Now He’s 64

So it’s finally happened. Paul McCartney has turned 64. So what happens to the song now? Do we (ahem) retire it? Will it be like Prince’s “1999” and be played to death for awhile, and then disappear because it’s served its purpose? Ah well, it’s fun to think about it. I remember wondering what would happen when this date came back when I was a little kid and first realized that the guy singing the song would one day reach 64. But 60 is the new 40 (or so I’m told), and most folks who get to 60-something now are far better off than members of previous generations. Life marches on!

Personally, I don’t plan on having a mid-life crisis until I’m 70. You think I’m joking…
