Baby Boomers are thought to be the generation coming after the Silent Generation. The term typically refers to anyone born from the early to mid 1940s to the mid 1960s. In their era, the baby boomers were the most active, fit and financially wealthiest generation there had ever been, and made history as the first generation to grow up believing that the world would get better by the time they were older. They were the first to receive higher income levels, meaning they had abundant food, clothes and even mid-life crisis products which the generations before them did not have. There are many elements of pop culture which baby boomers identify the most with. Some of the typically preferred songs among baby boomers include “Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John, “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” by the Righteous Brothers, “Hotel California” by the Eagles and “California Dreamin’” by the Mamas and the Papas. Some of the biggest movies of the baby boomer era include “Jaws”, “The Godfather”, “The Graduate”, “A Clockwork Orange”, “Easy Rider”, “All the President's Men”, “Annie Hall”, “The Sound of Music”, “Kramer vs. Kramer”, “Apocalypse Now” and “Reds”. Some of the most important royal figures to exist in the time of the baby boomers included Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II and Grace Kelly, and one of the favorite political couples of the era was John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline. To see how well you know these baby boomer influential figures, take this quiz now!
