Another Example of How Time Can Mess with Your Head

by | Oct 22, 2019 | Music

Today I would like to take the opportunity to harsh your mellow, but proper, if this album sees rotation in your playlist still.

This album is officially 50 years old.
FIVE. ZERO.
Half a century.

To put that into perspective –
If you went back 50 years prior to it’s release date, you’d arrive at October 22, 1919.
This is seven years after the Titanic sank.
11 years after the Model T became available.
Five years after the first commercial airline flight.
Four years after one could finally make a call across continents.
Television wouldn’t be for sale until 1927, and wouldn’t become common place until the ’50s.
Also in 1927, the first movie featuring sound ‘The Jazz Singer’ would be released.

The top hits of 1919 were –

Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me” by Ted Lewis & His Jazz Band.
“You Ain’t Heard Nothing Yet” by Al Jolson.
“How Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down On The Farm” by Nora Bayes.
“A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody” by John Steel.
“I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” by Ben Selvin’s Novelty Orchestra.

My point is that you are INCREDIBLY old now.
If you were someone that remembered an album from 1919 fondly in 1969, you’d would have seemed THIS archaic.

Whereas *I*, am Metal AF, bro.
