I feel old

I've just had to explain to Jodie who The Beatles were so she could get the gag in the cartoon she's watching.

and The Beatles were actually before your time.

technically "your time", musically, is supposed to be your teens and twenties. yes, you might remember music from your childhood, but that's "before your time".

they used to play our local discos before they became really big. We preferred "Bilbo Baggins" though. The BCR were a bunch of really creepy guys. Even as teenagers.

Hmmm... I was 12 in 1970, so i guess they're just "before my time" too. I guess that makes some sort of sense. "Imagine" was the first LP my (17 months younger, but discovered "teenage" things sooner) sister bought...

On that criteria then they're only just in your time then. You are about the same age as Harry aren't you...

actually I would have said that they were "just before" my time. they certainly weren't a major influence on the charts when I started buying records. I knew of them, but only when my Dad played their records.

Any group your Dad listens to is automatically "before your time"!!!!

My Dad listened to Deanna Durbin, or as he sometimes called her Dena Dustbin.

considering that John Lennon left the group in 1969 - so the band broke up then - and I wasn't buying singles or LPs till I was about 14 - back then one's music buying career tended to start later. Kids of Jodie's age didn't know about the charts and actual pop music - we got Ed "Stewpot" Stewart playing stuff like "Three Wheels On My Wagon" and "The Runaway Train", or even "The Laughing Policeman".

Thats one thing that can definately stay in the past. These days they go straight to Radio 1.

So our daughter could be a High Court judge when she grows up?

You can hope. Then she can afford to keep us in our old age.

"A band that broke up forty years ago." ?

Hey, next year will be the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles name.

Does it get you down, 'cause it's decades past?
Strawberry Fields...
A time now unreal
Our children have not heard about
The Sixties, the Beatles, not ever.
