Young at Heart

Synopsis: When Alex enters the lives of the musical Tuttle family, each of the three daughters falls for him. He is charming, good looking and personable. Laurie and Alex seem made for each other and become engaged. When Barney comes into the picture to help Alex with some musical arrangements matters become complicated. He is seen as a challenge by Laurie, who can't believe anyone could be as cynical, and she is more than a match for his gloomy outlook on life.

[Applause, Faint ]

[ Applause, Cheering ]

[ Rock ]

[ Continues ]

Owwwww!

[ Whooping, Laughing ]

[ Cheering Continues ]

Darling, you've gotta let me know

[ Continues ]

Should I stay or should I go

If you say that you'll be mine

I'll be yours till the end of time

But you've gotta let me know

Should I stay or should I go

[ Stephen ] "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?"

That's a punk song, isn't it?

I would say so.

Shit.

Did you-

Have you ever heard it before?

Always tease, tease, tease

You're happy when Im on my knees

One day's fair, the other's black

So if you want me off your back

Then you've gotta let me know

Should I stay or should I go

Should I stay or should I go now

[ Stephen Narrating]

Billed as "Seniors Behaving Badly"..

Young A t Heart

is a chorus like no other.

With an average age of 80...

their renditions of songs

from the likes of Outkast...

Radiohead, Jimi Hendrix

and The Clash...

have won them sensational reviews

all over the world.

So com e on and I et m e know

Can you think of any other names of people

who sing those songs that you sing?

Well, the Beatles.

We have sung some of theirs.

Rolling Stones,

they've come into it.

And the, um-

Oh, a more recent one.

Uh, Crash?

Should I stay or should I go now

[ Stephen Narrating]

I first saw the chorus in London a year ago...

and was instantly hooked.

Now I'm in America to spend

the next seven weeks filming them...

as they prepare to put on a new show.

In the process, I find myself

acquiring 2 4 new grandparents...

except they're nothing like

any grandparents I've ever seen.

Should I stay or should I go

[ Laughing, Cheering, Applause ]

Thank you!

Thank you.

[ Stephen Narrating ]

It's a Thursday afternoon...

in the choruss hometown

of Northampton, Massachusetts...

and the first day of rehearsals

for the new show...

which they'll perform

in just seven weeks ' time.

[ Chattering ]

[ Man ]

Hello!

Charming stuff.

But in New Orleans theyre still-

[ Exhales ]

- Did you bring any booze with you?

- No.

Its in here. Its in here.

[ Chuckling ]

[ Stephen Narrating ]

The choruss director, Bob Cilman...

started Young A t Heart

back in 1 982...

with a group of seniors performing

old vaudeville numbers at a meal center.

One night, an 84-year-old called

Diamond Lil stood up in the middle of a show...

and did a version of

Manfred Manns "Do Wah Diddy"..

which brought the house down.

Things were never the same again.

Good afternoon.

Is everybody happy youre all here?

- [ Cheering, Chattering ]

- Id like to thank you all

for showing up on time.

That was very cool.

Very cool.

First thing we gotta do,

and it's really important today...

is wish Jack Schnepp happy birthday.

- So, uh-

- [ Cheering, Applause ]

[ Man ]

All right, Jack!

It's a specially great

birthday for Jack today...

'cause while Jack is sitting here...

we have the possibility that

hell pass a kidney stone for us...

which is just-

[ Men Chattering, Indistinct ]

Is there any other medical issues

that people wanna reveal here today?

U h, no.

Anybody having a baby?

Well, Jack, good luck.

There's about seven or so new songs

that I wanna take a look at.

Id like to get through

three of them today. All right?

- Whoa!

- No problem.

[ Stephen Narrating]

Just as I'm beginning to think...

this is going to be some sort

of gentle afternoon sing-along...

Bob pitches the chorus straight into

the first new song for the show...

a track called "Schizophrenia "

by punk band Sonic Youth.

[ Bob ] Billy, listen to this.

This has got a lot of good drum stuff.
