Reprise Sunday – The Golden Oldies…..Kinda

“Sniff….brings back memories that just touches my heart.”

Sundays I like to go back and dredge up a blog you may have missed, and, also because it’s too freakin’ hot to write. So, from July 2010, a MisfitWisdom oldie but goodie, (literally) yet still very timely.



Being a golden oldie myself, having played Beatles records on the radio when they were first released, I think it’s time to re visit some of those gems and adapt them to people, places, things and society in general.

Here’s my take on how I’d rename some of those oldies.

Ok guys….and ya wanna vote for Trump why?

Well, there ya have it.  I’m sure many of you can come up with your own version of twists on songs to fit today’s uptight society.

My favorite is the one song at the very beginning of today’s blog recorded many eons ago by two guys in Massachusetts.

I think, however, the title says it all.  At some point we “ALL” are as the song title indicates.

Everybody has one.
