Young At Heart

I'm watching this Independent Lens documentary on The Young At Heart Chorus -- the "Glee" of senior citizens, basically. I love this. It's so touching. You know it's risky going into a show like this because most of these people are like in their 80s. So of course one of the favorites dies about halfway through. And then they go sing at a prison and you can actually see on the faces of a bunch of the prisoners that they're getting through -- they're touching them. It's so awesome. The man who passed away was the soloist when they sang Coldplay's "Fix You." I'll never listen to that song the same way again.

Dude, old people are tough as nails. In a good way.
