Deja Boom founders Barry and Bobbie Siegel watched one Rock and Roll revival show too many when they came to a conclusion. The sounds of the ’50’s and ’60’s were still great, but 60-year-old people singing about the problems encountered during their teenage years were badly in need of a face-lift. In order to update these classic lyrics, Barry and Bobbie performed some surgery to replace the messages dealing with the problems of growing UP, with the problems of growing OLD. They teamed with legendary performer Dean Scott to create three new songs with a ’50’s & ’60’s sound, along with nine classic Oldies with an updated treatment aimed right at the baby boomer generation.
The result? A musical celebration of every boomer’s past, present and future. This album is a great gift item, and certain to be the life of the party at any boomer gathering or reunion. It will make you laugh, cry, dance, reminisce and celebrate life… all at the same time.
Born between the end of WWII and 1964, Baby Boomers changed American life and music. Deja Boom, Inc. is doing that… all over again. Across the retail landscape, products are being developed for aging Boomers. These children of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s have a unique approach to aging. They aren’t embarrassed or inhibited by it. Boomers live life to the fullest with the dollars to do so. Deja Boom understands that philosophy. When the song, Teenager in Love becomes Old Ager in Love, the music may sound the same, but the words humorously lament the number of medical tests performed. And the teen that rocked to Summertime Blues, will get a kick out of Geriatric Blues, and lyrics that promise to “take my problem to the AARP.” The mischievous teenager Charlie Brown is replaced by the ever youthful Grandpa Bud. After 50 years,
I’m Walkin’ becomes I’m Limpin’. Doin’ the Shotgun is now Not Fun, Gettin’ Old is Not Fun. What Does It Take to Win Your Love is replaced with What Do I Take for My Cholesterol.
And we can no longer wait for The Midnight Hour. We need to get things done Before the Midnight Hour. And even after half a century, we’re all still Searchin’…for our glasses. Yes, who among us can’t say I’m afraid of Gettin’ Old, and who can’t relate to Got the Grays, Cause I’m too Old for The Blues. But despite it all, there won’t be a dry eye in the house as Dean brings Doo Wop to a whole new level with Never Too Late To Fall In Love.
