I turned 35 a couple days ago. One of the gifts I received was this little playlist of tracks produced when the particular artist was 35 years old. It’s a neat perspective.
I haven’t fact-checked this, but the guy who gave it to me is a teacher, so I trust him.
- Queen and Bowie, “Under Pressure“
- Bowie, “Let’s Dance“
- Springsteen, “Born in the USA” and “Dancing in the Dark“
- Genesis, “Invisible Touch“
- Michael Jackson, “Will You Be There“
He also notes that Julia Childs didn’t start cooking until she was 35. Which means it’s never too late to start.
