In 1961 this was a Big Hit for a group called: The Capris

Here the Capris perform that big hit from almost 60 years ago singing it to a live audience in September, 2019

Then we move ahead into the 1970s and a guy by the name of Eddie Holman sang these two hits. Eddie Holman is 73 years old and he recently sang these songs before a live audience in November, 2019.

This 79 year old singer sang this very popular song in Orlando, Fla in May, 2019, before a live audience. He wrote it back in 1968 - over 50 years ago.

The name of that song is "Delilah" and the singers name is, Tom Jones.

When I'm not chasing fire trucks or eating ice cream or Big Macs, I like to go check out some music of the days gone by. Music of the 50s, 60s and some 70s. I am impressed with those singers who "Still Got It" and do live shows after some 40, 50 and even 60 years.

So with that said, I hope you don't mind, this is another one of those guys I'm talking about. Next month in March, 2020 he'll be 81 years old and still out there doing live shows. He is from New York City and his first hit song was back over 60 years ago in 1957.

Here are two videos that I hope you enjoy sung by Mr Neil Sedaka as he plays the piano. One in 2017 and the other from 2019.

So back in 1970 I was not that interested in music; concentrated on riding E 248 in my spare time.  My real job was working at First National City Bank in a branch on Avenue J and East 13th Street, Brooklyn.  One day an attractive couple came in to open a checking account.  In completing the forms, I asked the guy who he worked for and he said Jay and the Americans.  Being clueless, I said what is that.  He just said: " a group" so I said: "a group of what?"  And that is how I learned about Jay and the Americans for he was one of the Americans.  I became a big fan of their music and had many of their albums.

Engelbert Humperdink is now 84 years old.

On Thursday afternoon (July 23) at 3 pm here on the East Coast, he plans to do a Free Show for those who might be interested in watching it.

Here is a little bit more about it.

In the above quote, we told you about that July 23 podcast show by now 84 year old Engelbert Humperdink.

Well if you missed it, it was a great show which lasted about 40 minutes or so.
So why not - you and your lady friend grab yourselves a nice glass of wine, sit back and watch the show.

You decide for yourself if he's Still Got It or Not.

Here's another one by 80 year old Tom Jones.

Maybe you may remember this one from 1967, as he sings it once again, 33 years later on September 13, 2000.
