It Pains Me to Say...

I remember most of the songs from the fifties and sixties. Remember them very well, as a matter of cold, stark fact. And I have the aches and pains to prove it.

If you have an hour and twenty minutes take a stroll through the first five seconds of every #1 hit song from 1955 to 1992. I haven't got to the 1980s and 90s yet, but I'll bet I won't recognize very many of them. Sigh.

h/t Barce Pundit, where I was expecting to find some up close and more personal perspectives on what's happening just across that other pond.

Thanks. I'll have to listen to them when my bones aren't aching. ;)
