I Think I Might Officially Be Old...

I bought the new Paul Anka album- "Rock Swings" which are Paul's swing interpretations of "rock" songs- I put rock in quotes because I'm not sure that I would call Lionel Richie's "Hello" or "True" by Spandau Ballet as rock songs...But "Wonderwall", "BlackHole Sun" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" do qualify...but here is the bigger problem...I am totally digging this record, man...I am hip to Paul's scene, daddy-o...And the stuff does flat out swing..."Smells Like Teen Spirit" is particularly enjoyable...I know it's mental, but I really like it...He also does Billy Idol's "Eyes Without A Face" and the Cure's "Lovecats"...I'm down with it, I don't know what to say...Let me know if you want to hear it...
