Old Folks Buzz!

It's "Day in the Life" Buzz this week --

And my contibution is that I saw a great movie this weekend. It featured elderly people making the most of every day.

It's called Young At Heart.

It follows the Young At Heart Chorus, a group with an average age of 80 years old. They perform concerts all over the world, but it's not Perry Como and Frank Sinatra songs -- they sing PUNK, ROCK, FUNK, and POP!

It was really beautiful watching them tackle modern music with gusto, and bravely sing songs by Sonic Youth, The Clash, and Coldplay. I think some of their vids are on YouTube, so you should check it out --or better yet see the movie!

It's amazing what you can do when you challenge your fears.

Sounds terrific, Heather, thanks for sharing. And it brings to mind the Ron Howard movie, Cocoon, which I never tire of watching.
