Yesterday, I went with a bunch of friends and family to see Young@Heart, a documentary about a senior citizen’s choir group. The choir is lovely and brings new meaning to songs like The Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated” and The Bee Gees’ “Staying Alive.” In standard documentary form, the film follows the choir’s progress as they prepare for a big tour and emphasizes the importance of community and music in the choir member’s lives. The experience or singing together regularly is life-affirming for many Young@Heart members, and it’s inspiring to see. I recommend this movie. Here’s the trailer:

And here they are singing “I Wanna Be Sedated,” by The Ramones:

One more for the road. “Road to Nowhere,” by the Talking Heads:

Love it. May we all grow old with such gusto!
