Playing It Old School

I overheard a radio station at the mall today saying that they were "playing it old school", and then they put on Deee-Lite's Groove Is In the Heart.

This song threw me back into remembering the short period of time that I worked at the now long-defunct A&B Records & Tapes, where I played the Deee-Lite album most afternoons that I worked.

Did you catch that? The place I worked at was called A&B RECORDS AND TAPES, as in BEFORE LASERS, as in When I was young, missy, our music was recorded as a series of bumps pressed into plastic that was deciphered by needles. And the music I listened to at that job is now considered OLDIES. Deee-Lite's Lady Miss Kier turned 48 in August.

When my 18-year-old co-worker asked me why I was suddenly so quiet, I turned to her and said, "I am really very old." When she looked confused, I added, "and, when I was a kid, I had to walk uphill to school both ways."

Please pass the Ben-Gay. Also, do you happen to have any Anacin?
