A lot of the music I listen to is older than I am (32).

Well, I thought of Over The Rainbow from The Wizard Of Oz and Cab Calloway's Minnie The Moocher of Betty Boop fame, but I haven't had time to access the videos yet. Don't touch that dial!<br><br>
There's also a beautiful love song called "I'll Be Seeing You" that's been recorded many times over the decades, but was written in 1938.

Oh come on...<br><br>
Most people on VB barley remember the 90's (thus the lack of response to this thread) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Good music is good music, regardless of when it was written and first performed.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Once I built a railroad,<br>
I made it run<br>
I made it run against time<br>
Once I built a railroad, and<br>
now it's done<br>
Buddy, can you spare a dime?<br><br>
Once I built a tower way up to<br>
the sun<br>
Of bricks and morter and lime<br>
Once I built a tower, and now<br>
it's done<br>
Buddy can you spare a dime?<br><br>
Once in khaki suits, gee we<br>
looked swell<br>
Full of that Yankee-Doodlee-Dum<br><br>
A half-a-million boots went<br>
slogging through hell<br>
And I was the kid with the drum<br><br>
Say don't you remember, you<br>
called me Al<br>
It was Al all the time<br>
Say don't you remember, I was<br>
your pal<br>
Buddy, can you spare a dime?<br><br>

I first heard this sung by Judy Collins on her "Judith" album. It's so sad...because it's still timely.

Technical note: the film, Casablanca, was released in 1942, making As Time Goes By a worldwide hit, but the song was composed in 1931.<br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWa6-x0iWRw&feature=player_detailpage</a>

Capstan, this was my intro music at our wedding (well, the 50's Cinemascope version). I can still recall the excitement of hearing the fanfare at the beginning of movies when I was a kid. I love when they use it now...it seems a bit hit and miss.<br><br>
Despite our collective relatively young age, I'm sure VBers can appreciate 30s music. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
One of my favorites (though a modern version):<br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih425d5EoWQ&feature=results_video&playnext =1&list=PLDF457C7554C627F1</a><br>
