Those were the days!

April 6, 2010

“Boy, the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the Hit Parade. Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days!

Didn’t need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight ,Gee, our old LaSalle ran great. Those were the days!

And you knew where you were then! Girls were girls and men were men. Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again. People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent. Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days!

Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win. Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin.

Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song. I don’t know just what went wrong! Those Were the Days!”

ow, I took an acting course this year, and we’re gonna have a little reunion later. I want to sing this song (the intro from All in the Family) so I need to find a girl to sing with me. I’ll ask Val or Rachel.

I think I’ll talk a little about nostalgia. Was life really better “back in the day?”

Well, I didn’t live back then, so I couldn’t tell you. But what I do know is that people today seem to have a certain few qualities missing to them. Most people I know seem to be missing some base elements. Courtesy, courage, and honor. I hope it’s just a product of our age.
People go on and go behind people’s backs, and are not ready to answer the bell when called upon. That’s base. That’s low class. That’s rewarded today.
Being conniving and snidely are never the right choices. Put your heart on your sleeve and don’t be afraid to show the world what you have.
