It's hard not to like a large group, average age 80, singing punk, blues, and rock 'n roll with enthusiasm in the documentary Young@Heart. Be it Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia" or Cold Play's "Fix You," these seniors are fun to watch in large part because such hip songs are out of place in any room of over 30-year olds.
