What's the most popular music among Baby Boomers?

Well that's a silly question! There is no such thing because babyboomers go from 1946-1964! It's possible that there could be parent-child duos that are both babyboomers and we know that parents and children rarely like the same music!

However, I know that my group of "older boomers" really likes the Beatles, Motown, and all those groups that were featured on "American Bandstand." So how can that music be healing for us? Well, there is lots of research in the field of music therapy that confirms that when people are in early stages of Alzheimer's and other dementias, the music of their "Courting years" is often the music that they still remember, can sing along with and cheers them up considerably! I've already told me daughters the music that I want to hear if, God forbid, that happens to me.

Here's one of my favorites from my "courting years." Bill Boone, are you listening?

Woman with trumpet lips! Healing? I don't know!

A friend sent me this video and it is soooo amazing when it starts, I'm just wondering if it's real or if it's been altered? Any trumpet players out there know if this is really possible? If it is, I think it is truly amazing! What do you think?

Do you remember Petula Clark?

In 1962 I was 14 years old and totally into American Bandstand, boyfriends, and listening to my favorite music on the radio at night. I loved Petula Clark and this song in particular. It made a lot of sense to me because I always lived in towns that had a vibrant downtown (or so it seemed to me) and that's where we'd go to see the latest movies on Saturday afternoon or evenings.

Today, when I hear these songs, usually thanks to YouTube, it brings back tons of happy, nostalgic memories. Lots of fun with no calories ingested or money spent! Hard to beat isn't it?

Musical Humor for Babyboomers

Do you love music? Do you love the movies? Then you're going to love this little tidbit of musical humor! At least I did!

Excited about his new project concept, a movie producer calls together several big stars to kick some ideas around. The project, an action docu-drama about famous composers features Stallone, Van Damme and Schwartzenegger in leading roles. The producers really want the box office 'oomph' of these three, and they are prepared to allow them to select which famous composers they will portray. "Well," starts Stallone, "I've always admired Mozart. I would love to play him." "Chopin has always been my favorite," says Van Damme. "I'll play him." Things are going well; the producers are pleased. "Sounds splendid. And who do you want to be, Arnold?" "I'll be Bach."

Come on, you know laughter is healing too!
