Tunes for the Ages(d)\ Beetles When Im 64. At 73, I wish. Jackson Browne - In sixty-five I was seventeen (actually 25) and running up one-o-one. I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on. Well, I kind of know where I m running to now. Neil Young Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were. Not sure about that. And Sinatra - It Was a Very Good Year. Most have been, not all.
Another one from Frank...”There Used to be a Ballpark”
Sunrise, Sunset..from Fiddler on the Roof.
“One season following another.
Laden with happiness and tears.”
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few. September, November. And these few precious days I'll spend with you. These precious days I'll spend with you
Bob Dylan - “There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet but it’s gettin’ there.” Grim.
A few that come to mind...
John Cougar Mellencamp, Jack and Diane - “Oh yeah life goes on, Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone.”
John Cougar Mellencamp - Check it Out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GimNm_PKtYM
The bittersweet look back at your lost youth:
Bryan Adams - Summer of 69: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f06QZCVUHg
Don Henley - Boys of Summer
Just realizing that being an adult ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. :-) :
The Pursuit of Happiness - I’m an Adult Now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSDF8VvU13M
I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment’s gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind
At 73, I can spell their name any way I want.
Rolling Stones...what a drag it is getting old
Someday in the future the song In The Year 2525 will be nostalgic.
Yesterday When I Was Young.
I think Roy Clark did a well known version of it.
Old and Wise - Alan Parsons Project
The Living Years - Mike & the Mechanics
“So you’re scared and you’re thinkin that maybe we ain’t that young anymore; show a little faith, there’s magic in the night; you ain’t a beauty but hey you’re all right...”
Old Friends/ Simon and Garfunkel
Old friends, old friends
Sat on their park bench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
Of the high shoes of the old friends
Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settle like dust on the shoulders of the old friends
Can you imagine us years from today
Sharing a park bench quietly?
How terribly strange to be seventy
Old friends, memory brushes the same years
Silently sharing the same fears
OK, I'll play along ... can't believe this 1 hasn't been named yet. From 1973, Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album, "Time" ...
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death ...
