    Is there a song you can hear from your high school years that when played now makes you feel old?

    I was flipping through the radio stations looking for something to listen to when I found a string of songs I remember from high school. I listened for a while when the radio station gave it’s call sign reveling it was an oldie network Ok for me high school was 26 years ago (I paused of effect) but it is hard to think that Poison, The Black Crowes or Bad Company are oldies now (are any of them still together?).
    So for me it’s The Black Crows either Hard to Handle or She Talks to Angels

    No thank goodness. They still make me smile - a blend of happiness and nostalgia. What about you?

    Sounds like you are around the same age as I am. When I saw the question the first song that came to mind was 'Sweet Child O' Mine,' but I looked and the album that was on debuted in 1987. I graduated in 1992.

    So you see, I'm now so old the years aren't so chronological in my brain any more.

    The Black Crows are not a band any longer. I believe the brothers involved are not currently so friendly.

    Bad Company? Oh my. I don't think they've been a group since Carter was president. But then again, I'm perfectly capable of being wrong about all of that. Geezer reunion tours being quite the height of fashion these days, you know.

      Central-Hower Class of 1990.

      If remember right Bad Company was releasing albums with new material into the 90's although their best was way back when the peanut farmer ran the White House. Take me down to paradise city

      I'm just hoping rock and metal music make some kind of comeback before I'm too old to enjoy it. But I'm glad of the hair thing being old and out of style. Because I sure ain't got hair no mo.

    Music has never made me feel old. I graduated in 1965 so there's a lot of music that has crossed my well used ear drums and the only thing it has ever done was make me smile. Just about every song I hear, no matter what the era, brings back hoards of memories. They may not all be happy memories but they all have a unique place in my life and I love the fact that the memories are tied to music. The things that make me feel old are felt poodle skirts, saddle oxfords, and crinolines.

      Dark Side of the Moon is one of those albums that should he heard at least once from the LP maybe while watching the Wizard of Oz.

    Poison are still around and tour the nostalgia circuit every couple of years but I don't think they've released any new material in a while.

    The Black Crowes appear to be done, because the two brothers in the band (Chris and Rich Robinson) apparently can't stand each other, so they each have their own separate projects going.

    Not sure about Bad Company.

    As for the main question - I could mention a ton of songs, because every time I look at my CD collection I feel old. Hell, just the fact that I STILL BUY CDs makes me feel old!
