Music you listened to when you were 13 that you've sought out on Youtube and is surely symptomatic of encroaching dementia.

Didn't get into rock until later in life. Classical, jazz, and flamenco when I were a sprout.

Hmm, must be geoblocked in the UK. It plays OK in the US.  Maybe the "official" version will work in the UK.

Given that most people struggle with legible handwriting already, the added complexity of cursive is an unnecessary burden. It is more practical and efficient to stick to standard print writing.

This thread has brought back memories of one of the roots of my love of classical music. I was exactly 13 when I heard Bobby Darin sing Mack the Knife on the radio.


My mother, cultured lady that she was, told me that it was an adaptation of the original Mackie Messer song composed by Kurt Weill for his  Dreigroschenoper. At one of the local record stores they had an LP of the opera with Lotte Lenya singing it.


That was one of the things that set me off exploring the connections in music. I am so grateful that I learned at an early age that art is a succession of influences that are fun to explore.

It's a shame Kevin Spacey turned out to be a bit of monster, Beyond The Sea (movie) was good I thought.


When you get your time machine sorted and are going back to see Lotte perform, can I hitch a ride?

Of course, my time machine can accommodate many passengers. I'm pretty sure you know that you can also see her brilliantly playing Rosa Klebb with the useful shoe in From Russia with Love.

I'm pretty sure I was 14 rather than 13, but this is the first such song that comes to mind;
