My Song is an Oldie???
When does a song become an oldie?

Wickipedia says "Oldies is a radio format that concentrates on music from a period of about 25 to 55 years before the present day.
In the 1980s and 1990s, "oldies" meant the 15 years from the birth of rock n roll to the beginning of the singer-songwriter era of the early 1970s, or about 1955 to 1972, although this varied and some stations chose 1950–1969.[citation needed] After 2000, 1970s music was increasingly included,[1] and early 1980s music is beginning to also be called "oldies", though the term "classic hits" is used to distinguish the "new" oldies (theGeneration X oldies) from the "old" oldies (the Baby Boomer oldies).[2]"
Personally, in my mind, "oldies" are songs from the generation before my own LOL. But the older I get, the more the songs I remember are not considered modern music, or whatever the new music is called. Don't get me wrong, I love much of the new music out there. But there's something about the music that you loved during the time you were becoming an adult. It lives in you for the rest of your life.
Hubby and I met in the 1975. Our song - the song we loved to sing together while we were dating - was Captain and Tennille's Love Will Keep Us Together. See, I was a romantic even then. (And if you watched that video - click on the song title - and didn't live in the 70s, yes that was how we dressed and wore our hair and it was very cool!)
And speaking of oldies, I'm kicking around the idea of using song titles for the book titles of my Silver Fox romances. It's been fun listening to more of the songs I grew up with as I searched for the perfect titles for each story.
What songs did you grow up with - the ones you loved, and still love. Are they considered oldies now?
