Remember going to a Sock Hop?

elementary school for me
socks let you smoothly do the stroll and later, the twist!


For the 1950s was the height of the sock hop -- a pop culture phenomenon similar to the informal high school dances of today. The hops got their name because of the requirement that the frolicking teens remove their shoes so they didn't scuff up the wooden floors of the school gyms that hosted the mixers.

Not everyone thought sock hops were great fun, however. Despite the fact that schools condoned such activities, many parents were horrified by the idea since sexual taboos appeared to be shattering right and left: The music and the dances made popular at sock hops were considered far too sexualized by the older, more conservative set. Many of the most popular songs were also the work of black musicians, and racial tensions were starting to simmer to the surface during the 1950s and in the years to follow.

We had sock hops at our middle school every Friday at lunchtime in the gym. They were popular. Mostly girls danced, and the guys stood around feeling awkward while trying to look cool.

AARP starts recruiting at 50 (or before). Carlos Santana is 72. Hate to break it to you, but your disgruntlement at time flying is actually misguided by a whole generation. Gen X is now officially in the AARP target demographic. Sorry… sad smiley

Yeah, this is a little bit of creative accounting to keep their prospects up. I am keeping the AARP range as 65, so they can go to hell. Well, that's me, anyway, I don't want to get old before I am old. Fifty just ain't all that old to qualify, unless you are an early retirement tech bro.

Agreed. If you don’t want to feel old, just don’t look at a calendar, and DEFINITELY don’t look to the AARP. They have a product to sell, and they’ll try to cast as wide a net as possible.

I'm proud to be old. I got to see the birth of rock'n'roll and everything that came after!

It’s the frisky oldster image. You also see it in a lot of pharma ads. Meanwhile, the few articles I’ve read seem geared to really ancient people living in the sticks who still have their rotary phones.

We saw Santana in the Bay Area when I was in high school several times back before they got big. I think the band used to have a different name--the Santana Blues or something like that.

This was a fun thread, at least until someone posted Carlo's age - I'd sworn he was older than me.
