    Default Song themes that are obsolete, or out of reference.

    I was listening to Simon and Garfunkel's "Kodachrome" on the radio today and thought that there must be a bunch of songs that today's kids wouldn't understand.

    You know like the way pictures are all digital today. "What is Kodachrome Dad?"

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    lol

    Like Croce's Operator, Dr. Hook with Sylvia's Mother. "And the operator says forty cents more for the next three minutes." Does that happen anymore? Are there anymore phone booths? If not, where does Superman change? lol

    That's wild, I heard "Operator" a week or so ago and was thinking along those lines - "wonder if the kids understand this?" Pretty much any mention of payphones, or using a dime to make a call, in any song has to be over their heads!

    Not a song, but reading the title of this topic, I had to think of this pic:



    The subtitle reads: "Our children will never get the connection!!!"

    Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" could use a part 2, since it has been almost 25 years since that song came out.

    "leaning up against the record machine"... Carrie Underwood in "Cowboy Casanova" also used by DLR....and Oasis and Joan Jett I think


    "record machine"...but I wonder what kids think that is when they hear it?

    Maybe with Guitar Hero, they figured it out or were explained the term.
    Which reminds me: Record machine = juke box. Juke Box Hero by Foreigner.
