Silver Threads among the Gold Re: The Songs About Getting Older

""Hope I die before I get old," sang 21-year-old Roger Daltrey in 1965—and 43 years later, he's still singing it. Rock 'n' roll has always been invested in a Byronic cult of blazing youth and beautiful corpses. But as tyros have turned into reunion-tour warhorses, rockers have had to come to terms with the ironies—and the indignities and the glories—of old age."

 

What are the songs that talk about getting older, looking back, etc?

Has anyone mentioned "Landslide" by Stevie Nicks yet or "When I'm 64" by The Beatles? Those were the first ones to come to mind.  Woman Very Happy

Young at Heart by Frank Sinatra beacause that's how I feel.  However, a close second is the Beatle's song "When I'm 64" because it's so funny, even though I'd have to think back a long way to remember being 64!
