Young at heart chorus

"Imagine an elderly choral group of singers aged 73-100. Now imagine that group belting out songs by the Rolling Stones, The Clash or Talking Heads. Meet The American Young @ Heart Chorus. It was started in 1982 by seniors in a home for the aged in Northampton, Massachusetts, and included elders who'd lived through both World Wars. Today, watch as they perform a song by New York punk band, The Ramones, called "I Want to Be Sedated." (How cool is that!... They even have a MySpace page.)"
