30 Year Old Songs

Over at JayG’s site Marooned, I learned that Michael Jackson’s Thriller is 30 years old.  JayG was amazed that his 9 year old daughter knew all of the words to a 30 year old song and stated that he wouldn’t have known the words to a 30 year old song when he was 9 (in 1980).

I used my Google-Fu to find out that Gene Autry’s Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer came out in 1950.  I’m sure JayG’s little girl knows that song even better than Thriller.

So I decided to check on what songs were 30 years old when I was 9 (1973) – yes, I am older than JayG.

Hits of 1943:

As Time Goes By by Rudy Vallee

Paper Doll by the Mills Brothers

That Old Black Magic by Glenn Miller

Stormy Weather by Lena Horne
