A little bit old fashioned

Currently dancing along to Putting on the Ritz by Fred Astaire. Got Cab Calloway and The Andrews Sisters queued up.

Anyone else a fan of the more old fashioned stuff? I cannot get enough of it. Unfortunately DH doesn't share my love for it.

PS. I'm 28.

mememememememememe! (and I'm 42 so have more of an excuse than you do) I love Ella Fitzgerald, all of the 'Rat Pack' (go and see the stage show if you can - you will love it!), Nat King Cole etc etc. My CD rack is full of golden oldies. You go girl!

A bit different but when I was 12/13 I discovered music and got into Les Zeppelin and Deep Purple.
My mum was confused . She kept saying this is old stuff!!!

All my mates were into Ska and I had my own musical world seeking out Neil Young albums that no one wanted anymore!!

DD has posters of John Coltrane and Miles Davis on her bedroom wall. Totally my fault.

I love Neil Young and Carol King and listen to lots of old jazz standards.

Am a Kurt Weill head. The LP of his sung by Ute Lemper is a mainstay of mine.

As is the double LP of Ella Fitzgerald singing Cole Porter songs.

Once had trouble convincing a teenager that Kanye West's Diamonds Are Forever sample isactually a bit 'old'. grin

Empusa - I also have an LP of Fred Astaire singing all of the great old film/show songs. Night and Day ( I think a Cole Porter one) is poetically sublime.
