I can understand kids 20 or under taking this tour and scratching their heads wondering what the fuss is all about, but for me, this hit a very powerful emotional chord (pun intended). My father passed away less than a month ago and i remember being a kid listening to all this great music with him. This was the music of my childhood without knowing it. When i took the tour, it hit home at one point when the lights were dimmed and we listened to something recorded in that room. it might have been Elvis' 'Love me Tender' or Skeeter Davis' 'End of the World', but boy oh boy did this hit me hard. I had no idea what to expect when i did this tour, but this wasn't it.
One last note; i can't remember the name of our guide (dude sounds like he should be doing radio his voice was that good), but he was fantastic. You could tell he was doing this because he loves this music and respects the building.
This was exactly what i needed, and it made me remember the good times with my dad, and helped subside the sadness of seeing him lying in his coffin.
