102-Year-Old Releases Hilarious Album: “The Senior Song Book”
Most people will never release an album before they die. And even fewer people will release their very first album after they turn 100. Alan Tripp is 102-years-old and has just released his very first album.
This inspirational story starts 3 years earlier when Alan penned a poem about the friends he has met at his Pennsylvania retirement community where he lives. Less than a year later for Alan's 100th birthday, his friend and neighbor, 88-year-old Marvin Weisbord, set the poem to music. This was the start of the musical duo that went on to release "Senior Song Book", an album with music that will transport you back to the 1940s, with lyrics written in the 2020s.
The album has 10 songs:
- I Just Can't Remember Your Name
- Looking in the Mirror
- Wonder Woman
- Because I Care for You
- Best Old Friends
- Never Too Late for Love
- Goodbye, Goodbye Forever
- Come On, Tell Me
- Looking in the Mirror (Remix)
- I Just Can't Remember Your Name (Remix)
Some of the lyrics from the songs are pretty hilarious, like this line from "I Just Can't Remember Your Name":
"I know I outta kiss you, but baby there's an issue. I just can't remember your name."
And this gem from "Never Too Late For Love":
"I'm too young to give up and cash out. Too old for taking the trash out."
