My teenage years were in the Swinging Sixties in England.
How very cool! You had the Beatles there!

Go 60's--we're leading the pack now!

I love the 60's music and video. Graduated in '66, an early flower child, but didn't make it to Woodstock.

I was a teenager in the Rock and Roll era of Bill Haley and the Comets, Buddy Holly, etc., and when Elvis was the king. I graduated HS in 1958. I was never a part of the hippy drug culture of the 60's.

Teenage years

I think I had the best of both worlds, as I was a teenager in the late 60's early 70's. Everything was going on in every genre. It has been nothing like it sense!

Based on the poll results, most people here are in their late 40's or early 50's.

There are quite a few of us in our 60's, too.:D

Can I vote twice? I'm equally split. I guess it doesn't matter. I'm not in the "big" groups anyways.

Loved the 60's

I was a teenager from 1961 to 1967, graduating from High School in 1966. My wife and I have been weeks timeshare owners since 1977.

Would "How long have you been in timeshare?" be an interesting topic for another thread?

I think that would be very interesting. I'll start one in the Lounge.

Ditto

I was a teenager in the 80s - era of bad fashion, bad hairstyles, and bad music, and I partook in all three.

I am genuinely sorry to have missed the 60s.
:D Don't forget the rise of bad food as well! At least in Indiana, that is when the rise of chain "sit down" restaurants like Chi-Chis and Cheddars... came into being, make even the food worse!

I only had two years in the 50's, but I loved being in on the beginning of RnR. I also loved "Your Hit Parade.":) There are chunks of the 60's that I don't remember very clearly, but I'm pretty sure I enjoyed them :D

Hi All,
I was born in '43. so the 50's were my teenage years but I forgot to stop. While I worked hard I partied harder until I got married at 35. Well there were a few more parties but not as hardy as before. Like tonight there is a party, something about a 30 year anniversary or something I forget.:eek: Things you learn, You know the party is over? When they call out several truck loads of the Mexican Army to ask you kindly to leave.:wave: I used to like to ride motorcycles and we got a little rowdy at times.:cheer: How do you know your designated driver isn't qualified? When the tail gate of the pick up breaks and several people fall to the pavement, some kind soul saved me by grabbing my foot and dragging me behind the PU for a block before they could make the driver understand something was wrong. A few minor injuries. "Tiny", his biker handle, was in the bed just behind the driver and suggested to the driver that they change places by grabbing him by the neck and pulling the driver through the open window and dropping him on the street.:cool: Well that's all of the "G" rated stuff but we had a good time.
By,

Bill

Another 60s Teenager

Hadn't noticed this until now. Graduated HS in 1964 and am a Vietnam vet. Noticed somebody said they had seen "Rock Around the Clock" in the 1950s. I remember going to a movie theater in Worcester, MA with my mother and grandmother to see "Blackboard Jungle" with Glenn Ford. The movie (as some of you may well remember) featured "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley and the Comets and opened the age of Rock & Roll. As such, regardless of when you were in your teens the following website should be of interest to you: http://www.tropicalglen.com/

Karen: Glad you like it. An old friend of mine recently sent me word of the site. It is really good and I often have it on as background music when I'm on TUG or other sites. Notice that on the site if you click on the year groups (50-54, 55-59, 60-64, etc) under "Additional Channels" you can click on the shuffle button on the jukebox to mix things up. Otherwise you get the music in alphabetical order by artist. Dave
