Bottom line: everyone relates to music. Whether you are going to interview with the manager at an old-blooded company, or meeting prospective in-laws, the music below is always an easy way to relate. When things get tough, talk about music. In an economy like this, pulling out that music card is definitely a way to break down the corporate wall. Try it. I mean, if the interview is going really badly, what have you got to lose? Most of all, those that are not quite into to the Gen-Y malarkey that we're into will appreciate the fact that we appreciate their golden years. Picture this: a drunken conversation with your gun-cleaning, tool-using, father-in-law to be. One mention of Frankie Valli and he will turn off all the lights and start to dance with his wife, cigar in hand. Then, at that moment, you will be golden...and you can bang his daughter.

Another guy in his 60's that is still kickin'. Older men know how to rock it, but they need to be reminded sometimes, and that, my friend, is up to you. I wouldn't bring up the fact that his voice reminds you of sex, though. see more on Boz Scaggs
