Must See!

I watched this movie after work today. It is a must see people! It is a documentary about a group of octogenarians who sing in a choir together. The twist is they sing rock songs! They have a younger choir leader who teaches them the songs and then they put their own spin on the songs. Their rendition of "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by The Clash is priceless. They also do "Road to Nowhere" by The Talking Heads and "Golden Years" by David Bowie.

In addition to the singing shown in the documentary we also get to know individual members of the choir. We really come to understand that their passion for singing and being a member of this choir is so important to them in their old age. It is a reason to keep going, it is a way to be productive, and a way to spread joy. Do whatever you have to; but get this movie! It is out on DVD. I ordered it from our library.
