    Default Season 256 - At Seventeen



    What music were you listening to when you were seventeen? Has it stayed with you? Or are you embarrassed or amused by it?

    What I want to hear this week are the songs that you were listening to when you were seventeen. It might be songs that were around at that time, or maybe you were digging back into things that had been out for years.

    OR

    Write an original song about the things you were doing at seventeen. (Keep it clean...)

    A maximum of three videos please, newly recorded for this season.

    Ukulele prominent, but multi-tracking is OK if you want to do it.

    Season starts 00:01 Sunday 8th Hawaii time, ends 24:00 Sunday 15th.

    There may be a prize.

    The playlist is here.

    P.S. I do realise that some people may be sensitive about giving such obvious clues about their age. So my advice is tell a big fat lie. If you are the wrong side of forty but insist that at seventeen you were listening to nothing but One Direction, we will believe you.
    Soprano - KoAloha KSM-00, Maccaferri Islander
    Concert - Barron River Mahogany, Barron River Cypress, MyaMoe Koa, Johnny Marvin "Tenor"
    Sopranino - Rob Collins Cigar Box
    ...all with Worth strings
    ...and a few chords

    Very imaginative theme! When I was 17, I was loading the wax cylinders onto the phonograph to play some Jolson!

    Most of the stuff I listened to ended with " ... and continuo."

    This is a fantastic theme, Steve. Look forward to the entries!

    A deliciously clever and diabolical theme Steve. I have a general awareness of the types of music I was listening to in 1971-1972 but How Hip was I back then? An important issue to any 17 year old! The time lag factor comes into play for me. Iam a little too young to be and old hippy but I Remember "Woodstock" the movie and the impact that music had on me. But was I cutting edge or a year behind the times back then? This should be a fun season.

    Exactly my era too Tommy. I was in a group for a short while in 1972. High school friend and a couple of older guys just out of school. We played some CCR I recall. I think the Beatles You Say it's Your Birthday was one we did too.

    Interesting that a lot of 255 will be coming back up this week for me. I was in the womb!

    I am certainly not embarrassed by any music I liked then as I still like it now.
    I did almost throw out all my Cat Stevens records when he spoke carelessly about how it might be OK to put creative people to death for annoying his religion....

    17? Not 16, not 18, not 21 but 17. Hmmmmmmmm, it makes me wonder.

    Should be a fantastic SOTU, Steve! As long as the power stays on, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow here in the Eastern U.S.! We'll get a lot of strummin' done.

    Well I've got a song that fits that I've been meaning to do for a while. Then again, I might get distracted. I found a song that I already knew how to play for season 255, but it was either practice and record it or go snorkeling in this beautiful weather.... Snorkeling won! I've got great footage of lots of tiny fish, but no John Lennon recording.
