This is the kind of thing that moves me! The Zimmers is a band with a choir of pensionists, most of which live in old people’s homes or isolated in their flat. They’re not just old, they#re impressively old people, the lead singer is 90 and by far not the oldest. The band grew out of a BBC documentary to advocate the cause of older people and have been name after a British brand of walking frame. Here is their myspace page – revenues from the song will go to a charity for senior citizens. And here is the video:
It may sound this ridiculous, but I watched this with tears in my eyes and the urge to liberate other old people from their homes.
