Young@Heart -- The Soundtrack

Young@Heart -- The Soundtrack by Young @ Heart Chorus
Released: Jul 2008
Label: Rhino
The sublime vocal chorus Young@Heart is made up of seniors who bypass nostalgia in order to put a new spin on modern rock songs. As the feature documentary illustrates, the group changes the way you look at lyrics: Hendrix's "Purple Haze" and Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia" are about dementia, and Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" is about mourning a dead lover, not a long-lost one. The set is joyously life-affirming but also heart-wrenchingly clear-eyed about how age affects us all, as the soundtrack's centerpiece, their moving cover of Coldplay's "Fix You," reveals.
