Not young

I'M GLAD I'M NOT YOUNG (part one)

44 years ago Cliff Richard was going on a Summer Holiday.
Today, Amy Winehouse was going to Rehab but she said no, no, no.
You don't really need to say any more, do you?

Yes, yes, yes!
For a start, people who were teenagers then are still singing
"We're all going on a Summer Holiday"
(and I dare anybody to try to read that without the tune going through their head!).
And, if you go to a karaoke you'll find that a lot of the youngsters are singing it too!
But there were plenty of drug-crazed stars years ago too.
Look at all those old jazzers, Charlie Parker, Gene Krupa etc; many film stars were permanently drugged too; and if you want to go back a bit further, you'll get me started on the Opium Poets!
