OK, all you Seniors. We've spent a few days posting about oldies
but goodies. The music of the 50's, 60's and 70's. This was music's best time. I think we should start a thread where we can post all the oldies we remember. Keep it going like 'the thread that never dies'.

Post the song name and a YouTube link. We can have a great sing-along. Those were the days, my friend!
Anyone agree? It would be s fun diversion from the news of the day.

8. The Kinks -- Lola!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixqbc7X2NQY

I have such fond memories of this song -- a handsome young gay grad student from Brooklyn tried to teach me to dance The Hustle to this song.

Never did learn to dance, but thinking of his earnest efforts always makes me smile.

10. any self-respecting list of "oldies" MUST include this one
includes one of my favorite guitarists - Clarence White

(Have feeling it will be fondly remembered by many here.)
