Welcome. I’m Radha Sahar, songwriter and painter. This blog features the music of my wacky sub- persona, Baby Boomer Girl. I often refer to her in the third person as she’s a fun character I act out. Baby Boomer Girl emerged in a burst of writing inspired by the joy of having a lovely new man in my life.
Baby Boomer Girl struts her generation via rebellious, touching and humorous rock/pop songs. If you want to receive my occasional, fun posts, click Subscribe – Email Updates or Subscribe via RSS links, top of the right – hand column.
“No! I won’t sit down!”… “What do you do when your baby son is 32?” … ” I’m growing young with you …” “Everything is growing slack, you want your youthful figure back …” I often post my new song lyrics – hope you enjoy them.
I love to read your comments. I’m on Twitter as babyboomergirl1 …
Here’s more about Baby Boomer Girl, in the third person, from my bio, in the fun rock-music tradition of sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll …
Baby Boomer Girl’s music pulses with born-again enthusiasm for the joys of love; she’s been through the mill with broken marriages, and now in a new-love relationship, (met him on the internet). Baby Boomer Girl’s bright, youthful outfits (by her fashion designer daughter), invite fans to celebrate their own colourful ways of ‘being out there,’ loving life.
Baby Boomer Girl’s songs, having outgrown ‘young-love’ themes of pop music, are deep, witty, and mature life & love themes. She has no interest in competing with foxy young things: after all, the only benefit of being in your 20s – firm skin – is not a patch on having it all – the fully liberated girl within & the consummate woman without! This unstoppable gal sings of love, sex & life from sheer happiness and at this age who cares what party-poopers think?
In 2009, just turning 60, she’s ‘a real boomer.’ ‘ Drugs’ now means vitamin pills and natural progesterone. ‘Detox’ is a cleansing herbal sweep from the local health shop. She’s currently addicted to waldorf salad, the smell of patchouli, and decaf soy latte. But oh for an anti-aging pill – time is all too visibly ‘in her face!’ So it’s easy exercise regimes, deep sleep, and the latest anti-wrinkle treatment. She’s walking, swimming, doing hot yoga – with no hint of the decreased energy prescribed for women her age. She’s high on life and determined as she enters the next phase in life to not be a medicated old codger, a boring old fart, or a grumpy old cynic.
Rock ‘n Roll
Baby Boomer Girl is always moved by ‘deep & meaningfuls’ – and many of her songs touch the heart. But she’s also into high-energy rock songs – a dose of light relief… Through her music she’s ready to laugh at herself – after all, she’s negotiated life’s grim patches, and put serious effort into being a responsible citizen all those years! It’s time to do a little reaping. It’s time for this grandmother of three to hit number one in the charts, to strut the stage, firing boomers everywhere to live it up! … Let’s rock, sing & dance while we still can!
