Are you a Baby Boomer?
If you were born between 1946 and 1964, you're considered a Baby Boomer, born in the post-World War II flood of babies born to soldiers returned from the war and their family.
The music of the Baby Boomers is well-known to all generations and is popular with today's youth as well as people who could be parents of Baby Boomers. This music is powerful and because we baby boomers have powerful connections between this music and the hormones of "falling in love," listening to this music as we age can be a major contributor to our feelings of wellness and well-being. Never in the history of popular music has a musical era or genre carried over 4 decades of influence. Today colleges teach the history of rock and roll. Children can sing the words and melodies while grandparents recall what they were doing years ago. A bonding of age and youth, of different generations, and of then and now.
It was a time where music divided the family. Parents and children clashed regarding what was appropriate, what was moral, and what was "sinful." Yet today, that same music bonds Baby Boomers, their families, and their memories together forever!
