    One of my VERY favorite oldies: Unchained Melody (Righteous Brothers)

    Wonderful music never goes out of style, does it? What are your favorite oldies?

    Hoping to start a thread where we can go listen to our favorite golden oldies on the internet. :)

    This sounds like a lot of fun, LadyEagle, but Pete's right.

    I was skimming the TV channels yesterday when I saw VH1C was showing "classics vs. current" music. I turned it on to see Pearl Jam and I said to myself, "Yuck, that's the current stuff I don't like."

    But NO! Pearl Jam was the classic! :confused:

    Would you set some guidelines so that we don't go wandering all over the past century or just talk about last week?

    White Room - Cream

    :laugh: Anyone else apart from me think I'm keeping the letter of "Okay, how about 1940s, 1950s, 1960s" but maybe not the spirit? :eek: :D
