I didn't feel the earth move under my feet

Songs of yesteryears: Singer-songwriter Carole King in 2011 documentary Troubadours, which featured another 1970s singer, James Taylor.

Life is but a tapestry.

Hands up those of you who sang to yourself I Feel The Earth Move Under My Feet by Carole King when you read the news about people in Singapore experiencing tremors during the earthquake last week.

Okay, those of you with your hands up, get out of here!

You're old and ruining what little street cred I have by reading this column. You're scaring away my youth demographic. The song is from 1971!

You're so old you probably think The Stone Roses are floral sculptures and you're lamenting the closure of Rediffusion at the end of the month.

Here's a quick test:

When you learnt that Rediffusion is shutting down after 63 years, what was your reaction?

1. "So sad."

2. "Rediffusion is still around?"

3. "What is Rediffusion?"

If your answer is other than No. 3, please go collect your CPF and blow it all at a casino right now. If you hurry, maybe you can catch Wicked before the musical ends its run at Marina Bay Sands next week. Wear a bib in case you drool after falling asleep during the show.

Just to prove my point, I asked my 15-year-old son what he thought Rediffusion was.
