So I gotta acknowledge, the song is kinda old...



I'm sorry. I'm not gonna let this one go. Big Grin

If 18 years is enough to make the song "old" ... is it enough to make the teenager "old"?


Hmmm... Interesting point. I guess it's a matter of perspective. Are a pair of shoes from 1990 old?

The other day, I happened to be flipping thru radio stations. One of the hip-hop/r&b stations introduced Promise, by Ciara, as a "back in the day joint." I damn near had to pull over. The song came out in like 2005.

When I was 18, "Tears of a Clown," which came out around the time I was born, was ANCIENT!


"Tears of a Clown" is neither ancient nor old. It is a classic.[/QUOTE]

You seem to see these terms as mutually exclusive. Can't it be both? In fact, doesn't it HAVE to be old in order to be classic? If it hasn't stood the test of time, how can it be a classic? My absolute favorite songs of today, no matter how great I think they are, can't be considered classics yet, right?
