Rocking Chair by George Jones. It's a great commentary on getting older.

I do not worry about aging, because every thing will change. Winter turn to spring, young become the old, nothing remain the same. i thank my Lord that I am able to care for my self, go where I want to go, I have a great mind, I am able to assist other at the Senior Center where I live in Lombard, IL  I am able drive my car to visit my friends and family, I am trully blessed at 72 years young:

"In My Life" by the Beatles.

 

Amazingly prescient for Lennon & McCartney to be able to write this in their mid- twenties.

This is a hard one. There are a lot of good ones. But, most "getting older" songs are depressing like the Bee Gees' How Can You Mend A Broken Heart (I can think of younger days...etc... and live again), or "I Can't Go Back" (Bruce Springsteen), or accepting the inevitable "Autumn Of My Life" (Bobby Goldsboro). Even just "Reminicing" (Little River Band) leaves a meloncholly after-taste of "gone forever" behind. When You And I Were Young Maggie (traditional), or All Those Years Ago (George Harrison) were more up-beat, but still "in the past". Remember Christmas (Nilsson ) and Remember When.(Alan Jackson) leaves a yearning for the past (in spite of the bad times) that can't be fulfilled. And even For the Good Times (Elvis) leaves a sense of regret for not being able to "go back". The only song I can think of, that tries to bring the best of the past into the present, is One Time For Old Times.(38 Special). Even tho I pick this song by default, it's still a pretty darned good song.
