      Steve,

      You got it exactly right. It ain't the age of the song, it's the musical content. "That Old Quartet of Mine" is a relatively new song, but it is barbershop.

      I read somewhere that "The Old Songs" when introduced were about 40 years
      old... by that measure, today's "Old Songs" would be the ones from 1977 -
      not really sure we want to do THAT (disco ball and all).

      As part of the Atlantic Brigade we did a Billy Joel song ....VERY BARBERSHOP
      and a great song... I guess it's all in the arrangement. Age should NOT be
      the determining factor - I'm sure there are very many "Old Songs" that would
      not translate very well into the barbershop style.
