"She doesn't rock and roll like she used to/But she probably says the same thing about me." Ha! Love that line. Fun song. I enjoyed it!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Fun lyric.
The chorus melody is similar to Okie from Muskogee but Haggart borrowed that anyway.
The songs a good one but the backing is too quiet.

Bob, I'll be 75 in April so I can really appreciate this song whistle Your "why don't they write songs like that anymore" lyric is exactly what I say!

This is not only a fun song it is a lesson is a hit parade of songs.

Very well done and now one of my favorite songs.

Bob,
I enjoyed your rocking retrospective of the hits... and gradual slide from the dance floor into those armchairs!
Your energetic vocal carries the song( yes, it does sound a little forward of the band).

Robert

Fun song!! Love all those references!! I don't rock and roll like I used to either........I roll out of bed wearily in the morning, and I rock back and forth if I have more than one beer. Damn I miss the old days! Enjoyed this very, very much!!! Take care. Greg

Bob,
Fun tune. A nice reel of recollections. Vocals a bit too on top, but overall good mix. Listens well.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

thanks everyone, comments bout mix taken on board, have remixed before i release on streaming services - my last song earned me £17 over five years so i'm no threat to 'proper' recording artists and i don't expect this one to do any better!

Fun!
When she's 90 you can write a song about how spry you were when you where 70.

Cool song, Well done.

Very fun song, I enjoyed it a lot. Vocal is not sitting in the mix, but it was still enjoyable. Nice work!

Hi Bob,

You transported me back in time with this one!

Rock 'n' roll never really gets tired. Whenever I listen to a song like this, it always lightens and brightens my mood. You did a great job making it and putting it together. I bet your wife was delighted!

I'm a fan!

All the best,
Noel
