A Time and Place for all Music

There are certain songs that everyone else seems to like, but not me.  Well, let me rephrase that – I like some songs only at certain times.  Don’t get me wrong I am a true music lover but I’m just not too fond of what is commonly referred to as “Oldies”.  But at the right time and place they sound great. 

For example, if I’m in the car listening to the radio and that iconic old 60’s tune comes on:



OH Jimmy Mack

Why don’t you hurry back

Trust me I change the station quick, fast and in a hurry.  I just feel like “been there, done that” when it comes to most of those ol’ skool tunes. I mean how many times must I listen to that same sound year after year and be expected to go out somewhere and party to it.  And if I walked into a night club and heard that song I would turn right around and leave. Face it, I don’t like the “oldies” crowd, I don’t like the line dances they do, I probably won’t like the smell of beer and watered down alcohol either.

On the other hand…If I’m at the supermarket, or the waiting room at the dentist’s office, or if I walk into an elevator and hear:

When are you coming back,

Please Jimmy Mack

Come on and hurry back.

I’ll sway back and forth to the beat, shake my hips, do a little foot work, sing a few words and blurt out loud – Now that’s my Jam! 

Please hurry back

  1. i aint never seen u shake ur hipps

  2. Is that really considered an oldie – still? It’s ANCIENT. They don’t play that on the ol skool playlists here….that must mean Philly or Sirius or Pandora – which ever you choose – has some good music….but not to you.

    • What are some of the oldies they play in ATL? I really don’t know what they play at the oldies spots in Philly these days because I don’t listen. I listen to Jazz on Pandora or live jazz played by my musician friends. I don’t have Sirius.
