An EXTREMELY Fond Look Back at the 50s, 60s and 70s
Long live the dream decades of carefree happiness!
Reminisce those fabulous days at YouRememberThat
"Those Funny Familiar Forgotten Feelings"
Someone said: "Genius is the ability to recapture childhood at will." Though much of the fifties, sixties and seventies may SEEM to have slipped into the cracks of oblivion, they have not! Those decades continue to live on and will always remain etched in our minds. And, now that we go into the next century, the more so. We lived through those decades one day at a time. Now relive it all at once in your mind, again and again. All it takes are a few mouse-clicks. So, "C'mon get happy"...have fun listening. And, think about this - MUSIC IS THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIVES!
Who says you can't go back?!! Dare to dream! Don't let anyone tell you that they were not the good old days. You know they certainly were!!
And to drive home the point, some quotations
Memories press between the
pages of my mind
Memories sweeten through the ages just like wine
Memories - Elvis, 1969
We have our dreams to comfort
us, soft and warm within our memories.
We all have our good old days tucked away inside our hearts,
And we return to them in daydreams like a cat to his favorite armchair.
Freedom is a happy thought.
We'll Saturday spend til
the end of the day
Just I and my friend, we'll travel for miles in our Saturday smiles
And then we'll move on, but we will remember long after Saturday's gone.
Come Saturday Morning - The Sandpipers, 1970, from the 1969 movie, "Sterile Cuckoo"
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth in the season of plenty.
If I had my life to live over, I wouldn't have time - Roger Miller
When we were young, cribs were beds and across the street was a million miles away. But now we are tall and Christmas trees are small.
