60's Hits for Baby Boomers Getting Old(er) / Back Home
Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one!
It was fun being a baby boomer...
until now. Some of the artists of the 60's
are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers. All
of these original hit songs rose high on the record charts, in fact, most were #1!
Here are a few of the most recognized:
Herman's Hermits --- Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker .
Ringo Starr --- I Get By With a Little Help From Depends.
The Bee Gees --- How Can You Mend a Broken Hip.
Bobby Darin --- Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash.
Roberta Flack --- The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face.
Johnny Nash --- I Can't See Clearly Now.
Paul Simon --- Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver
The Commodores --- Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom.
Marvin Gaye --- Heard It Through the Grape Nuts.
Procol Harem --- A Whiter Shade of Hair.
Leo Sayer --- You Make Me Feel Like Napping.

Helen Reddy --- I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore.
Leslie Gore ---- It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To.
