Getting old...

Earlier today, I came across the following comment, posted with a YouTube video of the Steve Miller Band performing Fly like an Eagle (I wasn't actually on YouTube, but had googled the band for some now-irrelevant reason while taking a ride in an Oxford taxi):
The first time I ever smoked a joint this song started playing on my iPod, it was magic.
Oh dear... the first time I had the opportunity to not inhale was the same year that the Sony Walkman made its debut. And for those who have no idea what I'm talking about, it was to the iPod as two tin cans and a piece of string are to an iPhone.
