In My Life - Lennon & McCartney (but lyrics considered to be primarily the work of John Lennon)

 

This song was released in 1965 on the album, Rubber Soul. Amazing lyrics when you consider that Lennon was only 25 at the time.

 

"In My Life"

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

@Blink182 played O2 in London this week; then next morning @markhoppus (bassist) walked the streets complimenting peeps wearing the show t-shirt.

 

One said "like you would know"; one said they'd attended the concert... no one fell to the ground or whipped out their cell phone for selfies...

 

First, if you are paying to go to a concert, don't you know the band members?????

 

Second, is this a pov non-North America, or what?

 


ummm   yes  it would seem that if you are going to a concert you might know the band members but..  I was walking with my sister some years ago in downtown Cleveland and saw the drummer of Aerosmith walking with his wife.  I stopped to tell him how long I had been a fan and that I was surprised that he could walk around without a crowd forming and he said that nobody recognizes the drummer..  he was surprised that I did.  I found that hard to believe but there you go.

It's not always so easy looking back and seeing how long the road behind you is.

The Songs About Getting Older

2,474 Views
Message 329 of 329

""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?
