Wake Up Tenerife, it’s a Different Century

It might be 2014, but travelling around Tenerife’s resorts you could be mistaken for thinking it was somewhere between 1964 and 1984. Walking along the promenade at Playa Fañabe I heard The Beatles, Everly Brothers, Bob Dylan and A-ha. I’ve noticed this in other resort areas. Some bars look and sound as though they’re stuck in a time warp town where people still eat the sort of bar food that went out with padded shoulders and perms, and clap-along to Neil Diamond. I’m no spring chicken in a basket, but most of the sounds I heard coming from bars were dated when I was in my late teens.
