    Dripping with yesterday's sex
    Irrelevant, from the past
    Out of style, out of step
    No wonder it didn't last
    Not part of the modern world
    Don't fit in this new age
    Don't fit the New World Order
    It's of a bygone day

    Nothing Worse Than An Old Song
    Off the radio, off the charts
    Worn out and out of sync
    From the era of our parents
    It ain't cool, it's out of touch
    Lost all meaning, sounds all wrong
    Old fashioned, corny as hell
    Nothing Worse Than An Old Song

    Might be some cheesy doo wop
    Or from the British invasion
    Or from the big band era
    Madonna, Michael Jackson
    Instruments so out of tune
    Vocals just a bit off key
    Lyrics don't make much sense
    Dated technology

    Nothing Worse Than An Old Song
    Off the radio, off the charts

    We don't need quaint memories
    Three minutes of antiquity

    Nothing Worse Than An Old Song

    My daughter would disagree. She's 26 now, but even when she was in high school she gravitated toward music from the 60's and 70's. She once lamented to my wife and I that it wasn't fair that our generation got all the good music.

    60s and 70s?

    My youngest will be 30 in a few weeks. When they were in their mid to late teens, I had several of those time-warp experiences. They had a gigantic collection of music - I was quite accustomed to Rage Against The Machine, The Cat Empire and several other of their favourites.

    Then one Saturday morning, I'm blithely going about the laundry and other routine household chores and I'm transported back to my 50s childhood. Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Washington, Peggy Lee ... and a dozen other blasts from the past were suddenly family favourites. (I blame myself for the Frank Sinatra - I'd told them that if they wanted to hear how a singer demonstrated apparently effortless breath control, Frank S. was amazing.) Even once I'd got used to the idea, I still got a jolt sometimes when they changed from 90s to 50s without batting an eyelash.
