Yeah, we always loved it when Mum and Dad got out their old records. They didn't do it enough, but when they did, us kids enjoyed it.

In my friendship group you were extra cool if you liked/knew Queen/The Beatles/basically anything pre-90's.

As a teacher, I've noticed some kids are a bit "ick, it's not of right now, so I hate it." but I think more of them are interested in older music, at least in passing.

A scary amount of my Year 8/9's (13-15 year olds) haven't read Harry Potter. This hurts me.

And the realisation that half my students weren't even born when 9/11 happened was strange. Them thinking of it as ancient history made a lot more sense... the Berlin Wall? Sheesh.

Oh hell does the fact that many college freshmen now don't personally recall 9/11 boggles the mind.
As well as HP being ancient for kids the same age as me when I read those books.
