and it's a touching reminder that these singers have seen a bit of life.

Well, since some restaurants consider my wife and I senior citizens at our age (59/60) and we can order off of the Senior Menu, we will tell you how we "rock out": play poker, have a shot or two of Jose' Cuervo (or Butter Baby) and a few Bud Lights plus watch/listen to DVD concerts of Chicago, BTO, Queen or Deep Purple. Oh we can have so much fun on a Friday or Saturday night!!!!!!!!
